The stunning county of Devon is a region blessed with beauty and is dotted with delightful little towns, quaint stone villages and eye-catching landscapes. Lush green rolling hills are intersected with bright fresh streams and wooded valleys; Devon is also home to the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor (which it shares with Somerset), two areas of outstanding natural beauty. Both parks have spectacular scenery that consist of bleak uplands and isolated moorland that stretch out towards a rugged coastline.

Nice to have, but.... Jun 17, 2007
Getting ready for our massive trip to Devon & Cornwall last fall, my wife & I bought just about every travel book on the subjects we could get our hands on. We had high hopes for this one. It details lots of little pubs and restaurants in the area, along with the "usual" sites that you'll find in every book. Bottom line- the pubs in here were too rich for our blood- we are more into the sawdust and woodsmoke 'locals only' kind of place, not the wealthy Londoner on holiday kind of place. But, if that's your cup of tea, this book provides reasonable detail and a fair amount of information. I'd recommend, however, Lonely Planet, for anyone with a reasonable budget. And by reasonable, I mean less than $80 for supper.
