The Area

Walk
There are some tried and tested walks for you to do. From 1 hour to 5. Feel free to use the O.S map too if you want to freestyle your own route. There is so much terrain here, rivers, moorland, fields, hills, reservoirs, beach and tors.

Ride
Depending on your bike, riding here is very diverse. Haldon Hill (20mins) is a great woodland park for off roading and you can hire bikes there. They also have a freestyle park, it’s good for all ages and levels. www.forestcyclehire.co.uk 01392 833768. Or you can use our Dartmoor cycling map.

Fish
Fly-fishing at the reservoirs – drop your day permit cash in the box and off you go. Private lessons can be arranged. Trout fishing all over – we like Tavistock lakes, www.tavistocktroutfishery.co.uk, as they have a good kids pond to fish in and Tavistock has a great pannier market.  Also Fingle Bridge Inn offers day permit to fish in the river Teign – totally gorgeous spot.

Golf
There are many courses in the National Park from the glorious Bovey Castle www.boveycastle.com to the Teign Valley www.teignvalleygolf.co.uk and Stover www.stovergolf.co.uk
