Living in Devon

With two stunning coastlines, two magnificent national parks and two historic cities, Devon offers a quality of life few other English counties can match. Add in a World Heritage Site coastline, charming market towns, picture-postcard villages and outstanding countryside and you can see why Devon has such appeal!

With hundreds of miles of coastline, 5,000 km of footpaths and over 250 km of off-road cycle paths, Devon’s outdoor lifestyle is its biggest draw. Where else can you finish your shift and be on a surfboard or walking on wide, open moorland within half an hour? But there’s plenty more on offer here. For you and for your family.

Devon is rightly proud of the farmers and producers who make the South West one of the best regions in the UK to enjoy locally produced food and drink. Your taste buds will find plenty to savour here - from taster menus at high-end restaurants to simple pleasures enjoyed at your local farmers’ market or fish ’n’ chips at the seaside.

Whether you fancy surfing or paddle boarding, cycling or climbing, fine dining or hearty pub fare, the county really does have it all. Never let it be said, it’s all work and no play. Not here in Devon.
