Along with its neighbor Cornwall, Devon seems to be the one region of the UK seemingly designed to appeal to tourists and holidaymakers. Quite apart from the (ever so slightly) Mediterranean climate, Devon has some of Europe's best coastline (for sheer variety) and a magnificent landscape of rolling farmland and fields, steep craggy hills, wild and awe-inspiring moorland as well as the obligatory white sandy beaches and waves made for surfing.
In addition it offers history buffs a wealth of sites from country houses and gardens to dramatic castles and from stately homes to ancient monuments.
Because the county has been inhabited since Paleolithic times there are numerous excavated sites worth visiting. In addition there are stone circles dating back to Celtic times (when the area was known as Dumnonia) and the city of Exeter features a seemingly never-ending supply of reminders of its importance during the Roman occupation.
Towns such as Tavistock and Totnes are also packed with historical sites and there are buildings that have been there since before the Norman Conquest. Also worth a visit are Buckland Abbey (home of Sir Francis Drake) and Buckfast Abbey where monks have been producing both stained glass and tonic wine for hundreds of years.
Of course most people head to Devon for the scenery, to visit the never ending supply of breathtaking views and vistas; from Devon's section of England's only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Jurassic Coast, to miles upon miles of rolling hills, upland forests and rugged stone as well as endless beautiful and rustic farmland.
Most exhilarating of all is Dartmoor National Park, covering 370 square miles and offering some of the most spectacular terrain in the UK if not Europe. From wild moorland to wild ponies, this is a special and unspoiled place and somewhere everyone should visit at least once in their lives.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
The Impossible Challenge of Affordability
No wonder the younger generation are getting more and more frustrated with money - new research has revealed that even with a 10% deposit, 25-34 year olds are struggling to afford even the CHEAPEST houses on the market. Is there a solution to the 'impossible challenge'?
