South Hams: an area of outstanding natural beauty

South Hams District makes up a large swath of Devon, in south-west England. It's long been a vacation spot with families escaping cities for the fresh sea air for well over a century. It's noted for its picturesque landscape that starts from the pebble beaches of the south shores of the county and transform through rolling green meadows to the high moorlands and craggy peaks of Dartmoor. It might not have the most consistent weather, but a little drizzle never dampens the spirit, with plenty of attractions or pubs to dive into for cover. Catch it right, though and the weather can be glorious.
