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.
