Cuisine and gastronomy
Devon’s long coastline makes the county famous for its seafood, and some of the best fish in the country is caught and served in Devon’s restaurants. From humble fish and chips eaten out of paper on the seafront at Torquay to Michelin-starred eateries and gastro pubs, Devon has it all. Get recommendations about the best local eateries from people living close to your Devon vacation rental property, as you just can't beat local knowledge about that up and coming gem of a restaurant which hasn't featured in the guide books yet. You can’t go to Devon without having a cream tea – scones laden with cream and jam and served with tea or coffee. Traditional cream tea is eaten in the afternoon, and all cafes, coffee shops and hotels will serve this sumptuous treat.
Weather and climate
The south-west of England boasts the best climate in the UK, and has warm summers and mild winters. The best time to visit is between late May and early September, although if you’re a water sports fan, September and October have the warmest sea temperatures. Snow is uncommon in Devon, except on the higher ground around Dartmoor. Summer months can be hot, with temperatures rivalling the Mediterranean resorts. Why not look for a Devon vacation rental property with an outdoor pool, which will provide the perfect place to cool off on a warm July afternoon?
The best sights of Devon
The main reason for visiting Devon is the beaches. Go to the five kilometres of golden sands at Woolacombe Beach for family friendly swimming and sandcastles, Croyde Bay for rockpooling and surfing, or Torquay for the traditional British seaside vacation experience. Nine of Devon's beaches, including the popular Blackpool Sands beach in Dartmouth and South Sands beach in Salcombe, have been awarded the Blue Flag accreditation as testament to their cleanliness.
Devon isn’t short of history either, and it’s just a short hop from many Devon vacation rentals to Plymouth Hoe or Exeter Cathedral. Crealy Adventure Park offers a mix of children's attractions alongside other rollercoasters to keep the teenagers happy, and a great plan for cooler days is the enormous National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth. For family friendly days out from your Devon vacation homes, visit the apes and giraffes at Paignton Zoo, or the miniature houses at Babbacombe Model Village. To discover the great outdoors in Devon, look no further than the greater Dartmoor area. This region boasts beautiful national parks with rolling hills and granite outcroppings which are home to wild ponies, along with many other animals.
Activities with children
Chances are that children will be more than happy playing on one of Devon’s many beaches close to your Devon vacation rental. There are so many beaches in Devon that you could spend a month going to one each day and still not see them all. For a break from sandcastle-making, book the kids into surf school at Croyde or Woolacombe to learn the basics of surfing or bodyboarding, or take them to see the UK’s largest aquarium in Plymouth.
Devon is predominantly rural, but the mid-size city of Exeter features plenty of art, culture and nightlife, alongside its breathtaking cathedral. The town of Plymouth also has a charming Old Town district with offbeat restaurants, galleries and bars. If you are still yearning for a trip to a bigger city, hop on a train for a short trip up to Bristol for shopping, restaurants and everything a major city has to offer. The next county to the west, Cornwall, has just as much for visitors as Devon, and Tintagel castle and the pretty village of Fowey are both worth visiting. Take a look at leaflets and other information in your Devon vacation home - it's impossible to cram everything there is to see into one visit, and you'll have to prioritise.
