Top Devon events right on your doorstep this June

31 May 2018

Ah, there’s nothing better than feeling the glorious Devon sunshine beaming down on you at one of the many top Devon events this June. Of course, the beach is just perfect for relaxation this time of year, and there’s nothing quite like the salty sea breeze, but there’s so much more to do in Devon this June. Cofton’s the perfect base to get involved!

Perhaps one of the best-attended events in Devon in June is the Torbay Air Show on 2nd & 3rd June. Set your picnic up anywhere along the seafront and get ready for an aerial extravaganza and a celebration of British innovation. For the first time ever, the Torbay Airshow will play host to the Vampire Pair, which feature some of the earliest examples of British designed aircraft. The Vampire Pair has terrific pedigree within the Royal Air Force and other air forces. And of course, who would want to miss the famous Red Arrows. Back again this year with their stunning air display with the iconic red, white and blue trails across the sky. Two days of spectacular air performances, don’t miss it!

If the foodie in you is looking for a special treat, the Kingsbridge Food & Music Festival is not to be missed. From 1st – 3rd June, Kingsbridge plays host to some of the Westcountry’s most high profile and boutique producers of food and drink. Exhibitors from Salcombe Brewery, Heron Valley Ciders and Sharpham Wine & Cheese to name just a few will all be showcasing their sumptuous produce. There’s music throughout the days and some evenings, so check out the full programme for more information.

In Devon, we do things a bit differently, which is why we have Lemonfest, the UK’s best truly independent boutique festival. Taking place on Newton Abbot Racecourse, it’s a two day festival with weekend tickets as cheap as £46.20. However, if you fancy just popping along for the day, day tickets are available from £25 and you can even catch the last train back to Cofton with trains running late into the night.

A local secret in June is Occombe Festival. Haven’t heard of it? Good, it’s meant to be a well-kept secret! Showcasing over 40 different ales and ciders, it’s Torbay’s only festival on a working farm. The best thing about the festival is it’s organised by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, meaning all the profits will go towards maintaining and protecting some of the wonderful Torbay coastline. The festival takes place on Occombe Farm on the 15th and 16th June. Get your drinking boots on!

Perhaps you’re more outdoorsy and you fancy getting up and out early and exploring by foot… or bike… or kayak? Any of the above is possible in Devon. Either take a leisurely stroll along the Exe Estuary where you’ll see the lovely views of Powderham Castle, or have a look at our favourite Cofton cycling routes here. However, if you want to get the best views you might want to do it from the River Exe. Exe Adventures will pick you up from Cofton to take you on the popular Social Paddle, when you can choose to kayak, canoe or even Stand-up Paddle your way down the River Exe! This is perfect for those who want to test themselves and do something a bit differently, and it’s perfect for beginners! Of course, there’s a pint at the end of it if you choose so it’s not all work and no play…

Fancy staying on site? That’s no problem, either. Right at the end of June we proudly present Cofton’s American Car Show weekend which is one of our favourite times of the year. In it’s 5th year, the American Car Show features over 100 classic American and Canadian cars with a mix of muscle, hot rods and other classics. There will be plenty on during the day, such as the Cofton Cruise going through Dawlish – a peak opportunity to see the best cars riding together as well as a BBQ to keep you fueled up. This event is free for guests, too!
