Devon

Description

County in southwestern England, next to Cornwall. The North Devon Coastline is very wild and offers dramatic walking. Take the South West Coast Path. The south coast is different but not less interesting. Just continue the South West Coast Path and once you leave Cornwall you enter Devon again. Two other assets for hikers are Dartmoor and Exmoor, vast expansions of wet moorland laying on a hard rockbed.
