Making the most of this situation, we drove down along the rugged north coast of Devon for the first time and returned on the 'off-the-beaten' path route through Dartmoor National Park. Even so, we still had time constraints, so were only able to hit the high points as we passed through! See my 'General' tip for a map of our excursions in and around Devon.
