Surrounding Areas

The surrounding area of Dartmoor, South Devon and South East Cornwall are often overlooked by visitors to Plymouth and offer an extraordinary range of natural attractions and popular visitor centres. Once again this is just a glimpse of what you can experience with a little planning.  Its outstanding location between the moors and the sea makes it the perfect base for touring and discovering the gems of East Cornwall and South West Devon.

The countryside around Plymouth provides some of the finest scenery in the country. The mellow farmland of Devon and Cornwall meet in the Tamar Valley designated an Area of Outstanding natural Beauty with its superb river creeks and estuaries and home to Morwellham Quay the Victorian Copper Port recently featured as the BBC's Edwardian Farm.

Only a few miles from the city is Dartmoor, one of the finest and largest National parks in Britain and the largest great wilderness in Southern England. The landscape is unique with its high heather covered moors, ancient standing stones, hut circles and stone clapper bridges. You can walk, cycle or ride on horseback to enjoy this extraordinary area at its best.

The coastline to either side of Plymouth into Devon and Cornwall is peppered with some of the country’s most envied beaches and romantic hidden coves.
