Explore

Situated in the dramatic Teign Valley, in the north east of the Dartmoor National Park, with its superabundance of stunning places to explore, from the extensive wilderness of the open moorland and breathtaking tors, to the ancient wooded valleys and wild rolling rivers.

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.

Wild Swimming

The River Teign is a short walk from your door. Take a dip in its cool waters, enjoy its wildlife and scenery and the irridescent turquoise of a kingfisher flashing by (not to mention dippers, otters, goosanders, etc.)

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

Cycling

We have a pool of kids’ and adults’ bikes that you are very welcome to use. 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.

Beach Trip

Both north and south Devon have some of the country’s best beaches. Check out the surf report and decide which way to go.

Our favourite is Bantham (45 minutes drive).

After a day in the surf, settle down with a BBQ, or fish and chips, and enjoy the setting sun.
