2 extra days in the 'West Country' and can't decide...

...where to go!

We're very familiar with Cornwall, and go every year to see family etc. This year however instead of our usual 10 nights in Cornwall we thought we spend the last 2 somewhere new.

We live near to Chichester so somewhere in between would be great, we already visit Lyme regis, Bath and a lot of Dorset especially around Weymouth regularly, and known Salisbury etc. quite well too.

We like coastal scenery, historical and prehistoric monuments and buildings, museums, walking, and good food!

Any ideas appreciated :)

How about north Devon for a change. Great beaches at Croyde and Woolacombe or interesting walks around the coast and along the rivers at Lynton and Lynmouth and of course the moors are not too far away as well.

The Isle of Purbeck. Corfe Castle would be perfect.

Hardygeranium I haven't actually heard of those 4 places so will definitely take a look! :)

Mike - we love the Isle of Purbeck, have been there regularly after visiting Tyneham ghost village where my great grandfather was coast guard, so would have been perfect if I hadn't already been :)

Dartmoor would be great, especially if you enjoy walking. The small town of Tavistock is very attractive and well worth exploring.
