Find your Perfect Holiday in Devon

23 tours from £159pp


It’s easy to understand why Devon remains one of the country's most popular regions for visitors. Packed with history and heritage, rugged coastlines and delightful towns and villages, it’s sure to leave you wanting more. Its renowned food and drink scene, including North Devon’s fresh seafood and, of course, a classic cream tea, are reasons to visit alone!

On the north coast, you can enjoy award-winning beaches such as Woolacombe, popular resort towns including Ilfracombe and Lynton, traditional villages that dot its rolling countryside, and a range of stunning National Trust sites.

In South Devon, you can stay on the English Riviera, the birthplace of murder-mystery novelist Agatha Christie, and take in sandy beaches such as Exmouth and bustling towns and cities, including Torquay and Plymouth.

Whatever you’re looking for from your Devon coach holiday or self-drive break, find it with Shearings.

Devon Highlights

Clovelly

A village like no other, Clovelly is taken straight out of a picture book and is a must-see on any Devon holiday. This ancient fishing village sits on a 400-foot cliffside and has no vehicles; locals and visitors alike must use the iconic cobbled streets to get around. At the foot of the village is the harbour and pebble beach, as well as the local pub serving up fresh-caught seafood!

RHS Rosemoor

This delightful garden, managed by the Royal Horticultural Society, stretches across the North Devon landscape and is filled with seasonal delights. All year round, guests are able to enjoy a selection of carefully curated gardens and areas, including The Rose Gardens, The Potager & Cottage Garden, The Fruit & Vegetable Garden, The South West & Devon Orchards and many more.

Torquay

A highlight on any South Devon tour, Torquay is a jewel on the English Riviera and has long been a popular holiday destination for those in the UK. Many of our coach trips to Devon stop at Torquay, and from the stunning Torre Abbey Sands to the popular Harbour and marina, those on board will find plenty to enjoy.
