Escape the normal
Devon is a world away from everyday life, which is exactly what many newlyweds are looking for on their honeymoon. You can escape from the mundane on the Devon coast or at the selection of castles scattered throughout the region. Berry Poneroy, Dartmouth and Okehampton castles are just a few popular among many visitors to experience the well-preserved and beautifully sited 14th and 15th century buildings for a magical experience. Devon's local history also weaves into its popular mystical woodland walks for a peaceful and romantic getaway, so you can make the most of your time together as newlyweds.
