Waie Inn

Great if you have kids as a fab playground.
Not really a cosy country pub and the food was ok

Nearest beach

Dawlish Warren Beach (22 miles)

The award-winning Dawlish Warren Beach has numerous accolades under its belt. A haven for wildlife, it is recognised as one of the most important sites for wildfowl and wading birds in England. Popular amongst flightless visitors too, the beach provides lots of family-friendly activities and facilities. From go karting to water sports to eateries offering food and drink, there is something for everyone here.

Nearest walk

Yeoford to Copplestone Walk (4 miles)

Following a section of the Tarka Line which runs from Exeter to Barnstaple, this four mile linear walk takes in some beautiful Devon scenery. Its quite tough in places and therefore not suitable for prams/pushchairs or wheelchairs and if you leave your car at Yeoford you will need to walk back to retrieve it or use local transport.

Nearest town

Black Dog (5 ¾ miles)

A lovely little name for a lovely little village, based on the not-so-lovely legend of a ghost, it's perched on a high ridge connecting Dartmoor with Exmoor, so wherever you look there are moorland views for miles. Make sure you stop off at The Black Dog Inn for the best views of Dartmoor.

RHS Rosemoor (18 miles)

Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.

Roses Galore!

The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.

The Red Ruby Farm Shop (1 mile)

This farm shop specialises in top quality award winning Red Ruby Devon Beef which is produced locally. So go on, treat yourself

Castle Drogo (8 ¼ miles)

England's youngest castle, designed by Lutyens and built of Dartmoor granite with all the mod-cons of the 1920's. At 300 metres high, it catches the wildest of Dartmoor’s weather. Try a spot of croquet on the croquet lawn or amble through the garden and miles of walks in the Teign Gorge.

Beautiful gardens, but castle is a bit of a building site

Visited Castle Drogo on a beautiful sunny warm day. The gardens are superb and the castle very interesting but as extensive building works are in progress, it is difficult to judge how it would look in normal times.

castle drogo to fingle bridge

Although only built in 1910 well worth visit, a real reminder of past living with contents on display with handy guide book. The walk down to Fingle Bridge and return via the river is a must.

Fabulous walks

Although the castle itself is closed at some times out of season (for cleaning, maintenance etc) the beautiful walks around the estate are always open. The walk down through the woodland and along the bottom of the gorge are breathtaking (literally, on the way back up!) - but there is the option of popping into the pub halfway around!

The Lamb Inn (5 ¾ miles)

An old 16th Century coach house with low ceilings, open fires, comfy sofas, a sheltered garden and a great reputation for food. Listed in the Michelin Pub Guide and the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, 2010.
