Nearest pub

Fox and Grapes Lifton (¼ mile)

A quaint village pub that's been done up for the 21st century with a bar and family-style restaurant. The locals love it for the Sunday Carvery and regular food nights. Visitors love that it caters for little ones and has a beer garden.

Nearest beach

This five mile walk follows fields and country lanes from Lifton to Launceston. It should take you about two hours to walk and you can park on Fore Street, Lifton, where the walk starts. Click the Visit Dartmoor website link for further details.

Nearest town

Lifton (¼ mile)

Almost nudging the border of Cornwall, Lifton lies in the folds of the hilly Devon countryside. Despite the fact that Lifton is a small village, it has two major attractions to boast. The first, The Fairground Heritage Centre, is a magical exploration of the history of fairground rides and includes some mesmerizing examples of steam-driven carousels. Holding an entirely different appeal is the nearby Roadford Lake; 730 acres of water draws anglers, watersports enthusiasts, ramblers and cyclists throughout the year.

You just can't beat pick your own Strawberries, they taste gorgeous and with a traditional farm shop alongside that sells everything you could possibly want, with the added bonus of it all being locally sourced and home-grown, you have to pay them a visit.

A Farm Shop with a difference.

Whether you want coffee and cake, a full blown roast lunch, a Cornish pasty or Saffron buns - this is the place - the cafe is open every day (you will need to get there early for Sunday lunch). Cooked on the premises the pies, pastries and cakes are to die for. The farm shop always has a good selection of fresh seasonal produce and the butcher's counter has a wide variety of locally farmed meat. For those of you with a cold box there are also pasties, pies, veg and fruits available from the freezer. Well worth a quick detour off the A30.

September 2015

A quirky little train journey! We were glamping at Western Meadows (near New Mill Farm Park) and caught the quaint little steam train from the Farm Park into the town of Launceston for a look around. The children loved the 2 mile journey through countryside, it really did feel like we were stepping back in time.
