Muddy says: A historic 14th century castle with a modern indie vibe. The home to Let's Rock Exeter and Radio One's Big Weekend in 2016, with centuries of stories behind it and an exciting future as a cultural hub ahead.
Muddy says: North Devon does 'big' well, doesn't it? Big landscapes, big beaches and The Big Sheep, with the biggest rollercoaster in the county! Kids will love this place, with its rides, live animal shows and all the charm of a farmyard, with oodles of added fun.
Muddy says: cute, furry, totally affectionate animals? Check. Cracking countryside location with views out to the Jurassic Coast? Check. Loads to do, plus a cafe worthy of a visit alone? Checkity check-check. Of course we're totally smitten by The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth!
