2.Burgh Island

A little tidal island next to Bigbury-On-Sea, famous for its magnificent art deco hotel and connection to Agatha Christie.

Location - The nicest part of the trip is getting to the island, which is just off Bigbury Beach. At low tide, you can walk across, but at high tide, you can only get there by sea tractor.
Reasons to visit - This is a terrific site to visit because of the imposing backdrop, the lovely beach with lots of water sports available, and the hotel or the neighbouring Pilchard Inn. If you extend your stay to an evening, you may also take in the most breathtaking sunsets.

3. Torquay's Cockington Village

One of the best places to stay in Torquay - the little village of Cockington feels worlds apart from the busy beaches and family resorts that make Torbay famous.

Location - Take the route inland to Cockington Village from the seafront in Torquay, which is less than a mile away.
Reasons to visit - This charming and distinctly English village is made up of thatched houses, winding streets, a manor house, a forge, a water mill, and a cricket field.

4. Jay's Grave

Jay's Grave, also known as Kitty Jay's Grave, is purportedly the final resting place of a suicide victim who is believed to have passed away in scandalous circumstances in the late eighteenth century.

Location - It is located at the entrance to a green lane that goes to Natsworthy, by the side of a little road around one mile (1.6 km) northwest of Hound Tor on Dartmoor.
Reasons to visit - It is now a well-known landmark on Dartmoor and the focus of numerous ghost stories and local mythology. Although no one acknowledges placing them there, fresh flowers are frequently placed on the Grave.

5. Wistmans Wood

As the gnarled branches and moss-covered boulders that make up these wild woods are discovered, it becomes evident why these woods are said to be haunted.

Location - The wood is located in Princetown, one mile from the Two Bridges Hotel.
Reasons to visit - The views of wild Devon are unmatched, and although the route isn't always simple to follow, the woods are utterly unique in their splendour.
