Map of Devon in South-West England from Expedia Devon also historically known as Devonshire... is situated in the far South West of England and bordered by the county of Cornwall to the west and the counties of Dorset and Somerset to the east.  It is the third largest county in England, popular with tourists and boasts some lovely coastal scenery, sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages and two National Parks - Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Over the years, the county boundaries have changed, so for some parishes you might find it useful to visit the neighbouring Gen Web sites of: Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.
