5 romantic things to do in Devon

If you are planning a couples’ getaway then Devon is the perfect destination to relax and enjoy some well deserved time together. Here are some romanic things to do in Devon that will make your break truly special.

Book a romanic cottage in Devon

Of course, top of our list of romantic things to do in Devon is to book a special place to stay where you can spend quality time with your loved one. Take a look at our collection of luxury cottages nestled in the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the River Dart and in the historic town of Dartmouth.

We can offer you the perfect base for a couples getaway, whether you want to get out and explore nature or snuggle up in your cottage with a log burner or open fire.

Take a look at our accommodation for romanic places to stay in-between Dartmouth and Totnes.

A romantic beach walk

South Devon’s beaches are the perfect place for a romantic walk under the stars or sun. And there’s always a cosy pub or cafe close by where you can warm up with a hot chocolate or something stronger. Many cafes and restaurants are also dog-friendly if you have bought your pooch with you.

Take a boat trip

Sit back and appreciate the romance of the Dart Valley from the comfort of a paddle steamer or river boat cruise. You’ll also find vessels of varying sizes for private hire along the River Dart. Some even offer dining experiences onboard, making your voyage an extra special date.

Stroll around South Devon’s prettiest towns

From cobbled streets to historic battlements and half timber houses, South Devon has some incredibly pretty towns for you to wander around hand in hand.

Enjoy the markets and motte and bailey castle of Totnes, the Tudor heritage of Dartmouth, and the seafaring charm of Salcombe, to name but a few.

Dinner with a view

If you can tear your eyes off each other, there’s plenty of places to eat in Devon with amazing views.

Our favourites include the luxurious Dart Marina in Dartmouth, Gara Rock which is tucked away in East Portlemouth, and for somewhere totally unique, there’s The Lobster Pod Bistro in Hope Cove.

So those are just a few of the romantic things to do in Devon. If you are looking for more inspiration for your Devon cottage holiday, we have plenty for you.
