See Devon come to life in summer. With its beautiful coast glistening with turquoise waters lapping against golden sand beaches and lush countryside bathed in warm sunshine, it is truly a sight to behold. Get amongst the action as towns and villages bustle with activity or escape to a quiet hideaway from it all, the choice is yours for the perfect school summer holiday in Devon. Read more

Whether you are discovering Devon for the first, fifth or fiftieth time, there is always something magical about spending the summer here. Throw your towel over your shoulder and head to the beach with the family. Make sandcastles with the kids and then dive into the sea, before stretching out and drying off under warm sunshine. For country walks, pack a picnic and enjoy Devon's exquisite countryside as you tuck into a hamper packed with locally-sourced goodies, topped off with a refreshing swig of ginger ale. These are moments to be cherished forever.
