It's amazing what one county has to offer, with its rolling green hills, stunning beaches and quaint villages Devon is a goldmine of natural beauty just waiting to be explored. Devon offers Britain at its most lush and charming through to its most bleak and impressive. The stark uplands of Dartmoor are in easy reach of the sunny delights of the southern coast, and even the odd palm tree. Resorts like Torquay offer a retro feel, while the more historic Dartmouth is rather quietly charming. The north coast and its Atlantic rollers cater to the new surfing passion, particularly around Croyde Bay. Elsewhere is some of the prettiest countryside you could hope to see. Stroll it, ride it (by bike or horse), even walk it with a llama in tow...Footprint's brand new guide to Devon with Kids covers all these options and more, ensuring you will get the most from your Devonshire break.

Kate Calvert first started travelling aged two, when she was taken to spend the summer in Italy. She has kept it up ever since, and after an early round the world trip, started writing about her travels for both trade and consumer publications. Having children has not stopped her, and her two offspring have visited all the world's continents and are keen to keep going. However, they are as happy trying to surf the North Sea or exploring the Roman Wall as walking the Pyrenean foothills, or testing dim sum in Hong Kong. Drawing on the experience of those family outings, Kate founded the UK-based family travel web site family-travel.co.uk.
