7 Reasons to Retire in Devon

Devon Beach

Glenholt Park, Devon’s premier park lies south-west of Dartmoor National Park and is perfectly located for those who want the best of both worlds, rural tranquillity and access to the brighter lights of a modern city just four miles away.

Here are 7 reasons why we think Devon, and Glenholt Park in particular, is the perfect place to retire and spend those ‘golden years’.

Nothing beats the feeling of sand in between your toes and South Devon is home to some spectacular beaches which can be enjoyed all year round.



Dartmoor National Park, the setting for Arthur Conan Doyle’s ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’, is famous for its beauty, great walks and its ponies. It is also right on the doorstep of Glenholt Park



Plymouth is also in Glenholt Park’s back yard. Along with excellent shopping, parks, theatres, museums, restaurants and a charming seafront, it is also a gateway to the continent with regular ferries to France and Spain.

Devon Castle


South Devon is a playground for amateur historians and geologists. You don’t have to travel far until you come across one of Devon’s many castles.  Powderham, Drogo, Berry Pomeroy, Totnes and Tiverton are all well worth going to.


Picture perfect villages, stunning sea walks and spectacular moor rambles, no matter what your age or fitness, Devon has a wide range of walks for every ability.



Devon Cream teas, enough said. With miles of extensive coastline too, it is probably safe to say that the seafood is just as exquisite. The cities, towns and villages which surround Glenholt Park are also home to some gorgeous boutique shops. Plymouth and Exeter have excellent shopping opportunities and Totnes is a must visit for those who enjoy a more unique shopping experience.
