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.

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.

Ness beach

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)

Nearest walk

Dartmoor Myths and Legends Walk (2 miles)

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.

Nearest town

Widecombe in the Moor (150 yards)

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.

A traditional village green overlooked by the beautiful church - a great place to picnic (don't share it with the ponies though!),

Wistman's Wood (6 ½ miles)

Rare mosses and lichens festoon the trees and granite boulders in this ancient oak wood. With its eerie, gnarled, moss-covered trees, it's easy to see why local legend has it that Druids once performed Pagan rituals here. Today, Devon's oldest woodland is a National Nature Reserve and a hotspot for moorland birds in the summer months. Reach it on foot from the nearby village of Two Bridges at the crossroads of the B3357 and B3212.

Realm of the Quercus Gods

To those like myself and my better half who are not pagan but follow those traditional Arte's of our Isle, Wismans wood is a realm certain to leave an impression not just for its familiarity but for it's pure presence. Haunting, ethereal, eerie, disquieting and much more, this is somewhere that beckons you to enter but doesn't wish you to leave.
The moss-covered rocks can be slippery to traverse and there were a few trips and falls, also there are adders present (I nearly stood on one as it darted beneath a rock but got caught and sadly lost part of its tail) so people taking canines or young children should be mindful.

A really beautiful walk to a very atmospheric place!! Not too far, and well placed to stop for lunch at the Two Bridges Hotel afterwards!

There is something quite eery yet fascinating about Wistman's Wood! I would recommend packing a picnic and taking a trip to visit the wood as the mosses and weavy trees are not like any other.

The Woods Between the Worlds

The stunted oaks covered in moss give Wistman's Wood an otherworldly feel. Walking here, you could be in Narnia's 'woods between the worlds'. A very atmospheric place.

This is also a popular place for letterboxing (an outdoor hobby that combines orienteering and problem-solving and involves finding boxes hidden in various outdoor locations to collect special stamps). Many boxes have been sited around the wood over the years, and it is thought that Dartmoor is where letterboxing first originated.

Carpenters Arms (4 ¼ miles)

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.

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).
