Dartmoor stroll

Walking is good for body, mind and soul, and where better to do it than in some of the most magical landscapes in the world. Explore the magnificence of Dartmoor's 950 square kms of awe inspiring granite tors, rugged wide open spaces, deep wooded valleys and fast flowing rivers. Whether a challenging trek across windswept moors, or just a relaxing stroll through secluded woods, you’ve come to the right place.

go wild swimming

The River Teign is a short walk away. Relax in the cool waters, enjoy the wildlife and scenery and the iridescent turquoise of a kingfisher flashing by.

The salmon leaps, one of the best wild swimming spots in the South West, is a stunning hour's walk away.

borrow bikes

 We have a range of kids and adult bikes that you are very welcome to borrow. Cycle up the track alongside the River Teign to chill out at the Fingle Bridge Inn with a pint and plate of cheesy chips.

If you need a bit more exercise, leave the bikes at the pub and carry on up the spectacular Teign Gorge to the National Trust's Castle Drogo for a cream tea.
