Looking for the best Devon activities, attractions and places to see? There are so many great activities and days out in Devon, one visit simply isn’t enough. Visitors of all tastes are spoilt for choice, but below are just a few of the best attractions and days out in Devon not too far away. The lodges also have plenty of leaflets and brochures to inspire you.
Our holiday lodges in Devon are located on the edge of three beautiful fishing lakes. Well stocked with carp, roach, rudd, perch and bream, as well as a few surprises, these offer great coarse fishing for beginner and expert alike. Fishing is excellent value at £6 per day or £4 for half a day.
There are plenty of opportunities in the surrounding area to occupy even the most adventurous visitor, whether it’s fishing, walking, cycling, rambling, golf, horse-riding or sight-seeing. Dartmoor offers wild scenery and outdoor pursuits; Exeter has rich history, culture and shopping, while Torbay, Dawlish and other resorts provide pretty beaches within a short drive. Whether you want fun and activity or pure relaxation, you’ll love it here.
The lakes are surrounded by a variety of established trees and vegetation, creating a haven for many species of plants, birds and wildlife (look out for the local kingfisher!). It is a delightful place to relax and refresh for all visitors. It can be hard to believe you are just three miles from Exeter.
