Deeply incised landscape that is intimate, hidden and secretive away from the plateau tops

The ability to quickly immerse oneself in the landscape and “get away from it all” is an important and highly valued characteristic of the South Devon National Landscape.


When traversing the National Landscape, the incisions formed by the five main estuaries, the network of watercourses and their associated combes create a rapidly changing character – a key feature of the South Devon National Landscape.


The intimate and secretive character afforded by valley locations contrasts sharply with that of neighbouring plateau, coastal and urban locations.


Ancient woodlands form a finite irreplaceable resource of great importance.
