Fancy living the Devon dream? Come on down for over 200 miles of South West coast path, national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and more beaches than you can shake an ice-lolly stick at. Plus two vibrant hubs: the cathedral and university city of Exeter and the Ocean City of Plymouth.
Totnes was into sustainable living and eco-chic well before the rest of the UK, and now everyone else has caught on, it's looking VERY on-trend.
Want a waterside location but without the tourists and schlep to the shops? Welcome to Topsham, an oh-so pretty, bijou town on the Exe estuary, less than five miles from the bright lights of Exeter.
Two beaches and a direct train to London, you say? No wonder Teignmouth is one of Devon's most-Googled towns, right now.
With historic bones and the scent of old farming money in the fresh moor air, Tavistock may not have a train station but it has everything else you could want in a town.
Perfect for anyone who needs all perks of living in a town but wants to be able to make a fast getaway. Ashburton is just off the Devon Expressway, with two cities just half an hour away, but with brilliant shops, community and a buzzing community right there.
Craving an outdoorsy life but don't want to be driving miles to get to the nearest shops and supermarket? South Molton and its surrounding villages could be for you, especially if you can't decide between beach, walks and moors. It's got it all on the doorstep.
If you're a townie at heart, this traditional Devon market town could be for you. You'll find oodles of indie shops but you're just five minutes from bucolic rolling fields, half an hour from the sandy beach at Exmouth and 45 minutes from the stunning North Devon coast.
Happiest on the water? If you crave a laid-back boaty lifestyle, you can't beat this vibrant town at the top of the Salcombe estuary, less shishi (and less pricey) than nearby Salcombe but you can still get on the water in super-quick time.
