From stunning sunsets over Barnstaple to meeting the Dartmoor ponies, we have 23 reasons that prove Devon is the prettiest county…

1. We love a challenging hike through the meadows in north Devon…

2. …and the coastal paths along some of Devon’s prettiest beaches

3. Lewtrenchard Manor is the perfect destination for a weekend away…

4. …and the long country roads are a good excuse to absorb the beautiful vistas

5. Treat yourself spending the day shopping in Exeter’s city centre…

6. …or strolling through Totnes’ streets on a peaceful evening

7. We love sitting by the River Dart and watching the world pass by…

8. …and enjoying the sunset over Barnstaple

9. Early morning scenic dog walks along the coast…

10. …bumping into Dartmoor’s beautiful ponies

11. Cosy cottages nestled in the picturesque countryside…

12. …whiling away the day with friends on the pebbled beach of Budleigh

13. Going fishing at Axmouth harbour…

14. …before dining at one of Devon’s restaurants with a view

15. Quirky streets in near impossible locations

16. It’s so picturesque that film productions are constantly looking to use our scenery...

17. ...and it was a similar inspiration for countless works of literature

18. After exploring Dartmoor or Exmoor there is always a cosy pub waiting to welcome you

19. Our pubs also have got their Sunday lunches perfected

20. As we’re surrounded by incredible coastline, our fish is always fresh

21. We put the cream on our scones before the jam

22. We’re home to enormous stretches of the South West Coast Path

23. And finally, as we all know, Devon’s far superior to Cornwall!
