When it comes to planning a vacation for your family or friends picking the right location can be the difference between a great holiday and a not-so-good one.
Finding the right holiday home to stay in is essential. You want to make sure you’re in a good location near to all the amenities you need as well as all the attractions you want to see. You might be able to find an amazing holiday lodge to stay in but if it’s miles away from everything you want to see and do then it’s not a great location really.
Making sure you’re in a good location should be the number one priority for anyone booking holiday accommodation and if you’re planning a trip down to Devon there’s no better place to stay (in our opinion) than Hornbeam Country Park.
Hornbeam Country Park is in a great location on the Eastern edge of Devon. It has easy access to all the county has to offer and plenty of opportunities to venture out beyond its borders too.
If you’re planning a trip to the South West then we think Devon is a great county to explore. In this article we’ll share our reasons why along with why we think Hornbeam Country Park is the best place to stay if you want to see all Devon has to offer.
Why is Devon a great holiday destination
Sun, sea and sand. What more could you want? Devon is located in the South West of England and is blessed with sunny weather and a climate a bit more tropical than the rest of the UK.
The county has pristine beaches and blue waters along with historic cities like Exeter and Torquay. For hikers and ramblers the county boasts Dartmouth National park along with many protected areas of outstanding natural beauty on both its North and South coast.
Devon has something for everyone so whether you’re looking for a sunny beach holiday, an adventure packed sporting holiday or just a relaxing time walking through nature you’ll be guaranteed a good time in Devon.
What makes Hornbeam Country Park such a great location for exploring Devon?
When it comes to exploring Devon we think Hornbeam Country Park is perfectly placed to let you get the most out of the county.
Our holiday park is just a short car ride from the Southern Coast (around 30 minutes) so you can be out the door and in the sea before you know it. If you’re hankering for a beach holiday you can’t really get closer than that. You can relax on Branscombe beach or explore the seaside town of Seaton.
If walking and exploring the countryside is more your thing then you’re in luck. Hornbeam Country Park sits within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which means the park is surrounded by walks, hills and nature for you to enjoy. You can literally leave your lodge’s front door and be right in amongst the rolling hills and fields.
If one AONB isn’t enough for you then right next to the Blackhill AONB is East Devon AONB. That’s right, two AONB’s right next to each other. You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to lovely walks and hikes to go on. All from the comfort of your luxury lodge too.
Looking to head to a city whilst you’re in Devon? Then Hornbeam Country Park has you covered. Exeter is just a short drive away and the charming, historic city has loads for you to see and do. If you want to go to some amazing bars or try some great seafood then Exeter is right on your doorstep and its bustling markets and independent shops can offer a welcome change from all the beaches and hills.
Lastly, staying at Hornbeam Country Park means you’re only a short drive away from the picturesque Dartmoor National Park. If you want a holiday where you can explore rugged moorland then Hornbeam Country Park is the perfect place for you to stay.
