Take a look at divine Devon...

 

Brixham

Feel the history

Brixham is known for its buzz -  it’s one of the UK’s busiest fishing ports and the largest working harbour. Tap into its culture by browsing its countless art galleries, or seek out the masters at work at the artists’ corner on the Strand. There are five decks of discovery for families on the replica of Sir Francis’ Drake’s Golden Hind, or you can take a coastal tour or fishing trip to get to know the local scene even better.

Dittisham

A dainty treat

Close to Dartmouth, but much more pint-sized, is Dittisham with its unspoilt feel and river views. You’ll find yourself itching to explore the sublime setting of this village, which is fine because there are plenty of walking routes to try. Within the village you can enjoy a pint in The Ferry Boat pub overlooking the harbour, or head to the Anchorstone Cafe for some mussels. Bring the bacon along too - the crabbing here is renowned! If you feel the need to explore further, Dame Agatha Christie’s estate, Greenway, is a short ferry ride away.

Dartmouth

Stunning harbour

Commanding jaw dropping views of the Dart Estuary, Dartmouth sits within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Beauty. You can even ramble into it from the scenic South West Coast Path. Savour some crab cakes in one of the many excellent eateries along the harbour front and enjoy the comings and goings of the boats. Then hop aboard to take a trip round the estuary yourself, or spend time exploring the town’s maritime history. For true boating fanatics there’s the annual Royal Regatta, a spectacle that sweeps through the town every summer.
