Sea caves & sandstoneDevon

Famous for the glittering waters of the English Riviera and the silvery crags that peek from beneath blankets of purple heather; this is a landscape for adventure and relaxation seekers alike. Devon is home to a variety of hidden wild swimming spots, beautiful rural walks, majestic medieval towns with gothic cathedrals and miles of unspoiled sandy beaches. With its crystal-clear waters and dramatic sea cliffs, it’s easy to understand why Devon is England’s true hidden gem.

Devon has some of the most beautiful countryside and coastline that England has to offer, boasting two of the United Kingdom’s fifteen national parks, Exmoor and Dartmoor and an UNESCO Global Geopark. The county is also close to other excellent adventure destinations situated in the southwest of the country, such as Cornwall, Bristol and Dorset, which draw thousands of visitors every year.
