Spring in Devon

Devon in spring time is a magical place to be, not only are you surrounded with evidence of new life, like the new foals frolicking around Exmoor and Dartmoor and the lambs you'll find in fields all over the county,  it's the time that many of the region's top attractions start opening up for the year and there will likely be a host of opening offers for you to take advantage of. 

With an array of spring flowers to discover and a new range of fresh, local produce on the county's menus, there are plenty of reasons to visit Devon in spring.

Things to do in Spring

Like we said, many of Devon's top attractions will fully open in the spring time to coincide with the school holidays and Easter weekend. While there are loads of things to do in the winter, this is the time to visit if you want to be first in line to try a new ride at one of the region's theme parks or a new tour of a much loved attraction. 

Devon at Easter

Devon is a wonderful place to be over the Easter bank holiday - you'll find plenty of themed activities and events offering you everything from easter egg trails to lamb feeding and just about anything else you can think of. You might even get to meet the Easter bunny! 

Incredible places to stay 

This time of year is perfect for a farm stay, so why not take advantage of the amazing farm cottages and B&Bs you can find across Devon? You don't even need to sacrifice being by the sea, as several farms offering accommodation are near the coast! They're a perfect way to spend the Easter break as you'll not only be immersed in the spring flowers but you'll also have lots of cute baby animals around to remind you that this is the season for new starts. 

It's not all about farm stays, we know they aren't for everyone. Devon's hotels and B&Bs will be taking advantage of the new ingredients that will be emerging at this time of year meaning lots of tasty meal options for you to choose from. Alternatively, choose a self catering break and sample as much food and drink in the region's restaurants and cafés as you like!
