... In fact, for me Devon itself holds a particular kind of 'feel' that no other county does.

Second largest county IIRC and blessed with such a huge variety of scenery & geography, I wouldn't move away. Ever. Assuming Angelina Jolie never tires of being Mrs Pitt.

I frgot to mention the eeriest place I've ever experienced on the Moors though:

Crazy Well pool, not far from Burrator Reservoir is an odd water filled hole on the moor. The water level varies very little during the year, in fact they used to drain water from it to assist in the granite mining, with no discernable drop in water level occuring.

There are tales saying that it's bottomless.

There's a legend that says if you camp overnight you'll see a monster rising from the pool. You will invariably die the next day or soon after. ...
