Those on short breaks can enjoy golf, walking, fishing, bird watching, horse riding, cycling, surfing, kayaking, zorbing, and much more. After which you’ll have worked up both an appetite and a thirst, ready to tuck into a traditional Devon cream tea, sample some scrumpy cider or local ale, or try one of the 30 different varieties of cheese on offer.
