Beer for Events in Devon


Devon is a beautiful county with ancient yet modern cities, intriguing towns and villages. Together with wonderful moorland and delightful rural countryside that really beg exploration, the county makes an enchanting place to live, work and visit.

With all that Devon has to offer there is certainly no shortage of things to do for all the family. Why not combine the events in Devon with a trip to Plymouth or Exeter, or one of those lovely places on the south or north coast.

There is that cycle way from north to south – tempting! 

So many cycle paths, so many walking trails, it might take a life time to do them all thoroughly.

Alternatively there are the moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor, Take care on the moors, make sure someone knows your arrival time. Those moors are incredible but they can catch you out as well. Plenty of Trails in the Dartmouth area. Good place to start is Okehampton

Why not visit the Ruby countryside in between. Typical Devon vistas.

Then there are the Riviera towns, Paignton, Torquay, Brixham with all the fun of the sand and the sea. Wonderful for the kids. Most grown ups too!!

Of course there is the South West Coastal Path, the longest in Britain. Part of it runs along Devon's south coast and after it leaves Cornwall it runs into the north coast of Devon. Bite size walks make great days out with stunning views.

Spoilt for choice in Devon!!!

Devon is quite a county
