Sunset in south DevonHoliday in the South Hams, Devon

The South Hams of South Devon is an area of exceptional beauty and contrast with river estuaries, rolling hills and thatched cottages surrounding the lovely old towns of Dartmouth, Totnes, Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Modbury and Ivybridge and pretty villages that abound in the South Hams district of South Devon.

This most southerly point of Devon is naturally protected from the Atlantic.  The South Hams of South Devon enjoys one of the mildest climates in the whole of Britain.  The name "Hamme" is an old English word meaning enclosed or sheltered place.  With Spring arriving early, long summers, warm autumns and mild winters, you can safely choose to visit at any time of year.

Beautiful Beaches

South Devon's great sweep of flat golden sands such as Bigbury and Thurlestone, or a sheltered cove like Hallsands or Hope Cove? Perhaps you would prefer spectacular Slapton Sands, backed by the extraordinary freshwater lagoon? Or the wooded suntrap of Blackpool Sands and its extensive facilities? Maybe Wembury, with it's excellent marine interpretation centre and rock pool rambles. What would be your first choice when unwinding on your holidays in South Devon?
