A romantic getaway doesn’t always have to be about faraway exotic locations, with expensive hotel rooms. A caravan holiday can be just as romantic, cosy and a memorable, private break, without breaking the budget.
The money you will save by renting a caravan for a long weekend or a mid-week break can always be used to buy other special luxuries to add to the romantic experience. Perhaps a bouquet of roses, a bottle of champagne or a movie night with a box of luxury chocolates.
From watching the sun go down from your location in one of the many hidden coves, to dining in a romantic restaurant, you will discover loads to enjoy as a couple in this stunning location. However, Devon isn’t just about the Area of Outstanding Beauty, it also offers so much more.
River of Love
If your idea of romance is sailing down the river with your loved one, then take a ride on the Picnic Boa down the River Dart. Lie back and relax, enjoying the stunning river views, while enjoying a delicious cream tea or a picnic with your love. Keep an eye out for wildlife as you cruise along the river and then take a tour of the village of Dittisham after your meal. Your romantic cruise will include a bottle of champagne. Should the weather be a little chilly, the heaters and overhead canopy will keep you warm.
Coastal Walking Paths
There are many pleasant walking routes around Devon to explore with stunning scenery, views from the cliff-tops and woodland walks. Croyde Bay in North Devon is spectacular with golden sand dunes and crashing waves. You can always search out a cosy pub for a romantic meal after your walk. Bigbury has a sandy beach with views stretching out over to Burgh Island. At low tide you can ramble over to the Island for a visit.
Romance of Authors
Devon has provided the background for a host of literary authors through past centuries. They have taken their inspiration from their surroundings. Picture the setting of Lorna Doone in her novel, A Romance of Exmoor, writing about the babbling waters, ancient woodlands and beautiful heathland locations. Rudyard Kipling lived at Rock House in Rockhouse Lane, Torquay. The Poet Laureate Ted Hughes moved to North Devon in 1961. And who can forget Kingsley’s Westward Ho!
