Devon Guide

The County of Devon offers a wide range of walking. With two lengthy sections of coastal path along the north and south coasts the variety of walking on offer is hard to match anywhere in the British Isles. Add to this the wild moors of the Dartmoor National Park with the highest land in southern England and you soon realise why Devon has such a high reputation among walkers. Elsewhere there are many pretty villages to explore as well as vast tracts of rural farmland with a patchwork of fields surrounded by hedgerows.
