Help and advice on buying property in Devon

Devon is large and diverse.  The famous ‘cream teas’ and fantastic food (including Michelin starred restaurants) welcome thousands of visitors each year to the South West. Devon is the second largest county, after Yorkshire in the UK, approximately 2500 square miles; the travel time from the northern most point at Ilfracombe on the Bristol Channel to East Prawle in the south on the English Channel would take about 3 hours, even though it is only 100 miles!

We ‘Devonians’ think nothing of travelling 50 miles for dinner!

Splitting it into areas is also a challenge, below I have highlighted those that are known in the property world.

These areas include:

  • North Devon with its rugged cliffs, open spaces, sparcely populated areas and World famous surfing beaches such as Croyde.
  • Mid Devon, which has lovely unspoilt countryside and great fishing along the River Exe and Taw Valley.
  • West Devon which incorporates Dartmoor National Park. The Teign Valley has great access to Exeter and Dartmoor.
  • Exeter City with all its attractions, the university, cathedral, super shopping and splendid houses.
  • East Devon where rolling hills meet the sea.
  • The South Hams where trendy Totnes is situated alongside the ever popular Salcombe, Devon’s  equivalent of Cornwall’s ‘Rock’ with families buying property there and getting together year after year for their family holidays.

Combine the rugged moors, fantastic landscape, our sailing and fishing heritage, super educational establishments, diverse population and businesses and you have a unique County that is hard to resist.


Because of the diverse nature of Devon it is not easy to sum up the type of property that is on offer. There is definitely something for everyone, whether you want a granite thatched house on Dartmoor to a ‘New England’ look house on the South Coast which much in between.
