April events in Devon

Take a break this April and enjoy the spring sunshine in Devon. Whether you’re planning an early bank holiday weekend away or you’re taking the kids away for the Easter school holidays, there’s something for all visitors to the county.

Relax in the rolling hills of South Devon, meandering along by the rivers and creeks, exploring hidden beaches on the shores of the south coast. Find a more cosmopolitan experience in Plymouth or Exeter, the heart of Devon. Take a dip in the sea on the north coast and try your hand at surfing now that the water is beginning to warm up. 


There’s plenty to keep all tastes and interests busy on your April holiday. Just take your pick from one of these wonderful events in Devon.

30th March to 15th April: Cadbury Egg hunt at Agatha Christie’s Greenway

30th March to 15th April: Coleton Fishacre Cadbury Easter egg hunt

30th March to 2nd April: Easter fair at South Devon Railway

13th to 14th April: Torquay Gin Festival

20th to 29th April: Dawlish walking festival


For added entertainment this school holiday, why not stay in a holiday let with a swimming pool? We have some beautiful options for both outdoor and indoor pools across Devon. You’ll be able to send off your youngsters to splash away whilst keeping a watchful eye from the poolside. Whatever the weather, you’ll always have something to do to keep energetic children busy all day long.


Make yourself at home in a Devon holiday cottage.

When on holiday with my family I always like to visit a market or car boot sale if I can, to find that elusive treasure from a different part of the world to take home.

It’s very tempting to belt out a rendition of something from ‘The Sound of Music’, but all I can manage is ‘Bailey wait for me!’ as she disappears through some brambles.
