We're planning to stay 3 days in Devon (or poss. Cornwall) before taking a ferry to FRance, because I have always wanted to see the area. I would love to stay longer but it is proving expensive and I would say the kids wil not appreciate the scenic beauty of the place - they prefer ice creams and swimming pools :-)
Can anyone recomend a base for us? Would a city/large town or out in the country be better?
I know it sounds crude, but what are the highlights, if you had to just pick 3-4 things to see/do in a short space of time, that hopefully doesnt incolve horrid amounts of driving (we will be coming from Wales, ANglesea from the ferry)?
Any recommendations of areas gratefully received.
