Stuart Lines Cruises

For the father figures that love the simple pleasures in life, there are fewer things better than a pasty and a pint in Devon. So, what better way to show the father figure in your life how much he means to you than spending time out on the water with a delicious pasty and pint. Sail along the calm waters of the River Exe or along the Devon coastline. Choose between the outdoor upper deck in good weather or the covered heated lower deck when it’s not so bright, but simply enjoy being together on the water.

Woofstock at Powerderham Castle

This all-weekend event is full of live music, dog shows, displays and demonstrations. If you father figure is a dog lover, this is the perfect event. Watch dogs compete in agility and obedience competitions or take part in your own contests such as distraction alley or hay bale racing. Shop at the wide variety of stalls. If you plan to enjoy the whole event, the Friday and Saturday evening of Woofstock turns into a dog-friendly music festival. It is the ideal activity on Your Devon Escape.
