A Travel Guide to Devon
Devon lies on the southern peninsula of England, bringing sunlight and warmth for the summer months. Escape from the cities and into a rural setting housing beautiful cottages and an overall relaxing sensation. The southern part of the island enjoys warmth and a light breeze during the summer months and draws in tourists from around the world.
At ColetonFishacre the National Trust has bestowed a lavish twenty-four acre area housing many different garden styles. There are plant species from the Mediterranean, South Africa, New Zealand, as well as native plants to England. The tranquil ponds that surround the plants are equally as calming and allow the visitor to relax. The sea, offering additional views, backs the gardens.
A tourist hotspot, Woolacombe beach draws many crowds during the summer months. The beautiful white sand with the clear water invites swimmers and surfers alike. Dogs are more than welcome on certain quieter areas of the beach.
The Yaraks Birds Of Prey Falconry Centre is another great tourist attraction were you can witness beautiful falcons soar through the air. Not only are the birds giving a display, but the handlers also cater for hands on experiences with the birds as well. The Handlers are incredibly knowledgeable about the birds and treat them more as family rather than as animals. There are over fifty birds at the Falconry Centre including Owls, Hawks, Eagles and of course, Falcons.
There is a wide variety of self catering holiday accommodation in Devon ranging from country cottages set in their own grounds to seaside apartments with views over the water.
