Nearest pub

The Waie Inn (1 mile)

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.

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.

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.

Mr Burns September 2012

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.

Mrs Lloyd July 2010

The last castle to be built in England. This remarkable 20th Century fortress stands high above the Teign Gorge on Dartmoor.

Mrs Pascoe March 2010

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.

Fabulous. Try the Game Pie!

The Granite Way (11 miles)

This cycle and walking route runs for 11 miles between Lydford and Okehampton along a disused railway line. The route forms part of the National Cycle network with Okehampton the most popular start point where bicycles can be hired locally. The off road track has the advantage of being mostly traffic free. Meldon Viaduct offers spectacular views across the moors.

Ahh the sound of traffic!

I love walking, but I couldn't wait to get off this one. We made it from Okehampton to the Meldon Viaduct before abandoning The Granite Way and heading to the moors - it was the only way to escape the A30's roaring traffic! The subsequent walk through the valley to Meldon reservoir and over the moors to Shortacombe was great though!

Kid friendly cycle

Start from the station where you can hire bikes ( we bought our own) there is a youth hostel there in case you need to pick up basic supplies like chocolate and water! I did this with my 5 year old boy- it was not great weather but we cycled to meld on viaduct and back in less than an hour ( total of about 4 miles) and it was enjoyed by both of us - some lovely views and a nice safe easy ride- the only bit on the road is from the very quiet station to the start of the path ( we did this on a rainy day in August)

Mrs Pascoe February 2015

Great for the average cyclist

The cycleway starts at the old Okehampton Station (you can park right there) and is very easy to follow. There are a few gentle hills - nothing that strenuous - so it really is suitable for all ages and abilities. The scenery is beautiful - I'd recommend stopping off at the Bearslake Inn for a swift refreshment! - and it's very easy for an averagely fit cyclist to ride from Okehampton down to Lydford Gorge and back in around 4 hours with time for stop offs.

Mrs Warburton November 2011

From Okehampton station join the Granite Way Walk (cycle route 27) which follows the Dartmoor railway line. It is predominantly tarmac so no dirty puddles to avoid and ideal for bike riders of all ages, with only gentle inclines. A comfortable 3 mile walk will take you to Meldon Viaduct which gives stunning views over the moor and Meldon Reservoir Dam. Another mile or so gets you to the reservoir. At the Viaduct there is a converted railway carriage which provides a small cafe - seems only to be open at weekends which is a real shame as mid week in half term there were plenty of walkers and cyclists who I'm sure would have stopped for a welcome cuppa !
