Heavenly Honeymoons at Pitt Farm, Devon
2020 has seen mass travel bans and a sharp decline in air travel, with many people opting to holiday in the UK rather than overseas. So, instead of jetting off abroad and dealing with hours upon hours of travel time, why not spend your honeymoon period exploring the enchanting landscapes and beautiful beaches that Devon has to offer?!
Honeymoons and mini-moons in the UK pose significant benefits that cannot be found with international affairs. Firstly, there is a lot less travel-time needed; no more endless waiting around in airports, dealing with the headache of delays and complications. The language barrier is also not an issue, as you have the freedom to speak in your mother tongue during your romantic break. And finally, the biggest benefit of all is the cost: a honeymoon in the UK is often a much cheaper option, allowing you to save your pennies and spend them on building a fairy tale future together.
Exe Valley Weddings is nestled within Pitt Farm, an attractive working farm in rural mid-Devon. Below are just some of the reasons why you should choose to honeymoon in Devon as part of your upcoming wedding celebrations…
Devon is home to some of the UK’s most spectacular beaches – allowing you to walk hand-in-hand and feel the sand between your toes without even leaving the country. Sidmouth Beach is a beautiful, unspoilt stretch of sand, surrounded by pretty coves and dramatic cliff faces; Saunton Sands boasts 3-and-a-half-miles of epic golden sand, welcoming surfers from near and afar; which is backed by Braunton Burrows, the largest network of sand dunes in the British Isles.
Head to the stunning Croyde Bay to witness the most spectacular sunsets. This beautiful Bay positively oozes character and charm, and is well-known as one of North Devon’s greatest sunset spots. Pack a romantic picnic and watch in awe as the sun descends from the sky during your magical ‘moon.
Whether you prefer romantic strolls or more adventurous hikes, there is something to suit every age and ability here in mid-Devon. Dartmoor and Exmoor National Park are areas of outstanding natural beauty, offering a plethora of trails and paths; Wistman’s Wood is a mystical woodland with an alluring and awe-inspiring aura; and the Tarr Steps are home to the UK’s longest and oldest clapper bridge, making for a fascinating adventure.
If you’re looking for a decent day out, Lundy Island is well-worth a visit. Featuring an amazing abundance of wildlife and a rich historical backdrop, the natural rugged beauty of the island makes for a walker’s paradise. Drive over to Ilfracombe and hop on the Lundy ferry for a fun-filled day of exploration.
Make memories that will last a lifetime here in mid-Devon. Why not show each other that love really is in the air with a picture-perfect hot air balloon ride? Local company Aerosaurus provides champagne hot air balloon flights over some of the most scenic areas of the South West, with their Tiverton meeting point just a twenty-minute drive away from our farm.
If you prefer to travel by water, there are many romantic river boat tours situated within our beautiful county. Take a trip down Dartmouth River on the historic Kingswear Castle Paddle Steamer (the UK’s last remaining coal-fired paddle steamer still in operation today) or hire your own private vessel from Picnic Boat. The sky is the limit!
