A Quick Guide to Holiday Spots in South-West England

South-West England is a magical place. It’s already a very popular holiday spot for brits and overseas holiday makers but if you need some more convincing to make it your holiday destination, we’ve done a bit of writing about it for you. We hope you’ve enjoyed our series of South West England posts over the last few weeks. But if you’ve missed it, here’s a quick summary for you to catch up with.


1. Bristol and Bath – We kicked off the South-West with these fantastic, lively and neighbouring locations that are great to visit as a pair. In order to help you maximise your time in Bristol and Bath, we gave you some great tips about places to stay, where to eat and activities to get up to while you’re over there. Of course while we want you to make the most of your short break, if you have to go back for another 1, 2 or 10 breaks, we completely understand.

2. Somerset – Oh Somerset, full of mystical, magical history, where kings of Wessex once stood and where King Arthur was supposedly laid to rest. And in more recent news, it’s also famous for cider and cheese. Somerset is fantastic for scenery, history, fun and product sampling (it’s essential to taste the cheese in Cheddar). Go on our virtual whistle stop tour of some brilliant cities, towns and villages, including Glastonbury, Weston-Super-Mare, Taunton and more.

3. Dorset – In this post we  detailed some fantastic Chocolate Hoteland unusual places to stay all across the county. From hotels in Lyme Regis, Bournemouth and Portland, to B&Bs in Weymouth, Caravan Parks in Swanage and Bridport and Self Catering in Dorchester. Whatever your tastes and budget, and whether you’re looking for coastal or inland there’s the perfect place for you. Why take days to plan your holiday in Dorset, when you can do it in minutes with our help?

4. Cornwall – Going on holiday in Cornwall? Want to have fun but don’t know where to start? We can help. Have a flick through our post giving you great tips on unforgettable places to visit in Cornwall. There’s tropical gardens, underground caverns and spectacular outdoor theatres, and of course the beautiful beaches go without saying. There’ so much more to do in Cornwall we couldn’t fit it all in one post so let this be a starting point.

5. Devon – Did you know that Devon was a foodie heaven? It is. Berry Head Hotel IMG_7152Our post takes you across the county from Plymouth, to Brixham and the outskirts of Exeter and the Dartmoor National Park to show you some mouth-watering places to eat, while you’re down in Devon. There’s posh nosh and simple good food, all fresh and locally sourced where possible. (Warning: Post may cause extreme food envy).

Our South-West guide is a virtual tour of some great places to stay, eat and visit while you’re visiting the magnificent South West of England. We hope you enjoy looking through our suggestions in each place but if you’re up for a bit of travelling, there’s no reason why you can’t blur the county lines in your visit. Morning tea in Devon and afternoon cheese in Somerset sounds pretty good after all.
