Top Attractions

A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Devon’s North Coast is a lovely part of the country, so take your camera. There are 171 square km of wild cliffs, rocky coastline, beaches, waterfalls and lovely villages. If you are near Devonport, check out the Naval Heritage Centre and learn about the history of one of England’s great ports, including the history of America which began at Plymouth with the sailing of the Pilgrim Fathers. They are remembered at the Mayflower Steps in Barbican.

Kids & Family

Take the kids to Pricky Ball Farm or if they prefer larger animals there is Combe Martin Wildlife Dinosaur Park. Watch the kids closely so they don’t get eaten by the dinosaurs! Boys, especially, will love the excitement of Diggerland, and the whole family will enjoy a visit to the amazing Watermouth Family Theme Park Castle.

Shopping & Nightlife

Try out the Shops at Dartington, or go to the Atlantic Village Outlet Shops for some bargains. If you are looking for a night outing, have a look at what is offered at the Royal Theatre in Plymouth, or if you are in Exeter, try the Northcott Theatre.

Day Tours

What about a day out riding in this lovely countryside? The Mullacott Equestrian Centre will outfit you with noble steeds. Spend the day at the Yaraks Falconry Centre for some amazing aerobatics, or head out to Lundy Island for a good bit of sea air.
