Great experience

Fantastic every night. Great menu and very tasty food. Nice wine list which we enjoyed! The staff were excellent and efficient, made us feel at home. Very dog friendly - our lab loved it!

Nearest beach

Cremyll Beach (19 miles)

Both Barn Pool and this beach are next to the Cremyll foot ferry with access to the gardens of Mount Edgecumbe Park nearby. With lovely views across to Plymouth, Cremyll beach is shingle and sand with some rock pools around the south side. Car parking is available at Cremyll and dogs are allowed year round.

Nearest walk

Lydford Gorge (1 ¼ miles)

A woodland trail through the South West's deepest gorge, alongside the River Lyd, past the spectacular 30m Whitelady waterfall to the 'Devil's Cauldron' whirlpools. Visit in May to see carpets of bluebells. Steep paths in places, can be slippery when wet - walking boots a must. Access to the Devil's Cauldron may occasionally be closed for safety reasons. The tea rooms located nearby offer some welcome refreshments!

Mrs Thomas August 2014

This is a beautiful wooded walk, although not for the faint hearted as it is steep and slippery in places. A great place to walk on a hot day as the trees provide a bit of shade from the heat. A really pretty place to visit if you're staying in the area.

A stunning walk through a hidden Dartmoor jewel.

National Trust delight

A steepish walk into the gorge but a lovely place once you're there. It could be quite mystical for children. Very verdant and if you are lucky you will see dippers and grey wagtail. At one end of the walk there is a delightful NT shop and tearoom. The waterfall and devils cauldron are captivating.

Lydford Gorge offers a beautiful walk through the valley - with short and steep or long and easy routes. Look out for the dormice boxes, part of the National Trust's nature conservation project.

Great Quiz Night

Went on the first evening thinking we had booked, found a table for us anyway. Food exceptional and welcome very friendly. Decided to go later in the week for the quiz and curry night. Usually held first Thursday of every month. Booking essential. Very well organised and great fun, and we won!!. Would definitely reccommend this to anyone though be sure of directions as the sign is on the hedge as you pass it and you could end up back on the main road!!

Looks good

Our walk overran (see Tavy Cleave walk) so we did not get a chance to try it out, but it looked good from the outside and the Web site looks good. I definitely intend to go back and will report again then.

Cholwell Farm and Riding Stables (1 ¼ miles)

From beginners to the experienced, from one hour to all day, escorted rides and lessons take place on stunning Dartmoor.

Mrs Pascoe April 2012

Highly recommended

We visited this stables as a group of experienced riders and horse owners on a weekend break. We found a good variety of horses to suit all customers (not just riding school 'plods'), all of which were well looked after, fit and happy. The staff were exceptionally friendly, struck the perfect balance of being there to guide but not to make the experience regimented, and were calm and safety conscious. It was refreshing to go somewhere that catered for an experienced group and we had a lot of gallops across the open moorland. The approach track could be pretty hair-raising on an icy day, but I would rate this as a must for anyone who wants a different view of Dartmoor (they will happily cater for mixed experience groups and complete novices too).

Lydford Castle (1 ¼ miles)

The castle was built in 1195 AD at a cost of around £35. Further alterations were made during the 13th Century. It was used as a prison and a court of law during the Middle Ages and even in its present condition modern day visitors can still get a sense of its intimidating past!

Free attraction which makes a nice change!

Just upriver from the spectacular gorge and next to the lovely parish church is the English Heritage site. Lovely views on top of the mound.

Merrivale Stones (5 ¾ miles)

Dartmoor is littered with mysterious standing stones, hut circles and old burial chambers believed to have been constructed up to 5,000 years ago. The stones at Merrivale are probably Dartmoor's most easily accessible, and include the longest double stone row in Europe, a stone circle, menhirs (standing stones) and a kistvaen (burial tomb).

Atmospheric!

You definitely know you're on the open moor here! When you think about the history surrounding you, it really gives you a sense of being a speck in a much bigger picture. A fantastic place to watch the sunset on mid-summer's eve - the summer solstice. Something very strange happens when the sun sets over Staple Tor - accident or design?

Tavy Cleave Walk (2 ¼ miles)

Park at the car park at Lane’s End (OS Map 191 Map Ref. SX537825) and ahead of you rises Ger Tor. Follow your nose to Ger Tor and from the top you will see Hare Tor. It is an easy scramble to the top of Hare Tor which opens up a wonderful vista of the high moors from Great Links Tor past Great Kneeset to Fur Tor. From the top of Hare Tor, head west down to the upper reaches of the River Tavy. Pick up the somewhat vague and scrambling path that runs alongside the river; the early stages of the path require eagle eyes and a fair bit of rock hopping. Chase the river and you will be well rewarded with a series of beautiful waterfalls. Follow the steep sided river valley until it begins to open up; at that point you will come across a sluice hut and millrace that signifies the start of the leat that runs along the western side of the valley. Follow this around Nat Tor and voila, you’re back to the car park.
