Dartmoor and the Teign Valley
On the north east border of Dartmoor National Park with super access to the Park, Devon's capital city Exeter and The English Riviera. Both the East Devon AONB and South Devon AONB are within easy reach and Exmoor National Park is to the north so Dunsford a great location.

Most visitors come here to experience Dartmoor National Park and the stunning Teign Gorge and the beautiful Teign Valley which follows the border of the National Park to the area around Canonteign Falls before the River Teign flows east to Shaldon and Teignmouth.

The Teign Gorge and Castle Drogo
The Teign Gorge is awesome and provides some of the best views and walking in the Park. At the head of the gorge, you'll find Castle Drogo and Gardens, one of the most popular attractions in South West England. Close by is Chagford, a Dartmoor 'gateway town'.

Exeter and East Devon, The English Riviera and South Devon
In Exeter, we'd recommend visiting the cathedral. Further east, we think a yomp along the South West Coast Path, Start (or End) on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site is a must.

The English Riviera can be superb and the South Devon AONB has many glorious beaches and towns. Check out all our top 10 recommendation lists for things to do and places to visit in these areas.
