Things to do in Devon

In the private village of Clovelly, it’s down with automobiles and power to donkeys in an attempt to retain the spirit of the village’s fishing past. Pop into the Fisherman’s Cottage, the Kingsley Museum and the donkey stables.
The golden sands of Woolacombe and Croyde are picture perfect; navigate the incredible hand-carved tunnels at Ilfracombe’s Tunnels Beach to find a Victorian bathing pool; Saunton Sands is a surfer’s paradise. We have a range of budget hotels in Plymouth for every occasion.
Dartmoor is scattered with fascinating ancient ruins but Grimspound is a definite ’to do’. Dating back to the Bronze Age, this settlement consists of the remains of twenty four stone houses and a boundary wall.
