Breath-taking coasts and beachesThe English Riviera is home to an amazing 22 miles of natural coastline, with coves, cliff tops and rockpools to wonder upon, along with a jaw-dropping 20 beaches to choose from – with 10 of these winning top industry awards. This stunning location draws thousands to its beauty each year, as it is a perfect destination for a summer holiday or a weekend getaway. In 2007, the English Riviera was designated UNESCO Global Geopark, which means that it is a globally recognised area of geological interest, with the UK home to only seven of 140 in the world, this makes it pretty special!
A jam-packed to-do list is guaranteedThe English Riviera is a playground for those who love outdoor adventures and sightseeing, with so many activities to experience and trips to tick off your list.
For activity lovers, kayaking, sailing, and paddleboarding is available year-round, as the mild climate in this region of Devon allows the sea to remain calm for tourists and locals to enjoy. Coasteering, wild swimming and scenic tours and day trips are also available throughout the year.
There are a range of prehistoric caves and walking trails along the coast, with a large selection of local accommodation to choose from after a busy day of excursions. Sweetcombe Cottage Holidays offer quaint, cosy accommodation, with the option of modern townhouses or beach chalets, and pet-friendly homes to let (should you prefer to bring your furry friend) throughout East Devon, available for a weekend or longer if you decide a week isn’t long enough!
