As the days get shorter and the leaves turn golden brown, it’s time to accept that summer is over and autumn is in full swing... let's embrace it. 

Covered with blankets of oranges and reds, beaches to stroll across and pubs to cosy up in, is there anywhere better to spend some time as the days get shorter?

Here’s 5 reasons why Devon is worth visiting this autumn:

Autumnal colours

Autumn colour blazes across the South West this time of year. Picture a rich array of red, brown and orange leaves set against the backdrop of spectacular views that Devon has on offer. From forest to coastal walks, you’ll discover some of the best autumnal views in the UK. If you are a photographer then this is a great time of year with stunning light and rays to naturally enhance your images.

TIP: The best time to see autumn colours is from around mid October to mid November.

It might be a little chilly, but there’s nothing better than wrapping up and going for a brisk stroll along a quiet beach. In autumn, the crowds vanish, leaving peaceful stretches of pristine beach. What’s better than an autumnal picnic with a hot flask of tea? 

TIP: Many of Devon’s beaches welcome dogs in autumn.
