Nearest pub

Who'd Have Thought It Inn (1 ¼ miles)

The food at this pretty 16th Century village inn is swiftly earning a sterling reputation. Recommended as one of the 50 best country pubs in Britain by The Independent in June 2010.

Nearest beach

Cremyll Beach (8 ¾ 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

Dousland to Princetown Railway Track (2 ¼ miles)

This disused railway line has been transformed into a spectacular walkway and rough cycle track that winds through deciduous woodland and past high moorland Tors. There are marvellous views of Burrator Lake and the Walkham Valley and the track passes the quarries of Sweltor and Foggintor, once famous for the granite used on many London buildings, including London Bridge.

Challenging to cycle

We included this section as part of a longer cycle and probably regretted it. Not the best surface for hybrid bikes although they coped better than us. Quite a “bone shaker” surface coupled with a head wind made progress arduous and maybe would have been better to walk.

Views from the sea to Bodmin Moor, the only sound the cry of the buzzards; (good pubs in Princetown!)

Nearest town

Calstock (4 ¾ miles)

Perched on the banks of the great Tamar River, the historic waterway that divides Devon and Cornwall, Calstock is a pretty village full of whitewashed cottages that tumble down to the water’s edge. The skyline is dominated by an imposing viaduct that spans the river; an endless stream of boats of all shapes and sizes sail through the arches throughout the day. It is impossible to visit Calstock without getting on the water at least once – try a trip on the Tamar Passenger Ferry – a lovely open wooden boat which plies the river between Calstock and the National Trust’s historic Cotehele Quay.

Drake's Trail (2 ½ miles)

Named after one of Devon's most famous sons, Sir Francis Drake, the Drake's Trail project, launched in March 2009, includes a range of walking and cycling routes in West Devon for all age groups and fitness levels. The new off-road cycling route follows the old railway track between Tavistock and Plymouth, crossing open moorland at Roborough Down before reaching the wooded valleys of the River Meavy and eventually the River Plym.

The Royal Oak (2 miles)

Locals and visitors alike recommend this former 15th Century church house inn, named after the 800yr old oak tree on the adjacent village green. The ancient interior lends a homely traditional feel, from flagstone floors to church pew seating. The ales are quality and the food highly rated.

Very Good Lunch

Excellent pub lunch. The menu is quite limited (the sign of good food) but has something for everyone. We had two platters between the three of us and couldn’t manage it all. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Parking might be an issue at busy times but we managed to find a space.

Stoic British carried on in AWFUL weather!

Wonderful House, Gardens, grounds and shops..AWFUL half term weather, but we braved it all! NB the house has NO electric lights so visibility in the house is limited on dull days!. Mill lovely and the walk down from the house through the gardens and past the chapel to the quay side and then the mill was lovely....a little slippery in places as it a little steep in parts and was SO wet..but we all remained upright! Lovely Cornish ice creams at the Quay and great bread flour can be bought at the mill shop. Hurrah for the VERY helpful and lovely mini bus driver who can ferry any less able bodies around the 3 sites...

Cotehele is a beautiful National Trust property - I recommend walking the wider estate, including the folly behind the property which gives you a bird's eye view for miles! The walk down through the quay to the mill is stunning, and the waterwheel and mill race is currently being renovated, which is an interesting project. You can even buy flour that has been milled on site.

A medieval gem with a magical garden sloping down to the Tamar. Plenty of walks on the Estate. Highly recommended are the scones at the restaurant on Cotehele Quay - just the thing at the end of a stroll along the river.

Buckland Abbey (1 ¼ miles)

An outstanding building dating back 700 years, formerly the home of Sir Francis Drake and reputed to be haunted by him to this day.

Lovely walks on the estate, plus an Elizabethan herb garden. Sometimes 'Sir Francis Drake' can be found wandering around, but don't worry he's not a ghostly apparition.

The Garden House (2 miles)

Well, if it’s on Alan Titchmarsh’s ‘must see’ list, it’s good enough for us. This eight-acre garden is actually several gardens in one, combining old and new. The beautiful walled garden surrounds the ruins of a medieval vicarage, while the newly developed Long Walk takes you through a variety of landscapes, from the South African garden, to the cottage garden to the flower meadow, with beautiful views along the way over the Cornish hills, and hidden benches to stop and soak up the sights and sounds of the countryside. Cakes, cream teas and lunches are served in the tea rooms in the 18th Century vicarage. Open February to November.

A lot of thought has obviously gone into the planting and layout of these gardens. The result is something quite beautiful, with unexpected views and unusual plants and flowers awaiting you around every corner.
