The seaside town of Teignmouth will lay claim to your affections the minute you arrive with most of its history wrapped up with its harbour, with fishing, and with clay from up the valley at Bovey Tracey.
Since Georgian and Regency times Teignmouth has been attracting visitors to its wide beaches and amenable climate, and this has shaped the greater part of what Teignmouth is today.
The seafront is much as your great grandparents would have enjoyed it, save for the recent addition of a popular £400,000 children's play area, new adventure golf course and multi-use games area. The town near the seafront is predominantly Regency and Victorian in style.
Budleigh Salterton is a seaside town with an elegant atmosphere and a beach composed of unique pebbles.
One of the highlights of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the Budleigh Salterton pebbles are immediately recognisable. Carried here from Brittany by an ancient river flowing into the Triassic desert about 240 million years ago, erosion is gradually spilling them from Budleigh's cliffs onto the beach below.
Another impressive Jurassic Coast geological feature can be found just around the headland in towering rock stacks at Ladram Bay.
