There is plenty to keep the children entertained at this family-friendly pub with large indoor and outdoor play areas, an indoor swimming pool and farm animals. We hear the Sunday roast is good too.
Great if you have kids as a fab playground.
Not really a cosy country pub and the food was ok
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.
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.
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.
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.
Beautiful selection of show gardens and fabulous fruit and vegetable gardens. Well worth a visit and a cream tea
Well worth a visit and 25 minutes from Forest View. Beautiful well kept gardens.
Beautiful, well-managed gardens, well worth a visit whatever the season.
The garden is absolutely gorgeous and very well looked after. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had great locally sourced food. A great day out for adults and children.
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.
This farm shop specialises in top quality award winning Red Ruby Devon Beef which is produced locally. So go on, treat yourself
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.
Last great manor house built in England
This grand house can be seen by a superb and fascinating tour. The history of Castle Drogo and its owners is a marvellous tale. Very pleasant walking offered as well.
The last castle to be built in England. This remarkable 20th Century fortress stands high above the Teign Gorge on Dartmoor.
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!
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.
Wonderful, friendly pub, fantastic food. Go there and see for yourself! Look round the Church too while you are there.
The Sunday lunch here is something to behold - meats from Devon’s best farms are the star of the show.
