North Devon holidays for adults

    North Devon isn’t just perfect for families – it is packed with things to do for adults too. Here’s just a few of our favourites where ‘adults only’ is just what you need!



    There are a huge number of watersports available to enjoy when you’re in North Devon. You can read our blog on experiencing North Devon on water to find out more.

    National Trust

    If you’re into walking around stately homes and gardens then a visit to one or many of the National Trusts in North Devon is worth an afternoon whiling away the time. Whether you choose Arlington Court or a trip a bit further south to Knightshayes there are many National Trust areas in North Devon.

    Theme Parks

    For the adrenaline junkies, North Devon is home to two great theme parks The Milky Way and The BIG Sheep. OK, we have to come clean they are family-friendly so don’t expect Alton Towers or Thorpe Park but with both having a rollercoaster, one having a waterpark and the other having Sheep Racing (it’s a lot more fun than it sounds!!) there’s still plenty of things to do at each park.

    Local breweries

    The South West is famous for its cider, but did you know we also have our own gin, craft beers and a number of other home-brewed beverages? There are a number of breweries in North Devon – most of which you can visit to see their process and purchase drinks. See the whole CAMRA list here.


    Coastal Walking

    For those that enjoy the great outdoors, nothing can beat North Devon. With the South West Coast Path offering 90 miles to enjoy and the Tarka Trail crossing the countryside you have loads of accessible walking options right on the doorstep.

    Retail therapy

    A holiday wouldn’t be complete without a little bit of retail therapy. Whether you want a few local souvenirs, or feel like splashing out on some luxury items there’s something for everyone in the local towns and villages. If you’re really in need of a full day’s shopping whilst visiting the area, the city of Exeter is just an hour by car or train.
