Book Description

15 Jun 2008 Best of Britain
Many Brits are discovering the joys of holidaying on home soil, and Devon offers the best of Britain in one county. The council is also championing sustainable tourism to combat global warming and there are more green businesses and organic food producers here than anywhere in the UK. This unique guide is a valuable source of local information, to help visitors get the most out of the area in the time you have; be it a two-week holiday, short break or long weekend. Throughout the book, local people give their recommendations on where to find the best fish and chips, bike ride or secret path to a spectacular view, uncovering the Best of Britain. This guide includes practical information on a range of accommodation, the best places to eat, local festivals, events and activities as well as informing readers about the history, geology and culture of the area, with a ‘local heroes’ section of famous residents past and present. Informative maps are found throughout the book, including walking and climbing routes and children’s activities in the area. The book focuses on what makes this part of the south of England so special: from rolling countryside, picturesque villages with thatched cottages and majestic rivers such as the Torridge and Exe, to attractive fishing villages, thriving port towns and stunning beaches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy guidebook 14 July 2008
Just back from Devon and found this guidebook really useful - nice up to date information, clearly presented that took us off the tourist highway. If only it could have improved the weather as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Read into God's County 23 Jun 2008
As a 'Devonian' myself, I felt this book illustrates a true and accurate reflection on Devon and it's surrounding areas. The attention to detail was outstanding and a true gem for someone not only wanting to learn about 'Devon', but to unearth the hidden, exiting places most of us dont go to.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST BOOK ON FOR VISITING DEVON 26 July 2012
Verified Purchase
This book is great and the best guide book to Devon I have ever had, It tells you of great places to visit what to do once you get there and if the weather is good + what to do and where to go if the weather is bad especially if you have children and places of interest to visit. I cannot praise this book highly enough. The details in it are clear and very easy to undersand and very helpful. Do not go to Devon without it
