A traditional English country inn near the famous Haytor Rocks on Dartmoor. Open log fires, excellent food (AA Rosette) and fine local ales make it an ideal refuelling stop for walkers.
Sailing, swimming, rowing and fishing are all but a few things likely to grab your attention at Shaldon Beach. With a wealth of activity and events throughout the year, this beach provides plenty of entertainment in the prettiest of packages. Parking and eateries are available nearby.
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)
Retrace the old route along which granite was exported from Dartmmor to the coast via the unique Haytor Granite Tramway and the Stover Canal. The Templer Way covers 18 miles between Haytor on Dartmoor and Teignmouth on Devon's south coast.
A bustling hub of activity, this town has an artsy-craftsy feel. It has all you need in terms of food and basics, and it’s a good bet for treats and presents, too.
Pretty town, nice independant shops and a fantastic craft centre in the old mill.
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.
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!
Yummy deli food that simply won't be found in any supermarket - this is what a good deli is all about. If you can't make it to the shop, their web site is chock full of goodies from deli gifts to afternoon teas - indeed their Devonshire Cream tea is one of the best in the country according to its awards.
My delivery was very professional, strong recycled trendy cardboard box with recycled paper 'straw' packing, keeping safe my beautiful fresh scones (eat quickly!), teabags, jam, biscuits - all locally made and scrumptious! But the best were the intriguing Figgy Bombons - mini figs injected full of delectable alcohol-laced chocolate and dunked in chocolate once more. Divine!
Come early to get a table - there aren’t many and this pub is very popular.
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.
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.
Go in season and enjoy dishes based around the excellent local game.
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).
