Devon offers freedom. Its rippling, beach-fringed landscape is studded with historic homes, vibrant cities and wild, wild moors. Here you can ditch schedules and to-do lists and hike a rugged coast path, take a scenic boat trip, or get lost in hedge-lined lanes that aren't even on your map.

Discover collegiate Exeter, touristy Torquay, yachting-haven Dartmouth and alternative Totnes. Or escape to wilderness Dartmoor and the remote, surf-dashed north coast. To replenish your energy, you can sample wines made from the vines beside you and food that's fresh from field, furrow or sea. However you decide to explore Devon – surfing, cycling, kayaking, horse riding, sea swimming or barefoot beachcombing – it'll feel like coming home.
