Devon

A picturesque coastline was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Devon. I could walk around for days, with small breaks for crab, crab sandwiches, oysters and, natuarlly, cream tea. My favourite spot was a secluded beach close to East Prawle, the Moor Sand Beach. The whole area around East Prawle is great anyway! You have to take truly miniature roads to get there and the whole place is only a few streets. And there's a pub called Pig's Nose on one of those streets!

Haytor

If you ever choose to visit Dartmoor, don't miss the Haytor walk. There are hills, moorlands and granite tors. It's beautiful and it's green! Make sure to have cream tea afterwards. It's a traditional afternoon treat comprised of a pot of hot tea, freshly baked scones, homemade jam and clotted cream - local specialty, thick, fat and buttery. The tradition derives from Devon and/or Cornwall and the two counties have contradictory opinions on whether one should top a scone with jam first and follow with clotted cream (Cornwall) or start with cream and put jam second (Devon). Feel free to try both options. I personally think that it actually depends on the thickness of jam.

Dartmoor

There's nothing better than a little house in the middle of nowhere and a morning coffee in a beautiful scenery. Dartmoor is a national park in Devon, famous for moorlands, granite tors and wildlife. If you like wild ponies and cream teas, you definitely should pay a visit!
