Devonshire’s Heartland
Discover Devonshire’s Heartland at the very heart of the West Country, the perfect base for a whole new holiday experience.

Relax and unwind in the acres of rolling hills and winding river valleys. Browse the shops of the market towns of Tiverton, Crediton and Cullompton and marvel at the tranquillity of the pretty thatched villages, too numerous to mention. Explore the area’s beautiful hills and valleys, or stretch your wings to visit Exmoor, Dartmoor or the Blackdown Hills, or north and south Devon coasts are within easy access.

No matter what time of year you visit you can feel yourself forgetting the rush of everyday life from the moment you arrive. Watch nature cast its spell on the landscape, and marvel at the changing scenery, from blossoms, to autumn leaves, from bare field to the unique ‘patchwork quilt’ of rich agricultural pasture. The mild climate encourages spring flowers (and early visitors!) to bloom long before the harsher northern winter has lost its frosty grip on the land.

Discover how Devonshire’s Heartland moves at a gentler pace than other resorts so close by on our beautiful coastlines. And yet this delightfully unspoilt area always seems reassuringly far from the hectic seaside crowds and traffic problems with the local people making you feel right at home.

The soothing effect could also have a lot to do with the friendliness of the locals, always ready to greet you and help you with a smile to your holiday accommodation – from caravan or campsite, through farmhouses, B & B’s and self-catering cottages to luxury hotels.

The local cuisine too, relies on the freshest local produce for its popularity with visitors. For instance, couldn’t you just fancy a hot pasty and a cool pint in an ancient thatched pub, or a generous helping of Devonshire clotted cream and home made jam served up on a still-warm scone?

Devonshire’s Heartland has so much to offer. Appreciate its history and visit it’s castles, stately homes, museums and mills and discover their secrets. Admire its art, sculpture and local traditions. Be active, walk, cycle or partake in many other outdoor activities. Enjoy having fun as a family or relaxing by the riverside. Whatever you’re after, visit Devonshire’s Heartland and discover it for yourself, a warm and friendly welcome is waiting for you.
