Are you planning a trip to Devon? If so, then gear up for the upcoming excitement as there will be loads of things to do and plan and many amazing places to visit. For instance, you will be visiting beautiful countryside, mesmerising ancient ruins, the stunning coastline, and probably taking a stroll through some of Devon’s town centres.

If you’re planning a trip out with your loved ones – family and friends – you will find Devon a dream destination. Even if it is a business trip to Devon, hopefully you’ll have some time to explore the area after and in-between meetings and make amazing memories with the countless attractions and activities that the region offers.

If you are an adrenaline junkie, you won’t be able to get enough of white water rafting, mountain climbing, and horse riding – the list goes on of challenges that will excite you and keep your spirits high. Nonetheless, if this is your first trip to Devon, you should know about the travel essentials that you will have to take on the trip to Devon.

Here is your list of packing essentials for a trip to Devon.

What clothes to pack

Obviously, you will need clothes and shoes that are suitable for the season. Weather can sometimes be unpredictable, which is why you should pack a waterproof jacket alongside plenty of clothes for the outdoors, even if you are travelling in summer.

If it is winter or spring, you will have to pack clothes accordingly. You should check the weather app in advance for the region you’re travelling to so that you have some idea about what you can expect once you reach Devon.

Depending on the areas of Devon that you plan to explore, you will need to pack your clothes accordingly. For instance, if you are planning to go on sunny beach walks or explore the beautiful towns of Dartmouth and Totnes, you might want to pack closed-toe flat shoes, light trousers, and tops. Also, bring layers of clothing if you plan to visit the historic castles and walk along the coast.

A waterproof jacket and a pair of waterproof walking boots will be quite useful if you plan on exploring the National Park of Dartmoor.

Most importantly, if you plan to swim and visit Devon during the warmer months, don’t forget to pack your sunblock and your swimwear, sandals, and summer dresses.

Things to pack in the picnic basket

No one visits Devon without exploring the beach – and you won’t either, which is why you ought to get your picnic basket ready, and if the weather is fine, you will enjoy a marvellous day at the beach. Pack a picnic blanket, sun cream to protect your skin, a UV tent, beach towels, flip-flops, bucket and spade, and of course, food and drinks – preferably some sandwiches, snacks and a bottle of fizz!

Once you see the mesmerising beauty of Devon, you will want to capture everything that can be seen with the naked eye. If you don’t want to take your phone with you to disconnect from work or social media, you can use a camera and capture the beautiful memories on the beach, sea views, and your loved ones.

If you bring your dog to the beach, you will have to bring their lead, poop bags and treats with you.

Must-have items to keep in your backpack

You will need your phone charger even for a one-day tour to Devon as you’ll probably need Google Maps and your camera, both of which eat up your battery. If you vape, you will be traveling with your e-cigarette as this will be one of the most important items to include in your backpack.

If you need any medication, you will need to keep it in your backpack – preferably at a place from where you can easily retrieve it. Always keep your wallet, card, and cash with you. Don’t forget to tuck any tickets that you need into the backpack.

To stay hydrated while exploring the beautiful landscape of Devon, you will need to keep a portable water bottle with you at all times. The portable water bottle means that you won’t need to buy any drinks, you can stay hydrated and you don’t need to buy any single-use plastics.

Ideally, you will want to keep your devices fully charged at all times, so keep a power bank with you to keep your devices running.
