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)

Nearest walk

A moorland romp through the storylands of Dartmoor. It's inspired many a tale of spooky goings-on and now you can encounter the remains and feel the chill for yourself on a guided walk.

Nearest town

With the heather-clad hills and valleys of Dartmoor dominating the skyline, North Bovey is a magnet for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The word picturesque barely does North Bovey justice; the village green, with its traditional pump and stone cross, is surrounded by 18th century thatched cottages. The 13th century pub, the Ring of Bells, is the ideal opportunity to linger over a drink and soak up the surroundings.

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.

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.

The last castle to be built in England. This remarkable 20th Century fortress stands high above the Teign Gorge on Dartmoor.

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!

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).

One of the great gateways to Dartmoor and a pretty market town, Moretonhampstead is surrounded by jaw-droppingly lovely countryside. Once you’ve exhausted yourself hiking, biking, riding or climbing around the wilds of Dartmoor, you’ll find Moretonhampstead the perfect place to rejuvenate with great pub and café food. The village is utterly unspoilt; friendly locals and a tranquil atmosphere make it impossible to resist.

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.
