Peaceful and beautiful surroundings – retirement homes in Devon
With two separate and distinctive coastlines, north and south, two wild and beautiful moorlands, Exmoor and Dartmoor, and the delightful, historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth, Devon has a lot more to it than meets the eye.
There are lively market towns like Tavistock, noted for local produce, traditional crafts and a friendly welcome. You’ll find traditional seaside resorts like Torquay and Sidmouth, popular for holidays since Victorian times and retaining a real flavour of the past. There are historic attractions aplenty, with splendid castles at Drewsteignon and Totnes, and the South Devon Steam railway in Buckfastleigh all easily accessed from our retirement developments in Devon.

Getting around from our retirement developments in Devon is easy – the M5 motorway runs north from Exeter, there are rail services throughout the county and Exeter International Airport offers domestic and international flights.
