The ancient stannary town of Tavistock is just 3½ miles away and possesses World Heritage status, and has a unique range of beautiful independent boutiques and shops offering amazing locally produced food. The famous pannier market is well worth a visit and there are a good selection of cafés and restaurants. Or why not enjoy an evening at The Wharf watching a wide variety of theatrical productions by local and national theatre groups?

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in the south of England, with ancient woodland, high granite tors and vast tracts of rolling moorland.

Golf, fishing and horse riding are all available close by, or why not visit Dartmoor Zoo which inspired the film ’We Bought a Zoo’ or enjoy a day out at the famous Eden Project? Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
