South Pool is an idyllic, creekside village, surrounded by stunning countryside, offering wonderful opportunities to explore South Devon by foot, car or water. With a useful pontoon, water enthusiasts can leisurely paddleboard or kayak when the tide is in. Or, why not hire a small boat to enjoy a scenic boat ride to Salcombe, where you may even spot seals bobbing along the estuary! On cooler days, the traditional village pub, The Milbrook Inn, is perfect for indulging in a hearty feast. Visit neighbouring chocolate box towns and villages, or long stretches of beach, by visiting Frogmore (well-known for its bakery), only a five-minute drive away, or the shingle beach at Torcross, no more than a 15-minute car journey.
Devon has quite a few claims to fame such as being the backdrop to many films, including; War Horse - starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, and directed by Steven Spielberg. Sense and Sensibility - starring Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant and Kate Winslet. The French Lieutenant's Woman - starring Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons. Edge Of Tomorrow: Live Die Repeat - starring Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt and Brendan Gleeson. So you may recognise a few of the locations from their appearances on the big screen.
Did you know that Agatha Christie, Reverend John Russell, Sir Francis Drake, and Sir Walter Raleigh all hailed from Devon? Agatha Christie went on to become a best-selling novelist, Reverend John Russell developed the Jack Russell Terrier, Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the world, and Sir Walter Raleigh became a famous explorer.
South Devon is home to over 20 miles of Torbay coastline which is otherwise known as the 'English Riviera'. Brixton, Paignton and Torquay are the three Riviera towns and are great places to enjoy a day at the seaside. So if you fancy some fresh sea air and picturesque views then visit the 'English Riviera'.
The Dartmoor National Park can be found in Devon and offers visitors a dramatic moorland landscape, ancient woodland, rare wildlife and notable influences, such as the location for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes case 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'.
We hope you enjoy your break in Devon!
