Part-Buy Part-Rent in Devon

The south-western county has won fans from far and wide, seduced by its checklist of charms. They’re looking for summer dips as dawn breaks, beachcombing along its remote north coast, breezy jaunts through heathland, and cosying up in pubs with roaring fires and local craft beers. And not just for a holiday… for a way of life. You can find exceptional fish and chips when all you want is a vinegary pile of comfort fodder in salty seaside caffs. But the foodie scene has evolved exponentially in the past couple of decades with a handful of restaurants cooking up straight-out-of-the-sea dishes and chefs putting a sophisticated spin on foraged ingredients.

Devon is the sort of place you can find pubs that were the haunt of smugglers and fishermen; huddle up with drinks as the tide creeps in and catch a ride back to the mainland on a tractor. You can find hidden beer gardens covered in wisteria and creepers, where locals graze on epic Sunday lunches. Then there are the crowd-pleasing atmospheric joints in Devon’s cities and towns. Lively Exeter with its hulking gothic cathedral; Torquay that draws the crowds with its English-Riviera-style notoriety; riverside Dartmouth – the yachtie’s favourite with its gleaming boats and buzzy after-dark scene; and perpetually eccentric Totnes. Plus vineyards, the wild sprawl of Dartmoor, thudding surf and adventure almost everywhere.

 

Transport connections

Devon is also well connected with trains across the country: the two main lines are the Paddington line and Waterloo line served by Great Western Railway and South West Trains respectively.  Main stations include Tiverton, Exeter St. Davids, Newton Abbot, Totnes and Plymouth. There are also plentiful taxis, a bus network and the international Exeter Airport. Why wouldn’t you want to buy here? Unsure how this can all be yours?
