Lower Knapp Farm is a wonderfully peaceful holiday retreat - a farm which has been imaginatively converted to holiday use as cottages and apartments. It is situated in the delightful Roncombe Valley, two miles from Sidbury, a picturesque East Devon village of thatched cottages. The elegant Victorian seaside resort of Sidmouth is five miles away and the busy market town of Honiton, famous for its antique shops, is five miles to the north.
Here you are in an ideal location to discover Devon, a county as varied as it is verdant. Its huge tracts of fertile farmland are the source for its famous clotted cream and equally celebrated cider. Dartmoor National Park is both magnificent and mysterious; and Devon's golden sandy beaches are blessed by more than their share of sunshine. Overlooked by most holidaymakers, East Devon is a particularly charming area - a land of rolling, wooded hills and valleys; of spectacular coastlines, bustling market towns and quaint, welcoming villages.
Explore Dartmoor National Park
It would be a crime to stay in Devon and not see at least some of Dartmoor National Park. It's the largest and wildest area of open country in southern England, and there's so much to see and do here.
History lovers will enjoy discovering the old tombs, standing stones and ruins of Hountor, a medieval village which dates back to the 14th century. If it's walking you adore, there are 450 miles of public pathways, and routes to suit all abilities.
Alternatively, you could try your hand at birdwatching, geocaching, climbing, kayaking, letterboxing, cycling, horse-riding and so much more.
Enjoy 95 miles of stunning coastline
The Jurassic Coast in East Devon covers 95 miles of coastline, stretching all the way to Dorset. You won't have time to explore it all, but it's well worth a visit, as not only is it a beautiful place to relax, the rocks here record 185 million years of history!
You can access the Jurassic Coast by the South West Coast Path Trail or take a boat trip from one of the local coastal towns.
Treat yourself to a traditional cream tea
You can't enjoy a holiday in Devon without sampling one of the naughtiest and most indulgent treats there is – a cream tea. It consists of two scones, strawberry jam, Devon clotted cream and a pot of tea to wash it all down with. Just remember to put the jam on top, otherwise you may upset the locals!
Admire Exeter's architecture
Exeter is brimming with history, but the first attraction you should visit is the Cathedral. You won't be able to miss it – its two towers dominate the skyline, and have done since 1114AD.
We also recommend walking along the medieval aqueducts which run under the city centre and date back to the 14th century.
Go shopping in Honiton
Collectors of antiques and pottery will definitely want to go shopping in Honiton. The high street is home to a variety of specialist dealers selling antiques and traditional crafts. That's because Honiton has a history in glove making, pottery and lace. In fact, the local museum contains an amazing collection of lace.
There's plenty of traditional high street shops in Honiton too, of course.
