East Devon is a beautiful part of the world. If you’re looking for things to do in East Devon you have a lot of choices. It features coastlines, countryside, villages, market towns, and the city of Exeter.

I’ve recently moved to East Devon and through these blog posts, I’ll be sharing my travels around the region. I’ll highlight what is great about the area so you too can enjoy what is on my doorstep.

There’s a section of the South West Coastal Path from Exmouth to Lyme Regis and the majority of the area is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Jurassic Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage site. East Devon beauty spots are some of the best in the world.

It’s a place with an abundant amount to do whatever time of the year you visit. If you’re after outdoor pursuits there are coastal and country walks, cycle rides, numerous water sports, such as paddle boarding and kayaking. Not forgetting the chance to soak up the natural world via forests, nature reserves, and animal parks.
