Events open in new window
Events in Devon in October, November and December, the last three months of the year have their own special appeal. October can be lovely with an Indian Summer, November has its fireworks and festivals. December we are looking forward to Christmas and the New Year. Shopaholics have a great time and the rest of us rush round and enjoy doing it. Well most of us!!

There are some delightful cottages around the county. Probably one near where you would love to stay.
Want a cute car? Large car? Small car? Whatever you need you will find it here. You will probably find your favourite car hire firm here and Car Rentals do not add a penny to their price for looking all over for you!
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.
Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!
Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
Virgin Trains is an excellent main line railway.
