The large County of Devon, in South West England, UK, boasts two distinct popular coastlines on the English Channel and Bristol Channel. It is a popular tourist destination containing many fine establishments offering quality and affordable accommodation.
The county's two land borders are shared with Cornwall to the west and Dorset and Somerset to the east. The location of Devon and abundant tourist attractions make this county a very popular destination for its dynamic coastline, mild climate and inland attractions.
The port city of Plymouth and Torbay resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham contain many fine establisments offering bed and breakfast accommodation and attract many tourists for coastline activities and leisure pursuits. The designation of Dartmoor and Exmoor as National Parks has added to Devon’s wide appeal as an excellent tourist destination. Tourism now replaces the traditional economies of tin and copper mining, an economic source of development in the county since the middle ages.
The main city of Devon, Exeter, connects all the major towns and boasts a modern lively city culture but it is the coastline towns and seaside resorts that traditionally give Devon its universal appeal. The national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are also home to a wide variety of wildlife and birds and the Exmoor sandstone and dramatic and diverse landscapes of Devon define the prehistoric geology of this County.
Given the mild climate, warm beaches, palm trees and more recently olive growing, have all made Devon a unique and popular area of England. Tourism here is well established as a result, offering everything from short, weekend breaks to longer seasonal holidays.
