Places to stay in Devon

Devon's location on the western-most part of England makes it a fantastic family holiday destination, boasting some of the warmest weather and most varied landscapes in the UK. It contains Dartmoor National Park and Exmoor National Park, both of which are bursting with wildlife, beautifully managed by local conservation efforts with a network of footpaths for days of exploration.

Devon is also home to the cathedral city of Exeter, and the larger city of Plymouth which, situated between the mouth of the rivers Plym and Tamar, boasts one of the world's most stunning natural harbours. Expect deliciously fresh seafood and plenty to see and do in one of the UK's best regions for family holidays.
