A report which was released this week has found that rail travel through the beautiful West Country scenery has become highly popular, with rail travel in Devon and Cornwall reaching a record high in 2012. Overall, passenger numbers rose by 4.7% on Devon and Cornwall’s seven community rail lines, passing the 2 million mark for the first time.

A number of railway lines throughout Devon and Cornwall take passengers on some of the most scenic routes in the country, such as on the Tarka Line from Exeter to Barnstaple, and it is no wonder that train travel has become increasingly popular with visitors who wish to explore more of their chosen holiday destination.

Devon is one of the best places in the UK to look for delightful English country cottages, with great attractions and beautiful scenery being two of the top reasons why people choose Devon for a holiday over other top UK resorts. Great transport links which embrace this scenery is just another great reason to enjoy a cottage holiday in Devon or Cornwall.
