The month of November traditionally sees the transition of Autumn into Winter and what a beautiful time of year it is too. The woodland creatures maybe hiding away until Spring but we would always recommend making the most of everything that Devon has to offer with some stunning scenery, fabulous places to eat and maybe even pick up some of those much-sought after early Christmas bargains!
