A county with plenty to see and do, Devon is located in the South West of England and is a truly fantastic area of the country to visit and spend your holiday. There really is a wealth of activities on offer in Devon and they are all set in some of the most beautiful countryside that you will find in the UK.
You can trek across Exmoor National Park by foot or on the back of a pony. Pony-trekking is really popular in Devon and is a great way to see the countryside. There are also some beautiful beaches for you to enjoy and some rocky coastline to explore if you take a walk along the coastal path. The scenery is absolutely magnificent.
There are many nice towns and villages in Devon and one of these is Exmouth. It is located right where the River Exe joins the sea. Exmouth is a very popular for families who want a beach holiday but who also want to be in close proximity to the rest of the county. The town has all the facilities of a seaside town and you are guaranteed a great time here.
Another nice town is Ashburton which is situated in the south of the county. Again it is popular for beach holidays and is an ideal location to explore Exmoor from. There is a lot of history to Ashburton and there are plenty of museums, antique shops and galleries to visit. It is also a good base for walking, canoeing, fishing and pony-trekking. Devon really is a glorious place and the whole family will thoroughly enjoy a holiday here.
