What is an AONB?

The designation of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) means it's one of the best bit's of countryside in the whole of England and Wales! And that’s officially recognised by the UK government.

South Devon AONB is part of a family of protected landscapes across Britain, which also includes our National Parks. There are 49 AONBs in the UK. These areas are protected to keep them special now and for the future. They are wonderful for wildlife and scenery, but also places where people live, work, relax and take care of the countryside.

What’s special about South Devon AONB?

Our AONB is loved for its rugged cliffs, sandy coves, peaceful countryside, pretty villages, rolling hills, secretive estuaries and dark night skies. It is ancient, and has generations of human activity etched into its landscape. The area is popular with locals and visitors alike, and offers both quiet inspiration and a wide range of recreation opportunities.
