From the moors of Dartmoor to the white sands of Bantham, Devon has it all for romantics wanting to getaway together.
Brave an exciting and invigorating cold water dip in the (following cold water swimming safety advice of course), dance across the hot sands of one of the county’s main South Coast beaches, walk the hundreds of miles of rugged National Trust coastal paths, then retire glowing with outdoor warmth to a cosy luxury cottage for two.
Devon is renowned for its abundance of locally sourced, seasonal produce which is turned into culinary delights by the passionate chefs that work in restaurants across the county. There’s no end of special places to share a romantic meal together, from the refined fish dishes of The Oyster Shack at Bigbury-on-Sea, only accessible on the right tide, to The Riverford Field kitchen for the very best communal organic food. You can find your own special place to return to again and again.
Without doubt Dartmoor is one of the most romantic places to visit in Devon. From amazing views of heather-rich moorlands and ancient wooded valleys to the magnificent river Dart, the country park has over 350 square kilometres to explore. Walk hand-in-hand on one of the many romantic trails, spotting wildlife or enjoying peaceful isolation and quiet calm.
For a picture-perfect harbour visit, the village of Clovelly is perhaps the UK’s most romantic. An historic and quaint fishing village clinging to a steep cliff face in North Devon, a walk down the main street of Clovelly on a summer’s day is something every couple should do. At the bottom of the hill, you’ll find the beautiful harbour with a handful of boats and a lovely fisherman’s pub to grab a drink, sit out and take in the romance of the sea. Book a boat trip to spot dolphins or porpoise in the bay or enjoy a long afternoon meal sharing an exquisite lobster together.
Whatever romantic jaunts you get up to, we have a luxury cottage for your romantic getaway in Devon. Choose a private cottage with a hot tub, swimming pool, sauna or seaview and share the romance of Devon together in cosy, luxurious comfort.
