Local Area Information


Dartmoor!!! There really is so much to explore and see from beautiful open spaces, to the magnificent granite Tor’s which rewards you with amazing uninterrupted views! If you want to really stretch your legs why not try High Willhays, the highest point in Dartmoor. It stands at over 2000 ft above sea level or neighbouring Yes Tor is not such a challenge but still worth the hike . Both are less than a ten minutes  drive from the cottage. Take a picnic and your swimsuits you can have a refreshing wild swim in Cullever Steps pool! 

I so today you decide you would like to walk through a woodland we have everything here on your doorstep, there is the world famous Tarka Trail which you can access in Sticklepath. Also Abbeyford wood is well worth a visit as beautiful pathways take you through a shaded wood. Picnic tables are available to rest and enjoy another picnic.

You have recovered from walking High Willhays, so let’s go for a bike ride. There are many different cycle paths around the local area however the Granite Way is pretty special. The paths are mostly flat with a good surface. Enjoy the birds singing, watch the ponies, cattle and shee
