You might be tempted to describe this part of the county as ‘secret Devon’. It is characterised by family farms, gentle pastures, rivers and woodlands – a rich tapestry of fields, high hedges and country lanes, it is often overlooked as tourists rush past on the motorway looking for more drama.
However within minutes of leaving the M5 at J27 or J28 you can be in fabulous peaceful countryside with clusters of villages, with pretty, thatched cottages and excellent pubs. Here you can escape from the hustle and bustle of a busy life, but, deceptively, you are never far from an intriguing market town or even the vibrant city of Exeter. If you like to mix relaxation and a slower pace of life with culture and heritage look no further
