Places in the UK – Devon

There are many wonderful parts to Devon – it’s a great place to move to if you’re new to the UK.

It is a charming county in the southwest of England and it really does have it all, from stunning seaside towns boasting the best coast views, to quaint villages surrounded by rolling hills. You’re in for a treat if you’re considering Devon as your new UK home!

In this blog, we’ll share a little about why Devon is an ideal county to live in:


One of the best ways to get around Devon is its extensive public transport network, made up of buses, trains and coaches. Taking public transport will lower your carbon footprint and you will have the chance to really take in those idyllic views, with trains being a particularly scenic way to explore this beautiful county and beyond. If you are planning to drive, you will need to make sure you know where to find the region’s many car parks, as well as the parking costs and restrictions that might apply. More information on parking in Devon can be found here.

Restaurants and bars to try

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in Devon – the possibilities are endless! How about tasty seafood at The Oyster Shack in Bigbury, or the  Seahorse Restaurant in Dartmouth, which serves top-notch Italian food? Or if you want a lively, fun place to enjoy a drink, you can head down to Soho Cocktail Bar in Torquay!

Family days out in Devon

Big fun for the whole family certainly awaits in Devon. Arriving in to the UK with a young family might seem daunting, but rest assured they’ll be lots to get your teeth into once you’re all settled and ready to explore. Devon is one of the top family destinations here in the UK – you’ve got everything from Watermouth Family Theme Park & Castle and Exmoor Zoo in Barnstaple, to Quince Honey Farm in South Molton and Buckfast Abbey, Buckfastleigh.


Devon has two national parks – Dartmoor and Exmoor – both considered to be two of the most beautiful in the UK.  In them, you might be lucky enough to spot some wild ponies! There is an abundance of wildlife in both the parks for you, your family and your friends to enjoy. A lot of the parks in Devon of course have a great variety of play areas for children and top spots for dog walking.
