Bordered by Somerset, Dorset and the Duchy County of Cornwall, Devon is England's third largest county with nearly 7,000 sq. kilometres of land. Devon contains the two natural parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor, the coastal towns and seaside resorts of two coast lines, picturesque villages with their thatched cottages and charming inns, the industrial centres and a variety of ancient history. There is a lot to see and learn within the beautiful county of Devon.

The beautiful historic seaport town of Dartmouth is positioned on the hillside, at the mouth of the River Dart. This ancient town has a long and illustrious history with some magnificent buildings set amongst its inquiring narrow streets. One such building, the half-timbered Cherub Pub dates back to the 14th century. Dartmouth Castle (1481) located nearby is an imposing example of the past which still stands today after guarding the mouth of the Dart for centuries. Dartmouth's natural deepwater port, which still provides haven for many vessels, was once one of England's busiest harbours sending out sailors, pilgrims and even crusaders on voyages of discovery and expedition.
