Stunning Devon has a long history with a wide-ranging landscape that boasts lots of lively towns packed with character. Whilst there are plenty of places that could be mentioned, here are three of the best locations that definitely deserve a visit:

Dittisham

Some say this is Devon’s prettiest village and it’s not difficult to see why. Sitting on the banks of the River Dart, the river views alone are stunning but it’s the changing light on the water that really draws people. The countryside is beautiful with many walks available through this unspoilt location. A ferry carries passengers to nearby Dartmouth and across to Greenway Quay for those who wish to see Agatha Christie’s former holiday home.
