Top Tips

  • Take extra care when driving on Devon’s country lanes. They are often extremely narrow with high banks, making it difficult to see oncoming vehicles. Therefore, always remain vigilant and approach bends and blind spots accordingly.
  • If you meet a horse and rider while driving, slow right down and stop if necessary.
  • You will sometimes meet livestock in the lanes while they are being moved from one field to another. Be prepared to stop and wait until the road is clear.

Which companies offer best value in Plymouth?

Knowing which rental companies to trust the most can be a minefield, so we show ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing. Their feedback will give you an insight into how each brand compares in terms of customer satisfaction and overall value for money — assisting your decision when you are choosing who to rent with. We are completely impartial, but we are pleased to say Budget, Avis and Thrifty have been rated as ‘superb’ in Plymouth.

Day trips from Plymouth

Eden Project: Approximately 35 miles from Plymouth, the Eden Project is a dramatic garden housed in huge tropical biomes — and one of south-west England’s most popular visitor attractions. More than just an enormous tropical garden, the Eden Project provides a fascinating insight into the relationships between plants and people, and the story of mankind’s dependence on plant life. The simulated environments which are recreated in the biomes transport visitors on a botanical journey around the world, taking in lush tropical rainforests and the citrus trees and olive groves of the Mediterranean.

Blackpool Sands: One of South Devon’s most beautiful natural treasures, Blackpool Sands is an award-winning, ‘Blue Flag’ family beach just 30 miles from Plymouth. Situated on the majestic South Devon Heritage Coast, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the crystal-clear turquoise waters which gently lap against the shingle-shoreline give this utopia a distinctly Mediterranean appearance. With paddle boards and kayaks for hire, together with a beach-side café serving delicious hot and cold food, Blackpool Sands has something for the whole family.

Dartmouth: Situated beside the emerald waters of the River Dart, approximately 30 miles from Plymouth, Dartmouth is a beautiful town steeped in history. Overlooking one of the UK’s finest harbours, Dartmouth has a strong maritime heritage. One of the best times to visit this picturesque location is during the annual regatta — a spectacular weeklong celebration of the town’s seafaring history. At the mouth of the river estuary stands the 600-year-old Dartmouth Castle, where you can sample a delightful Devon cream tea while you admire the stunning views.
