Fantastic sandy beach

It's easy to park - with a long and short stay area, and a long prom - ideal for strolling as well as a good sandy beach. It's also easy to walk into the town for a change of scenery and a bite to eat. And there's mini-golf!

Nearest walk

Kennerleigh and Woolfardisworthy (3 ¼ miles)

We've found this lovely little walk (courtesy of DevonLife), through the gentle, rolling hills of mid Devon. Follow the details on their website and enjoy a three and a half mile ramble.

Nearest town

Black Dog (3 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.

Also nearby

Knightshayes Court (7 ¼ miles)

Free parking and walk for dog

We couldn't go in as we had the dog with us, but the car park was free and there's a nice woodland walk off the car park where dogs can walk off the lead. Nice setting and surrounding countryside.

A really nice place for children to visit, very hands on. Visitors can try on Civil War armour, see the medieval loos, learn about the 900 years of history, the ghosts, secret passages; beautiful garden. Very moderate admission prices, and excellent value for money. Free visitor parking inside.

Fantastic Food

Wonderful, friendly pub, fantastic food. Go there and see for yourself! Look round the Church too while you are there.

Tiverton (6 ½ miles)

Tiverton is set on the Exe and Lowman rivers in a circular layout, now jealously guarded by the planners. Best known for John Heathcoat who set up his 19th Century textile factory with a few wool frames after escaping the luddites in Loughborough, the industry prospered and he built nearby Knighthayes Court as his mansion - now open to visitors with the National Trust. Tiverton Castle is in the centre of the town.
