Exploring South Devon can be exhausting, there’s so much to see and do it can be hard fitting everything in. Picnics are a great way to combine enjoying the area and grabbing a bite to eat while not missing out on the wonderful views and adventures to be had.

Here are your suggestions of the Top Five places to have a picnic in South Devon.

Teignmouth River Beach

With views of Dartmoor in the distance and with a gentle sloping sand beach Teignmouth River Beach makes a ideal picnic spot and day out by the sea. Here you can watch the trawler men coming and going throughout the day and dogs are welcome all year round.

Overlooking the Salcombe Estuary

The town of Salcombe sits in the middle of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With many foot paths running throughout the surrounding countryside you’ll find plenty of great places to stops and enjoy the scenery while you grab a picnic.

Decoy Park

Decoy was once a clay quarry but now supports a wealth of wildlife. As well as a children’s play area and playing fields the Country Park provides opportunities for quiet countryside recreation such as walking, wildlife watching, duck feeding and picnics.

The Break Water in Dawlish

With great sea views and the beach to keep everyone entertained the break water at Dawlish makes the perfect place to stop for a picnic. Dawlish also has a park and brook which runs through the centre and is home to the famous black swans.

Along the River in Totnes

Totnes has a fascinating history and is full of a wonderful range of independent shops. But for a break from discovering this charming town head down to the banks of the River Dart, which flows through the middle, and enjoy the tranquillity while you watch the hustle and bustle of the town carry on around you.
