Older children will love to explore the woods and lake, play table tennis, table football, pool or even put on a play in the games barn. There is also a perfect wild swimming spot on the River Teign 15 minutes walk from the cottage and the famous “salmon leaps” wild swim spot for the more adventorus. The National Trust runs a programme of activites. A favourite is Wild Tribe at Fingle Bridge, where children can make dens, learn survial skills such as friction fire lighting. We have just set up a letter boxing trail around Clifford Barton to help children explore the 50 hectares of woodland, lake and outdoor space at Clifford Barton.
