Bicton Park Botanical Gardens - Budliegh Salterton 

One of the most beautiful of Britain's world renowned historic gardens, Bicton is a magical blend of 18th century tranquility and modern day facilities.

Set amidst the rolling hills of the Otter valley the magnificently landscaped grounds provide a kaleidoscope of colour throughout the seasons. Fragrant borders, manicured lawns, majestic woodlands, reflective lakes and rippling streams combine in a peaceful grandeur that has existed for almost 300 years.


Seaton Tramway Seaton/Colyton 

Seaton Tramway operates narrow gauge heritage trams between Seaton, Colyford and colyton in East Devon's glorious Axe Valley, traveling along side the river Axe estuary through two nature reserves and giving an unrivalled view of the abundant wadding bird life. The coastal resort of Seaton is now the gateway town to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whilst Colyton is described as "Devon' s Most Rebellious Town" for it's part in the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685.


Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site

The Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site is England's first natural World Heritage Site - it is known as The Jurassic Coast. It covers 95 miles of truly stunning coastline from East Devon to Dorset, with rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth's history. 

World Heritage status was achieved because of the site's unique insight into the Earth Sciences as it clearly depicts a geological ‘walk through time' spanning the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. 

World Heritage Sites are places of ‘outstanding universal value' selected by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation). 


Donkey Sanctuary - nr Sidmouth 

The Donkey Sanctuary is open 365 days a year from 9.00 until dusk. Admission and parking are free. We consider that being a charity dependent on the support of the public, visitors could be able to see our work free of charge.

Visitors are to spend as much time as they wish, meeting the donkeys in the main yard who adore the fuss and attention, taking strolls along our various field walks or ramble down to the sea, pausing at the Nature Centre and conservation area along the way.


Exeter City 

There is much to see in Exeter. Of course there is Exeter Cathedral with its unique twin towers, and the fascinating range of architectural styles surrounding the Cathedral Close. Much of the City Wall can still be seen. especially from the beautiful Rougemount Gardens, from where you can also see Exeter Castle. Also of interest is the Medieval Exe Bridge, the elegant Southernhay, the Guildhall, St Mary Steps Church and The House That Moved.

The Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery is a fascinating museum and should not be missed. Other places worth a visit include St Nicholas Priory, which is furnished as an Elizabethan merchant's house, the Underground Passages, and the Quay House Visitors Centre, which is probably the best place to begin a visit to Exeter.


The historic town of Honiton set in the heart of the beautiful Devon Countryside grew up as a coaching stop on the busy London to Exeter route and by the mid 19th Century there were some 24 coaching inns. That traditional hospitality continues today with the town offering visitors a warm and friendly welcome to its Antique Shops and Markets
