Walking

Dartmoor offers some of the most outstanding walking in the country, with many routes accessible directly from the farm. Whether you are looking for a day's moorland hiking or a manageable family walk there are beautiful local routes for every day of the week and for all abilities.

Haytor, Houndtor, Widecombe, Grimspound , Jays Grave and the exquisite Bovey Valley are all within a day's walking distance of the farm. Hayne down and the famous Bowermans nose, which provide the stunning backdrop for the farm, makes an exciting family expedition with fabulous panoramic views or an evening's walk to enjoy the sunset for the more energetic. (Sunset not guaranteed!)

We can supply packed lunches on request if you are planning a day's walk or ride, or we can advise you on the fantastic local routes incorporating a delicious pub lunch and taking in stunning scenery of rugged moorland and steep wooded valleys. Guided walks can be arranged on request.

We welcome dogs in both the holiday cottage and the Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
