A quaint village pub that's been done up for the 21st century with a bar and family-style restaurant. The locals love it for the Sunday Carvery and regular food nights. Visitors love that it caters for little ones and has a beer garden.
This is a shingle and stone beach which can only be reached via Millook Beach at low tide.
This six and a half mile walk, brought to you courtesy of the aa.com website, follows fields and country lanes. It should take you about three hours to walk and you can park on Fore Street where the walk starts. Take a look at the website for further details.
Almost nudging the border of Cornwall, Lifton lies in the folds of the hilly Devon countryside. Despite the fact that Lifton is a small village, it has two major attractions to boast. The first, The Fairground Heritage Centre, is a magical exploration of the history of fairground rides and includes some mesmerizing examples of steam-driven carousels. Holding an entirely different appeal is the nearby Roadford Lake; 730 acres of water draws anglers, watersports enthusiasts, ramblers and cyclists throughout the year.
Spend an afternoon plucking plump, juicy strawberries in the fields, then try to resist the aroma of freshly baked bread and hot pies luring you into the Barn farmhouse restaurant. If you want to stock up on West Country produce, the farm shop is bursting at the seams with local goodies.
Lovely fresh produce
Pick your own strawberries and buy one of their home made pies for supper.
You just can't beat pick your own Strawberries, they taste gorgeous and with a traditional farm shop alongside that sells everything you could possibly want, with the added bonus of it all being locally sourced and home-grown, you have to pay them a visit.
Great for a Sunday roast, and then you can pick up locally sourced veg, meat and bread straight out of the oven.
The ice cream is highly recommended and the restaurant's worth a visit.
A Farm Shop with a difference.
Whether you want coffee and cake, a full blown roast lunch, a Cornish pasty or Saffron buns - this is the place - the cafe is open every day (you will need to get there early for Sunday lunch). Cooked on the premises the pies, pastries and cakes are to die for. The farm shop always has a good selection of fresh seasonal produce and the butcher's counter has a wide variety of locally farmed meat. For those of you with a cold box there are also pasties, pies, veg and fruits available from the freezer. Well worth a quick detour off the A30.
Bar and restaurant in a Grade II listed building, parts of which date back to the 1600s.
Lovely pub / restaurant
Nice friendly pub where we had dinner once and went for drinks a couple of times. Small cosy pub area. Food was very nice. Staff are very friendly. We felt welcome. Quiz night on Tuesdays twice a month.
Good food. Will allow dogs in the bar. Themed food nights are held on alternate Tuesdays.

All the fun of the fair - an unusual homage to the weird and wonderful world of the fairground. Capturing the magic of a bygone era with vintage fairgound rides, artwork and exhibits.
Wonderful rainy day fun
The best collection of old, working fairground rides anywhere, all under cover. Entry fee lasts all year. I would highly recommend the Dodgems!
Straight out of Thomas the Tank Engine, this is a fun-filled excursion whatever the weather. Learn about the little locomotives, or just sit back and enjoy ride.
A quirky little train journey! We were glamping at Western Meadows (near New Mill Farm Park) and caught the quaint little steam train from the Farm Park into the town of Launceston for a look around. The children loved the 2 mile journey through countryside, it really did feel like we were stepping back in time.
With a fistfull of awards including Taste of the West Gold 2016 and AA two Rosettes, pop in for delicious food created using food from local suppliers. You'll receive a warm welcome in contemporary surroundings.
The Arundell Arms
A good luch stop if you are en route to somewhere as its just off the A30. A very traditional country house hotel/restaurant with a hunting, shooting, fishing theme. They do great lunch baguettes and lovely home made shortcake with coffee. Excellent loos too!
This 300-year-old coaching inn serves great food with traditional and good service.
