Ilfracombe with its magnificent cliffs is on the North Dorset Coast. This town is easily accessible by road and well worth a visit. Hilly perhaps, but scenic and it is not surprising it is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you are a wild life lover then this is a haven.

Babbacombe is ideal for a holiday if you want peace and quiet but also the busy hotspots. The town is close to Torquay so it is the best of two worlds. The town sits high above the beach, but there is a cliff railway down which is fun for kids of all ages. Babbacombe is also famous for its Model Village.

Teignmouth is on the northern side of the Teign Estuary. There is a ferry across the estuary to Shaldon on the southern bank. Teignmouth is the end or the start of The Templer Way an 18 mile footpath to Haytor. Whether one wants a beach or a quay Teignmouth is ideal. 

Paignton is on the southern coast and part of the English Riviera and all that has to offer - Blue Flag beaches, harbour, Zoo and the steam railway to name only a few! 

Dartmoor that wild, wonderful, mysterious stretch of moor that dominates that part of the county. Dartmoor ponies, Drake's Drum and Uncle Tom Cobbley of Widdicombe Fair fame. The fair still exists! there are fascinating walking trails across the moor, but care is needed as the weather can change quickly. See also Walking Trails in Devon for a few ideas.

Barnstaple, a thousand years of history on the banks of the River Taw in North Devon. Some good boutique shops and there is a Pannier Market which opens six days a week. 

Bovey Tracey- Antiques Roadshow devotees will have heard of Bovey Tracey pottery, the House of Marbles is located on the site of that pottery. Riverside Mill is a contemporary crafts gallery.

Shaldon on the Teign in South Devon is famous for its up market beach huts. Lovely safe beach. Why not try the local wine. Teignmouth to Shaldon Ferry operates every day except Christmas Day and New Year's Day. 

Bideford, a town in North Devon on on the River Torrdige. There are ferries rides along the river on summer evenings. Take a stroll along the quay. There is a ferry to Lundy Island.

Why not travel by Coach

If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.
