The Great Outdoors

South Devon hosts some of the country’s best landscapes from Dartmoor National Park to the popular coastal path stretching from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset.

Whether you are walking on Dartmoor or along the coast path, stop off at traditional pubs along your route for a bite to eat or a drink in the sunshine. Another way to discover South Devon is to enjoy the countryside on horseback, whether you are a beginner or experienced rider there is a riding school for you. SRS-training riding school is perfect for beginners and children. Alternatively, you could hire a bike so you can investigate the woodlands and lanes at your own pace.

For the more adventurous explorer why not enjoy South Devon from a height and give a hot air balloon ride a go. You will view the formidable granite rocks on Dartmoor National Park, the medieval castles, ancient woodlands and the famous tors as you soar high above South Devon.

For adrenaline fueled activities you could try GoApe at Haldon Forest, an assault course built amongst the tree canopy consisting of zip wires and Tarzan swings, Go Karting near Exeter, outdoor rock climbing or Paintball all set among Devon’s beautiful countryside.

For a relaxing holiday that is perfect for all the family you can explore the many extensive sandy beaches and picture postcard villages and towns. Sample our famous Cream Teas and local dairy ice creams, such as Salcombe Dairy Ice Cream, whilst putting your feet up in the sunshine. You could try your hand at golf at the many golf courses dotted around South Devon, such as, Thurlestone Golf Club and Dartmouth Golf and Country Club. All the golf courses have stunning landscape backdrops whether they are on cliff tops or surrounded by rolling hills.
