Devon, United Kingdom
If you have crave the feeling of being somewhere a touch more exotic than the good old UK then head for Lydford Gorge in Devon. When you’re standing at the foot of the White Lady waterfall, you could legitimately be in Bali, or Mexico. Take a stroll up the path cut into the side of the gorge, step into the famous ‘Devil’s Cauldron’, where the raging torrent has cut far down into the shiny black rock, and you’ll be convinced that you’ve left England far behind you. Once you’ve emerged from the gorge, dazed, head for Brentor, just as dramatic, but a world away. Climb the rugged ‘tor’ to the chapel perched at the top, which, amazingly, still puts on Sunday services, and drink in panoramic views over the moor all the way to the south coast.
Explore Devon’s winding lanes and head south to the likes of the regency seaside resort of Sidmouth, which comes alive with its Folk Week in the summer, or north to Ilfracombe, where waves crash on a coast which, on a sunny summer’s day, gives the Med a run for its money and surfers flock. This is prime camping country, perfect for a road trip and nights in coastal campsites or free-camping in hidden spots on the moor. Come prepared for the rain, as it’s anything but dry down here, but it’ll enchant you anyway.
