A welcoming pub in a lovely little Dartmoor village, with a bar, restaurant and family room, good British pub menu with children's options and a Sunday carvery.
Hugged by red cliffs thick with vegetation, Shaldon Beach sits at the mouth of the River Teign in Devon. Comprising of eye-catching red sand and a gently sloping shore, the beach is a popular spot in summer, providing a real haven for beach-lovers of all ages. Sit back and take in the views or try your hand at a favourite activity, this picture-postcard beach caters for everyone. For ease, facilities are located nearby and although there are no lifeguards, the beach is often used for watersports, including swimming, sailing and rowing.
Most of Shaldon beach has a summer time ban on dog walking.
Excellent beach. Not for the unfit as quite a lot of steps involved in getting down/up.
Great for our dog and quiet in September. Cafe by the car park (cheapish parking charges)
A moorland romp through the storylands of Dartmoor. It's inspired many a tale of spooky goings-on and now you can encounter the remains and feel the chill for yourself on a guided walk.
The very heart of Dartmoor, this village is tucked into breathtakingly beautiful countryside. A couple of friendly pubs, cosy tea-rooms serving cream teas and a blissful, far-from-the-modern-world atmosphere.
Pretty and popular
A lovely spot - popular during the day, sleepy and peaceful morning and evening. Very well located for walking the moors.
A traditional village green overlooked by the beautiful church - a great place to picnic (don't share it with the ponies though!),
Having recently undergone a big makeover, the Carpenters Arms is ready to welcome guests with warm hospitality and excellent home-cooked food. Bright, clean and cosy, the pub is very popular so booking ahead is advised.
Not as good as we had hoped.
The log burner was very smoky so windows had to be opened and the pub quickly got cold. The chef ran out of peas for our fish and chips, and although the steak pie was good, the veg consisted of sliced courgettes which were tasteless. Just a bit disappointing, considering we had booked a week before.
A really lovely pub serving good food and beer. Friendly service - a relaxing place to eat and drink.
We were lucky enough to stay at The Old Post Office just around the corner from The Carpenter's Arms and we used it several times. Lovely welcoming atmosphere and the 'pub grub' menu was well cooked and presented. Would happily go back.
Pretty and traditional 18th Century pub in an unspoilt little village. Popular with locals and visitors alike, good wholesome menu and friendly and attentive staff - plus a lovely log fire!
Loads to do here, with lots of animals to see and touch, including some unusual creatures such as twin Gambian rats the size of cats and woolly 'sheep-pigs'!
Beautiful woodland walks, lovely and relaxing to explore and return for a cream tea.
A popular Inn with a great selection of real ales and a menu created using locally sourced ingredients. Full removation took taken place following a devastating thatch fire in 2016 and the pub now has a fresh and modern feel.
Nice pub food, good atmosphere and very welcoming.
Delightful thatched Dartmoor inn, where they stock local West Country ales. It's especially cosy in the evenings when the candles are lit. Dogs are welcome (except in the dining room).
A delightful Dartmoor inn surrounded by moorland and close to the village centre. Food is home cooked and real ales are available. In winter a roaring log fire will keep you warm and during the summer months there's a sheltered garden with access via a bridge over a moorland stream. Dogs are welcome on a lead.
Friendly staff, a good range of food and a great setting.
We ate here twice whilst staying in Widecombe -it's a 'proper' rural pub with an exceptionally friendly landlord and a good variety of guest ales and wine. The menu was really interesting and the meals were generous and well cooked. The pub itself is small, but there is also a larger streamside beer garden. Would highly recommend - always lots of locals here too, which speaks volumes.
Lovely old-fashioned homely pub by Widecombe in the Moor. Locally sourced food and real ales straight from the barrel.
There’s a distinctly ‘des res’ feel about Chagford - lots of pretty art galleries, upmarket cafes and chi-chi shops. A relaxing place for an amble.
lovely place, we had lunch at 3 crowns lovely Sunday lunch and amazing soup
A lovely friendly village
Chagford is an ideal location for a holiday for touring Dartmoor etc.
Has three pubs all serving excellent food, lots of lovely shops and you would have no need to travel to buy provisions as there is everything you need in the village. Special mention must be made of the beautiful fruit and veg shop which although very small has lovely fresh produce and extremely friendly staff.
