Touring Devon


Exmoor National Park by Barbara Ballard Devon is home to Dartmoor National Park and a section of Exmoor National Park, the two linked by the 100-mile-long path, the Two Moors Way that begins at Ivybridge. With two national parks and two coastlines, the county has much to offer. Wooded river valleys, heather-covered moorland, and rocky coves make up much of the countryside. 9 stones Devon courtesy Steves Ancient Sites Seaside resorts, ancient ports, market towns, and villages contribute to the mix. Prehistoric ruins add mystery to the moors.

Devon Coastal Waters by Barbara Ballard The northern coastline offers up dramatic views across the water and down the jagged cliffs. A case in point are the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth. The Edwardian/Victorian holiday town of Lynton, perched on the clifftop, looks down on Lynmouth, a traditional fishing village. Lynmouth harbour by Barbara Ballard A cliffside "railway" connects the two. Near Lynmouth is the National Trust property of Watersmeet in a beautiful tree-lined gorge at the confluence of the East Lyn and Hoar Oak Water. After enjoying walks along the river, take time to have a treat and a cup of tea on the terrace of Watersmeet House.

Clovelly Devon street view by Barbara Ballard Another coastal village worth a visit is Clovelly. Leave your car at the carpark (fee) on the edge of the clifftop to see this unusual village. It's a frozen-in-time traditional fishing village crawling down the steep cliff to its harbour at the water's edge. Before you head down 400 feet to the bottom along the cobbled street (no access for cars), be sure to view the video of the village's history at the visitor centre. Clovelly Harbour by Barbara Ballard Take time to walk all the way to the bottom with a stop to see the two tiny churches and the Fisherman's cottage and Kingsley exhibition. If you don't fancy a walk back up the steep hill to your car, there's a backroad service via Land Rover (small charge) from the hotel at the harbour.

Barricane Beach North Devon between Mortehoe and Woolacombe courtesy Cornwallcam A road skirts Devon's north coast where Woolacombe and Saunton tempt with their extensive sandy beaches. In good weather traffic is heavy and parking at a premium. Watersports include windsurfing and kayaking. In June the Goldcoast OceanFest is a two-day watersports festival. At Braunton Burrows are 1000 acres of sand dunes that have earned UNESCO world biosphere status.

Ilfracombe Devon harbour courtesy Suffolkcam Ilfracombe is the north coast's largest resort, but Croyden is your editor's favourite village along this coast. The cliff-top village of Mortehoe has a museum of maritime history, country skills, and farming.

Barnstaple is a busy market town where you can do banking, pick up groceries, check your email at the library, do a bit of shopping, and enjoy several pleasant eating spots. The Tarka Trail is centered on Barnstaple and provides off-road opportunities for walking, cycling and one of the most scenic train rides in the region down to Exeter.

Arlington Court by Barbara Ballard Seven miles from Barnstaple, set in beautiful wooded country is the family seat of the Chichesters, Arlington Court. The current house, built in 1822, is full of collections amassed from their travels: ship models, pewter pieces, costumes, tea caddies, candle snuffers, paperweights, and shells, silver, Regency and Victorian furniture, English and French porcelain and snuff boxes, English and Irish glass, and jade, soapstone and crystal animals. The National Trust has a nice tearoom, just beware the peacocks. They like to steal your food.

Rosemoor Garden scene Devon by Barbara Ballard Great Torrington, near Barnstaple, is home to Rosemoor, garden of the Royal Horticultural Society. The 40 acres in the Torridge valley contain 2000 roses, a lake, a waterfall, an arboretum, lawns, and several different kinds of gardens. A walk goes under the highway to another part of the garden. It's a secluded and peaceful place. You can buy plants here and enjoy a meal in the restaurant. The shop has everything for the plant lover.

Great Torrington has two other attractions: Torrington 1646 is all about the civil war and Torrington's history. At Dartington Crystal you can watch glass making, see an exhibition on the history of glass, and perhaps make a purchase in the shop.

Killerton House National Trust by Barbara Ballard A garden worth visiting is at Killerton house (National Trust). Sited on a hillside, the 20 acres showcase rhododendrons, rare trees, magnolias and herbaceous borders. In addition there are parkland, wood, and meadow walks. The house, a mecca for costume lovers. Special exhibits as well as other items from the collection are displayed in the rooms. The restaurant, located at the back of the house overlooks the gardens and serves excellent food.

If you have time, take a boat trip to Lundy island, home to deer, seals, ponies, dolphins, and rare birds. The waters of the island are designated a marine nature reserve. There is a small village with an inn and a Victorian church.

Dart River Holne Dartmoor Devon by Barbara Ballard Dartmoor, in Devon's heart, is still a wild and beautiful land where villages are scattered in the river valleys or share the moortops with sheep. Be sure to visit the excellent High Moorland Visitor Centre in Princetown. It has all the details you will want on Dartmoor.

Exhibitions tell of the natural and cultural heritage and include wildlife, archaeology, geology, granite quarrying, peat working, mining, military training, water, farming, and forestry. Video and slide presentations and talks take place in the av theatre. A special display gives information on the Duchy of Cornwall's Dartmoor Estate--it takes up more than 40% of the national park. Accommodation booking, books, maps, and other items are for sale. (Open daily 10-5, 4pm in winter).

Buckland in the Moor Church clock by Barbara Ballard Spend time winding your way along the tiny backroads of Dartmoor to discover charming small villages such as Widecomb-in-the-Moor, where several roads converge, and Lustleigh, with a great general store where you can stock up on supplies. At Buckland-in-the-Moor, spot the unusual clock on the church tower.

