Check out these attractions to see across Dartmoor 

Enjoy a short break holiday at our cottages in South Devon and take a trip up to Dartmoor National Park. This stunning part of the county has many attractions to keep you busy, and here are some of the top places to visit during your stay:

Burrator Reservoir

Open all year, this tranquil reservoir is located in the heart of Dartmoor. The peaceful water and surrounding woodland is a welcoming break from the rugged moors. You can either walk or cycle around the reservoir, or maybe do a spot of fishing along the banks.

South Devon Railway

Give your feet a rest and see the stunning Devonshire countryside at a slower pace. The South Devon Railway is a seven-mile line built in 1872. Hop on to a steam train and enjoy an afternoon relaxing in an old-fashioned way.

Dartmoor Zoological Park

Dartmoor Zoo is 33 acres of beautiful woodland where you see the largest collection of Big Cats in South Devon, as well as many other mammals to visit. Events and animal encounters are held throughout the day so you can see animals being fed and get up close and personal with a variety of creatures.

Castle Drogo

High above the Teign Gorge, Castle Drogo is a stunning building. It has an ancient feel to it, yet is only 100 years old, the last one built in England. Inside you can explore the rooms that have precious treasures on display. Outside, take a stroll around the formal gardens or the Teign Valley with its ancient gorge, where you can spot all sorts of wildlife.

Okehampton Castle

This picturesque castle stands tall above the rushing Rive Okement. Once the largest in Devon, the remains of this Norman castle are still very impressive. Allegedly haunted, you can take a tour around the grounds and find out the interesting history of the place.

The Granite Way

If you want something active do on your holiday, take your bike or hire one, and cycle along the Granite Way. The 11 miles takes you between Okehampton and Lydford along the edge of Dartmoor. Mostly traffic free, this is a great way to see good views of the granite landscape of Dartmoor.

Walkies with Hedley

| 03rd December 2016 | Dog walks

Walkies with Hedley on a chilly November morning. The canal was frozen but the walk was lovely and a very festive Robin posed for the camera. The Ted Hughes Poetry Trail has been created at Stover Country Park to celebrate his poetry and long-standing links with Devon. Visitors to the Trail can read examples of Hughes’ finest poems relating to the natural world. These poems have been chosen with the help of Carol Hughes to relate to the wildlife to be seen and heard around the Country Park. The Park features sixteen specially-designed ‘poetry posts’, each displaying a poem by Ted Hughes on a theme relating to the natural world. There is also a short Children’s Poetry Trail which lets families share together some of Ted Hughes’ most memorable poems about the world of animals, some of which are illustrated by Raymond Briggs. Disabled Access, Dogs Allowed, Information Boards, Toilets, Visitor Centre, Walks, Access: Bus route available. Cycle and walk ways available. Hints and Tips: The park is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest primarily because of the dragonfly population. The best time to visit is during the summer months when the adult dragonflies are on the wing. For guests enjoying their holidays in Shaldon Devon it's approximately a 20 mins drive. Allow up to two hours to complete the full poetry trail, or follow shorter circuits to suit. ...

What a difference a day makes. This weeks storm washed this blue motor boat up high and dry on The Ness rocks. This is what was left of the boat 24 hours later. On my way home a small crabbing trawler was heading out to a very rough sea. Brave people....
