Places to visit while in Devon                                                                       Follow southyeofarm on Twitter

Some of the people who come on our courses make time to top and tail it with a few days holiday.  The farm is on the Dartmoor fringe and the Devon coast is a short drive away.  Here are some suggestions you might like to put on your "must visit" list.

Lydford Gorge - one of our favourite walks, complete with waterfall, Devil's Cauldron and tea shop. Thank goodness for the National Trust

Docton Mill - the tea shop (complete with beautiful gardens) to stop at after your walk on the coastal path round Hartland Quay

Northcott Mouth - a National Trust beach, dog friendly, full of mussel covered rocks, cliffs and a caravan serving snacks owned by a dog lover

Finch Foundry - if you're interested in the old crafts, a fascinating place

Okehampton castle - mentioned in the Domesday book, a romantic ruin worth exploring

Eden Project - not much more than an hour away

There's the whole of Dartmoor to enjoy - where do you start?

Castle Drogo - The big local National Trust property

Our local town of Hatherleigh, with its shops, pubs, medical centre, church and pottery

North Tawton - known as the home of the poet laureate Ted Hughes, and for us, the best fish and chip shop bar none (Graylings)

Chagford - for the best general stores anywhere - and there are two of them

Places no more than an hour away which we love, include: Boscastle, Padstow, Ashburton, Bovey Tracey (fabulous Devon Guild of Craftsmen centre selling world class craft), Tavistock, Appledore... the list goes on and on.
