Top UK Honeymoon Destinations: #3 Devon Honeymoon

Many newlywed couples over the past few years have been recognising the outstanding beauty of the UK and realising the benefits of having a honeymoon in the UK, especially in the post-covid era, which has led to a really positive increase in both luxury and smaller budget bookings. One of the few new locations that are becoming increasingly popular is a Devon honeymoon.

A Devon Honeymoon

A Devon honeymoon, with its amazing mixture of stunning coastline and breathtaking national parks, there’s something to do for every couple. It is one of the reasons why so many more couples are seeking out the perfect honeymoon in Devon.

Where To Stay In Devon

There are lots of beautiful places to stay in Devon, depending on what type of activities you would like to do on your honeymoon.

  1. Woolacombe

As Devon offers amazing coastline views, there’s the option of choosing to honeymoon in the beautifully romantic and quieter region of Woolacombe. With the main vibe being very much geared towards those who appreciate the beach, surfing and luxury camping, this is the ideal spot for a remote getaway for just the two of you.

  1. Ilfracombe

If a more activity-based honeymoon is something you’re looking for, staying in places such as Ilfracombe or Westward Ho! can offer couples the chance of taking part in Gold, Amusement Parks and risky cliff walks.

Honeymoon Activities In Devon

The beauty of honeymooning in Devon is that there genuinely is something for every budget, largely due to having such differing landscapes and the activities that come with having both a sea and inland view and we’ve listed a few potential honeymoon activities for you to consider:

  • Take a boat up the River Dart
  • Go Sea-Kayaking
  • Visit the White Lady gorge
  • Take a tour around Powderham Castle
  • Horse Ride across the Moor

It doesn’t get much more romantic than an evening stargazing in Dartmoor National Park, where the milky way is visible for a large portion of the year and that’s exactly what any lucky couple who honeymoons in Devon can experience. There’s also the opportunity to have a hot air balloon trip at either dawn or dusk to really take in the immense beauty of the place.

If nature isn’t your idea of fun, there’s always the more luxurious honeymoon activities in Devon, such as visiting any number of the stately homes in the area and having a private afternoon tea experience while you’re there.

Dining Ideas In Devon

It should be no surprise that Devon has its fair share of highly rated restaurants, which range from very reasonably priced options, to the much more high end establishments:

  • Biffen’s Kitchen, Croyde
  • The Blue Hut, Teignmouth
  • Number 8, Bideford
  • Saveur, Exmouth
  • Rodean Restaurant, Kenton

We can’t talk about dining in Devon without throwing in the old favourite of having amazing locally sourced fish and chips whilst walking along the beach. Devon benefits from having the fresh catch of the day in most of its fish and chip shops, so there’s really something to be said for a more budget friendly dining option while taking in the fresh sea air.
