Magical walks on either side of the Teign valley. The clear waters bubbling over rocks make it the perfect place to have a splash around. Also a wonderful pub next to the bridge makes the perfect start or end to an energetic hike or simply a place to sit and enjoy the history of the beautiful bridge and valley.

A pub that positively oozes history- there are connections from Neolithic man through to Dad’s Army. We always enjoy the slightly disparaging attitude they take towards one of the pillars as being ‘only’ Roman!! The food and beer are absolutely first class.

On the outskirts of our local town Chagford, Fernworthy reservoir is a wonderful place to explore. The circular walk around the water is a tranquil option if you prefer to stay off the open moor. The surrounding woodland of tall pine trees is also a very attractive walk or perfect for riding bikes along the trails.

A friendly pub/restaurant serving delicious food either in the relaxed environment of the bar by the open fires or in the more formal setting of the restaurant with an open air courtyard. The cosy library can also be used for group bookings if you fancy dining in privacy.

Our local town of Chagford is an old Stannary town with artisan shops, galleries and pubs/restaurants a plenty. It is a small close knit community and there are always friendly faces around to answer any questions. The river fed open air pool in the summer months is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the natural water of the Teign.

Set on the banks of the river Teign this is a wonderful place to relax and cool off in the summer months. This is the largest river fed open air pool in Devon and therefore enjoys minimal chemicals so is very gentle on your skin and eyes.

Fantastic easy cycling/walking for young and old..... The Granite Way is an 11 mile cycle and walkway running between Okehampton and Lydford along the north western edge of Dartmoor. It is mostly traffic free, largely following the course of the former Southern Region railway line. ... For example, close to the Okehampton end of the route is Meldon Quarry.

Beautiful 19th Century water powered forge. Demonstrations of how the tools used to be made run every hour. It was originally used to produce agricultural and mining hand tools and at its peak produced around 400 edge tools a day.It remained an active foundry until 1960.
