Stretching around the coast line from the edges of Plymouth and Brixham up to the border of Dartmoor National Park, it comprises a total area of 342 square miles. With a history dating back to Anglo-Saxon times and a strong naval feel, the area is a huge draw for visitors eager to sample the sea air, the many attractions and the walking environment on offer.

We used the hot tub and barbeque every evening a real treat and the Blagdon Inn was good. Can't comment on gym or pool as we ran out of time to use facilities. One minor negative the main bedroom bathroom door was hard to close due to the lovely plush carpet! Couldn't ask for more had a great break and would return!

Brixham itself was lovely and had great fish and chips down at the harbour, also a great base which to travel and see other parts of beautiful Devon.
