The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) organisation are launching a new walkers guide for the 38 mile route covering the East Devon Way. This also includes a business directory promoting food, drink and accommodation as well as activities along the way.
They are looking for East Devon's hidden gems that they may be unaware off but others may well know about and would like to promote them. Here is a list of what they are looking for -
- Accommodation providers, camp sites, self catering, B&B's and Hotels
- Local food producers, farm shops and deli's for people to purchase food for picnics
- Cafe's, tea rooms and somewhere to get a traditional Devon Cream Tea
- Pubs and restaurants
- Outdoor businesses, rural enterprises, luggage transfer companies, dog friendly businesses, cycle shops/hire and repairs and horse riding business.
They are also looking for tales of local history, legends, flora and fauna, special places, amazing views and perhaps photos from local people.
You can send you business details to the AONB if you wish to be a part of the project.
