East Allington lies in the South Hams district of South Devon, home of The Fortescue Arms, a well-known pub with a warm welcome and good service. The market town of Kingsbridge lies south of East Allington, at the head of a marine estuary. During the summer season there are river excursions to Salcombe to see the abundant wildlife in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Why not have an adventurous day on the estuary with surfing and kayaking, or take a long walk along the South West Coast Path? Further afield is the waterfront city of Plymouth housing the National Marine Aquarium, Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars.
Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?
