Followers of UK classical music festivals who are planning on coming down to Devon for the Two Moors Festival’s main two-week event in October (15th-25th) will want to know what else they can do while in the area at this time – and some of the county’s top activities have made it into VisitEngland’s list of top 25 outdoor pursuits to get up to in the UK.
Inspired by A A Milne’s much-loved character, the rundown has been dubbed Winnie-the-Pooh’s Simple Pleasures and number two in the list is going for afternoon tea in Devon! Stargazing in Exmoor National Park has also been featured (number 11 in the list), as has visiting a honey farm in Devon.
These are all lovely activities to get up to while on holiday in Devon, so try and fit them all in as you make your way across the countryside to one of our many classical music concerts taking place over the ten days.
Stargazing is a great way to pass your time while here, as the night skies are so dark that you can see all sorts of lunar activity. There’s also Quince Honey Farm in South Molton, which is no distance at all from the Two Moors Festival HQ.
If afternoon tea takes your fancy, there are many places you can go in Devon. Combe House in Exeter is a delightfully elegant establishment, while if you go for a walk around Tarr Steps you’ll find a lovely little cafe/restaurant at the Tarr Farm Inn.
Let us know what you get up to while in Devon – and which of our concerts you enjoyed the most!
