UrlaubCornwall’s guide to what to see and do on holiday in Devon.

From the busy city of Exeter to the open wilderness of Dartmoor, and everywhere in between, there is plenty to see for the whole family on a holiday in Devon.
Devon is the last county before Cornwall when travelling from Bristol or London, so is a great place to stop on your tour of southwest England.
Exeter is the southwest’s largest city and therefore offers many options for your holiday visit. The modern high street has all the shops and restaurants to keep you busy all day, but Exeter is most recognisable for its historic town centre. The cathedral is a stunning example of English architecture, but the combination of Roman, medieval and modern developments create a unique experience.
There are regular flights from Dusseldorf to Exeter throughout the summer months.

Woolacombe Bay, Devon
The English Riviera is just west of Exeter, and includes Torquay, Paignton, and Salcombe. It is one of the most popular family holiday destinations in the South West. The Victorian seaside towns are now modern resorts with great beaches, palm fringed esplanades offering a variety of family activities for children of all ages.
Further west, on your way into Cornwall, is Dartmoor National Park. For walking holidays, the rugged landscape and rocky tors of Dartmoor are well worth a visit. The famous wild Dartmoor ponies making their homes in the local villages will amaze your children.

Dartmoor, Devon
There is still plenty to see on the north coast of Devon. There are the historic river ports of Barnstaple and Bideford and the wonderful sandy beaches of Woolacombe and Ilfracombe are perfect for young children or surfing teenagers.
