Only one mile away from the famous Tarka Trail, this pub is the perfect stopping place for traditional English pub food. Fires keep you toasty in winter and a secluded garden is the perfect place to sit in summer.
A great beach for children with acres of sand at low tide, shallow waters and usually calm seas. There are plenty of facilities nearby in the village. Dog restrictions apply so please check locally.
A pretty established nature reserve consisting of grassland, meadows, woodland and ponds, and all the associated flora and fauna including orchids, butterflies, dragonflies and hares. The area is accessed via the famous Tarka Trail so don your walking boots or cycle helmets and get out in the great outdoors (not currently entirely suitable for poor mobility or pushchairs). It is also connected to the Devon Wildlife Trust's newest acquisition, the Meeth Quarry Nature Reserve, if you fancy a longer walk.
Set on the Tarka Trail just north of Okehampton, Dartmoor, bury yourself in the local way of life by staying in a quaint little Devon town. And by little we mean the smallest tow in Devon. But don't worry, it's got three pubs.
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, 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.
Several kilometres of track wend their way through this 142-acre reserve. Start from one of the two car parks for various circular routes that take in woodland, fields and the banks of the River Torridge
Through the woods and along the banks of the Torridge.
An old ruined mill covered in ivy, a pebbly beach by the side of the river to skim stones, and a trail up into the woods and along old, beaten paths through this nature reserve looked after by Devon Wildlife Trust makes this a perfect outing to observe our beautiful Devon countryside. Our walk took about two hours, perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll. There are hides ranged around the reserve from which to view the wildlife.
Set in the Torridge Valley this atmospheric pub offers a wide ranging menu and is well placed for great outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing.
Excellent for lunches. Also good walking in the vicinity.
This fun day out gives you the opportunity to learn the art of archery. Then put your newly taught skill to the test on dinosaurs, wolves and armoured knights! Much more than just target shooting.
Fantastic Family Fun!
Dragon Archery is the place to be if you want to try archery for the first time or if you are more experienced. Great challenges suitable for all ages from 8+. Really friendly encouraging team giving one to one coaching to help you get the most out of your experience. Suitable for all weathers...we went on a very wet and windy day in October! Only advice is BOOK EARLY as this attraction is very very popular!! If you are lucky enough to go along, you will see why.
A 3 hour archery session which involves shooting dinosaurs, amongst other things not just targets. I thoroughly enjoyed this and I wasn't expecting to. All equipment was supplied, and we were taught very well how to use it. Rather than just having targets to aim at, there are a number of themed areas including dinosaurs and orcs. The time passed very quickly and owners were very friendly and helpful.
Situated on the Tarka Trail, a great route for cyclists and walkers, this former quarry is a spectacular landscape transformed in recent years by the Devon Wildlife Trust into a nature reserve. It's definitely one to watch, with potential to become a flagship site as it becomes more established. Covering 370 acres with massive lakes to walk around, this is perfect for winter wildlife watching as well as summer strolls. There are colour coded trails to follow, suitable for mobility scooters and you can carry on down to the more established nature reserve at Ash Moor.
