For the active, or simply if you want to admire it's stunning scenery, Dartmoor itself offers walking, riding and fishing.  if you're drawn to the coast, then there are unrivalled sights less than an hour away by road such as beautiful cliff walks, hidden coves and exhilarating sailing in famous estuaries such as Salcombe and Newton Ferrers.

The cities of Exeter and Plymouth are also easily reached, as are countless excellent restaurants, and a particularly wide variety of places of historic interest, many of them National Trust properties such as Compton Castle, Killerton House, Cotehele (just over the border into Cornwall), and the very unusual and interesting Castle Drogo, right on Dartmoor itself.

The outstandingly beautiful area of woodland and riverbank (an SSSI) below the cottages is also available for guests to walk and picnic in - a rare privilege.