Medieval Clapper Bridge Post bridge Devon with new bridge in back ground by Barbara Ballard At Postbridge, in the centre of the park, is an ancient stone clapper bridge. It's one of many ancient sites found on the moorland. On the edge of the moor, 300-foot deep Lydford gorge offers a slippery path through the woods and along the river with its waterfall and whirlpools. In the village is Lydford castle (EH) and a medieval inn.

For a change of pace visit Drogo castle (National Trust) at Drewsteignton, a fake baronial building designed by Lutyens in granite and oak. Life below stairs as well as the elaborate upstairs rooms is on show. There's a terraced formal garden with rose beds, a croquet lawn, and views over Dartmoor.

Buckfast Abbey Devon by Barbara Ballard The historic mill town of Buckfastleigh, on Dartmoor's edge is home to Buckfast abbey, a working Benedictine community and church. Built on the ruins of a former abbey, it's definitely worth a visit. Don't miss the remarkable stained glass window (made by the monks) in the Blessed Sacrament chapel. An exhibition tells the story of the abbey, and a restaurant feeds the hungry.

Buckland Abbey Devon Sir Frances Drake home by Barbara Ballard Devon's Tamar river valley near Dartmoor is a historical farming and mining area. Much of the valley is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Buckland abbey, home of Sir Francis Drake is close by Yelverton. Inside are all the interesting details on his life and adventures.

Garden House near Yelverton Devon by Barbara Ballard The Garden House is five minutes away. It's a fascinating hillside garden of eight acres with more than 6000 different varieties of plants. Plan to spend at least an hour here wandering among the many paths and enjoying the views on strategically placed benches. There's a lovely tearoom for refreshments afterwards.

Knightshayes near Tiverton Devon NT by Barbara Ballard The historic home of Knightshayes Court (National Trust) is near Tiverton in the northeast part of the county. The home was designed by William Burges and begun in 1869. The fascinating rooms reflect Victorian decoration and medieval romanticism. The grounds are full of rare plants and trees, while the outstanding garden showcases topiary, tree peonies, shrubs and roses in its formal garden terraces. Woodland walks add to the attractions.

12th century Tiverton castle and its gardens contain furniture, historical exhibits, a hosta walk, kitchen garden and woodland garden. If you are interested in social history visit the museum in Tiverton where all the details from Roman times to the present are on display. Of special interest are the railway and agricultural items.

Bickleigh Castle medieval chapel near Tiverton Devon by Barbara Ballard Four miles south of Tiverton is Bickleigh castle, (HHA) shown by tour only. The buildings vary from a 12th century chapel (the most interesting) to a medieval gatehouse to a 16th-17th century great hall and house.

Okehampton Castle EH Devon by Barbara Ballard On a hilltop above Okehampton are the extensive castle ruins of Okehampton castle (EH). The Norman motte castle was enlarged in the 11th century and later in the 14th century. Henry VIII destroyed much of it when he executed the owner, the earl of Devon, for treason in 1539.

Plymouth, having suffered severe bombing in World War II, is a city still stuck in the grey concrete 1950s. There's one attraction on the suburban edge of this frantic traffic jam, Saltram House (National Trust). The house was built in the mid-1700s and incorporated parts of a medieval house on the site. Parts were re-designed by Robert Adams.

Between Plymouth and Exeter the mild climate encouraged the development of a number of seaside resorts: Torquay, Paignton (five beaches), Salterton at the mouth of the River Otter, Exmouth and Salcombe, a sailing and fishing harbour where subtropical plants flourish. The port of Teignmouth is a popular resort enlivened by its sandy beach and red sandstone cliffs. Dawlish is a Georgian and Victorian town that will make you think you are on the Mediterranean with its palm trees. Torquay was the home of the famous mystery writer, Agatha Christie. Aficionados can follow her trail around the area and discover the settings for some of her books.

Dartmouth Devon Inner Harbour by Barbara Ballard Dartmouth has a harbour, medieval houses, and a 15th century castle (EH), guarding the Dart estuary's deep-water harbour. At Brixham, you'll find a replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship, the Golden Hind, a heritage museum, and a national nature reserve.

Powderham Castle Devon by Barbara Ballard Powderham Castle castle sits in a deer park by the Exe river estuary. It belongs to the earl of Devon. Entrance is by guided tour only--one of the most entertaining your editor has ever been on. The medieval-1700s historic home also offers woodland walks, medieval jousting, and special events. There's a country store and a restaurant with limited offerings.

Exeter main street courtesy Cornwallcam The city of Exeter has a number of attractions, among them the historic quayside where you can learn the history of the town at the visitor centre. If you fancy going underground, try a tour of the 14th century underground passages originally built as fresh water conduits. There's lots of shopping in a city this size. Don't overlook the Norman twin towers of 850-year-old Exeter cathedral, considered one of England's finest examples of decorated Gothic work.

Exeter Cathedral Devon Bible screen by Barbara Ballard Also in Exeter is the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery. Its world cultures collection is of particular importance. Besides local history, the galleries highlight archaeology, geology, clocks, ceramics, glassware, metalwork, and silver.

Mortehoe beach courtesy Suffolkcam Devon has a mixture of attractions from sandy beaches to clifftop villages to wild moorland to wooded river valleys. Prehistoric remains, ruined castles, stately homes, and gardens all contribute to make it a destination for all interests.
