With festive lights twinkling above the streets of Devon and landscapes dusted with frost this winter, it doesn’t get much prettier than these picture-perfect scenes in the county

From Exeter’s stunning cathedral glittering with frost …

to Tavistock’s gardens covered in a white blanket.

With twinkling lights in Barnstaple’s town centre…

to beautiful sunsets over Teignmouth.

As people gather in the town centre of Sidmouth to watch Christmas lights in the sky…

some may take an evening stroll along the fields of Crediton.

In Great Torrington, tread through the white coated landscape…

or explore Sourton’s romantic landmarks.

While the stars light up the sky in Holsworthy…

Clovelly is lit up with Christmas illuminations.

As autumn turns to winter Newton Abbot railway makes a breathtaking scene …

while the grounds at Ivybridge are sprinkled with white.

There are beautiful sunsets over the water at Torquay…

and vibrant colours in the sky in Totnes.

Take a fresh morning walks in frost kissed Dawlish…

while in Merrivale the floors may be sprinkled with snow.
