Welcome to Discover South Devon, the first of our new E-Magazine publications, featuring some great articles and points of interest which we want to share with you.

The area provides a stunning array of beautiful scenery, across the vast expanse of Dartmoor, the patchwork countryside, with its quaint villages, through to the coastline with its coves and sandy beaches.

Some of our Nation’s most notable history is linked to South Devon, including the Crusades, the 100 years’ War, the sailing of the Pilgrim Fathers aboard the Mayflower to the new world, Thomas Newcomen, the Dartmouth born inventor of the first steam engine which heralded the Industrial Revolution.

In recent history, South Devon was one of several D-Day practice areas for the D-Day landings undertaken along the South Devon coastline, which most resembled the French coastal areas of Normandy, and is home to Dartmouth’s Britannia Royal Naval College, where a young Princess Elizabeth first met the Duke of Edinburgh in 1939.

We are fortunate to live and work in this beautiful part of the Southwest and we have great pleasure in sharing some of our discoveries with you and hope you will enjoy reading our articles which we believe showcase just how special South Devon is.

Discover South Devon will be available twice a year, together with two additional supplements:

  • Autumn & Winter Edition (September to February) & Christmas Supplement (November to December)
  •  Spring & Summer Edition (March to August) & New Year Supplement (January to February)
