Ness beach

Excellent beach. Not for the unfit as quite a lot of steps involved in getting down/up.
Great for our dog and quiet in September. Cafe by the car park (cheapish parking charges)

A short three mile walk taking in some of the better known tors, starting in the lane above Lustleigh up the footpath into the woods. At the junction of two paths take the upper one and climb high above the River Bovey. At the end you will find Hunters Tor and the Ancient Hill Tor, follow the path down to the right and then take the dog leg to Peck Farm, returning to your car along the path on the lower slopes of the wood.

There’s a distinctly ‘des res’ feel about Chagford - lots of pretty art galleries, upmarket cafes and chi-chi shops. A relaxing place for an amble.

A lovely friendly village

Chagford is an ideal location for a holiday for touring Dartmoor etc.
Has three pubs all serving excellent food, lots of lovely shops and you would have no need to travel to buy provisions as there is everything you need in the village. Special mention must be made of the beautiful fruit and veg shop which although very small has lovely fresh produce and extremely friendly staff.

Castle Drogo (2 ¾ miles)

England's youngest castle, designed by Lutyens and built of Dartmoor granite with all the mod-cons of the 1920's. At 300 metres high, it catches the wildest of Dartmoor’s weather. Try a spot of croquet on the croquet lawn or amble through the garden and miles of walks in the Teign Gorge.

Beautiful gardens, but castle is a bit of a building site

Visited Castle Drogo on a beautiful sunny warm day. The gardens are superb and the castle very interesting but as extensive building works are in progress, it is difficult to judge how it would look in normal times.

castle drogo to fingle bridge

Although only built in 1910 well worth visit, a real reminder of past living with contents on display with handy guide book. The walk down to Fingle Bridge and return via the river is a must.

Last great manor house built in England

This grand house can be seen by a superb and fascinating tour. The history of Castle Drogo and its owners is a marvellous tale. Very pleasant walking offered as well.

Fabulous walks

Although the castle itself is closed at some times out of season (for cleaning, maintenance etc) the beautiful walks around the estate are always open. The walk down through the woodland and along the bottom of the gorge are breathtaking (literally, on the way back up!) - but there is the option of popping into the pub halfway around!

The Ring of Bells Inn (1 ¾ miles)

A popular Inn with a great selection of real ales and a menu created using locally sourced ingredients. Full removation took taken place following a devastating thatch fire in 2016 and the pub now has a fresh and modern feel.

Delightful thatched Dartmoor inn, where they stock local West Country ales. It's especially cosy in the evenings when the candles are lit. Dogs are welcome (except in the dining room).

Gidleigh Park (4 ½ miles)

An elegant award wining restaurant with an impressive wine cellar. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea this is a wonderful place to treat yourself.

Fabulous food - fantastic service

Gidleigh Park is tucked away up a long country drive - even the approach is stunning. The house itself instills an aura of calm, and the food is inspirational - perfect for a special celebration or party. Gidleigh Park's two Michelin stars are well deserved.

Fingle Bridge Inn (2 ¼ miles)

A welcome stop following a Teign River ramble - a pot of tea is just what is called for! Although a pub, restaurant and function room, as well as riverbank-based activities cater for everyone's needs.

Great find on the moor

This place doesnt suffer as badly as some of the other popular drinks stops on the moor and you will normally have no trouble in getting a table. The foods nothing to write home about but if you have been walking all day its hot and filling.


Rated 4 out of 5 stars

August 2011

The Fingle Bridge Inn is in a brilliant spot beside the River Teign and is the perfect stop off point for visitors to Castle Drogo who undertake the breathtaking Teign Gorge walk. Children and dogs are often found paddling in the shallows and the outside areas allow you to soak up the waterside atmosphere. It's unpretentious and traditional, definitely worth a visit.
