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!

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 Forest (1 ¾ miles)

This is undisturbed woodland offers a quiet place to take a stroll, there are no defined routes so amble wherever takes your fancy! Down by the riverbank bank is particularly enjoyable!

Nearest town

Lydford (2 ½ miles)

This sleepy village is situated in West Devon within the Dartmoor National Park. The village is noted for its history and breathtaking views across the Dartmoor Tors. It is home to a massive spectacular granite viaduct which forms part of the disused rail route between Exeter and Plymouth.

Also nearby

Lydford Gorge (2 ½ 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!

Great walk

Fabulous natural trail through the gorge and welcoming cup of tea at both ends.

Just a bit pricey for non NT members (4 young adults)

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.

Lydford Castle (2 ½ 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.

Cholwell Farm and Riding Stables (2 ½ miles)

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

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).

Tavistock (5 ½ miles)

Big by Dartmoor standards, Tavistock is a town that seems to have everything - fancy restaurants, a historic market, a cinema, lots of shops and some good attractions, too. Plenty to do here on a rainy day.

Market Town

Lovely to wander around. Independent shops and market stalls. Beautiful river to walk along. Easy to walk into the town or the other way to the larger supermarkets for essentials. We really enjoyed our low key English holiday.

Tavistock - A bit of everything!

What a lovely place! Big enough to have shops like Boots and other high street chains but small enough to retain a independent feel with little boutique gift shops. It made a refreshing change after 5 solid days of holiday gift shops selling mugs and teatowels, to find somewhere that sold normal things!! We still don't know what a pannier market is, even having visited!!! Nice though!

Tavistock

Bustling market town with many independent shops. The Pannier Market is open from Tuesday to Saturday with different stalls each day. Tuesdays are good for bric a brac and antiques. Every other Saturday there is an award winning Farmer's Market in the square. Also an award winning cheeserie. A great place for foodies.

Tavistock is a lovely town with loads of interesting little shops. It's a great way to while away a couple of hours, with a leisurely lunch of course, before heading up on to the moor itself.
