Devon Warnings and Dangers

  • If you're going to the pub on a Monday...

    ...Make Sure Its Open!!Devon really does have some cracking pubs both in the towns and the villages - plus a few in the middle of nowhere! Virtually all of the country pubs here are privately run (as opposed to being managed houses for the brewery companies) and as such many don't open on a Monday lunchtime in order to give their owners a bit of a...

  • Cycle Touring - Security

    Having your bike nicked whilst on a biking trip is going to be a little inconvenient to say the least. A decent lock is obvious, though the better the lock the heavier it is.

  • The Devon Mile! Cont...

    ...Just as you are double checking that you have the map the right way up and that you still are in the Northern Hemisphere you pass an open field gate and there's a local farmer, stretching his legs as he dismounts his tractor cab."Good afternoon?"

  • Steep Hills & Twisting Roads

    The A39 highway in North Devon, as it winds its way through the western parts of Exmoor National Park, faces some major challenges as it descends from the 800 foot high cliffs down to sea level where rivers have gouged major valleys and then, just as quickly, has to climb back up out of those river valleys. Especially near Lynmouth, where the road...

  • TRAFFIC JAMS!!!

    All over in Devon in the holiday season you will come across traffic jams,everything seems to come to a halt,everybody must leave home at the same time, LOL.It does get moving in the end and it hasn't put me off and its a good time to take in some of the countryside.

  • Watch out for the wildlife

    This is the heart of the countryside, so when driving it pays to watch out for sheep etc. who stray onto the roads. I had a sheep with its lamb wander out straight in front of the car, luckily I was able to avoid hitting them.
