beach and pub where dogs are welcome.

South Devon is one of the national
"family" of Areas of Outstanding
Natural Beauty. South Devon is
characterised by its peaceful
countryside, pretty villages, rolling
hills, colourful hedge banks, green
lanes, orchards and wooded valleys.
It is an ancient countryside with generations of human
activity etched into the grain of the landscape. Farmers
continue to manage the countryside as they have done
for thousands of years. The AONB supports an
outstanding diversity of habitats, wildlife and landform
features ranging from salt marshes, mud flats and
estuaries to hedges, oak woodlands and coastal
grasslands; and from sea arches, crags and cliffs to
dunes, shingle and reedbeds.
