These are perfect for picnics and relaxing on or for water enthusiasts there are plenty of schools that will teach you how to surf, kite board, SUP (stand up paddleboard) or kayak.  The North Devon coasts also offers some dramatic coastal walks along the South West Coast Path. Head to Hartland Point, one of the UK’s wildest and remote headlands imaginable with stunning views out to sea.

The Devon countryside also offers plenty of opportunity to explore the stunning landscape, either on foot or pedal. Exmoor National Park is a fantastic base for a short break, with plenty of cosy cottages hidden away in the rolling landscape.

Stop off in one of the many historic country pubs which serve up hearty meals and local ales. On the North Devon Coast the dramatic Valley of the Rocks near Lynton is an ideal walk for blowing the cobwebs away. 

Cyclists are really spoilt for choice in Devon, with many off road routes meandering across the counties breath-taking countryside.
