Nearest pub

The Red Lion Exbourne (¼ mile)

A traditional pub with blackboard menus offering meals made from local produce. Meals are served everyday from midday until 9.30pm. Watch out for the Sunday roast! There are only three pubs in Devon which don't sell draught beer and this is one of them, to the delight of traditionalists.

Great pub, and they serve a fantastic Sunday lunch - highly recommended!

Nearest beach

Instow Beach (20 miles)

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.

Nearest walk

Broadwoodkelly Walk (2 ½ miles)

A four mile ramble on quiet country lanes, tracks and footpaths over fields (watch out for the mud in inclement weather!) Full route details are available on the Web site and limited parking is available outside the church or village hall.

Nearest town

Hatherleigh (4 miles)

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.

The Granite Way (4 ¾ 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.

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)

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 !

Farmer Luxtons Farm Shop (4 ¼ miles)

Local produce, keeping food miles to a minimum.

Farmer Luxtons Friendly First Class Food

Stuart Luxton and his family and team pride themselves on quality produce, properly hung meat and friendly, knowledgeable service. Purchasing meat from here isn't just a trip to the butchers, but a truly first class customer service experience. Sellers of veg, pies, proper butter, milk, ice-cream etc, we would thoroughly recommend Farmer Luxtons.

The Burrow underground shop and cafe (¼ mile)

When their only local shop closed, the residents formed a committee and raised the funds for a new build that wouldn't look out of place on 'Grand Designs'. Go for the architectural experience, stay for the cafe, come away with local produce.

RHS Rosemoor (12 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.

Halsdon Woods and Nature Reserve (7 ½ miles)

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.
