The West Country region
In an area of naturally beautiful coast, countryside, moorland and award winning beaches - the South Hams has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is typified by rolling hills, wooded river valleys, patchwork fields, picturesque villages and sandy beaches.
There are a wide variety of cultural attractions, activities and sports in the area:
The South Hams has a rich and ancient heritage. The towns of TOTNES, DARTMOUTH, SALCOMBE and KINGSBRIDGE all have a unique character and are well worth exploring. Of particular note are the two towns nearest the Barn; Salcombe can either be reached by road or passenger ferry from East Portlemouth. The town is perched on the cliffs facing Bolt Head and is a world renowned centre for sailing and watersports. Alternatively Kingsbridge at the top of the estuary is a vibrant market town, with a good variety of local shops, pubs and restaurants.
BEACHES - From sandy surf beaches to rock pools and coves, there are beaches for all tastes and pursuits.
Particularly recommended are the surf beaches of Bigbury and Bantham, with surf at one end and rock pools at the other. Also recommended are the award winning Blackpool Sands and the miles of fine pebbles at Slapton Sands. At Salcombe there are the lovely South & North Sands Beaches. Catch the ferry from Salcombe to East Portlemouth and you will be rewarded with more beautiful beaches like Sunny Cove. Bigbury and Blackpool Sands have excellent organic Venus Cafes at which to lunch or grab a coffee. From Bigbury you can go to Burgh Island and eat at the traditional Pilchard Inn.
ADVENTURE PARKS One of the largest in the South West is at Woodlands Adventure Park. This is 20 minutes drive away from the Barn and boasts enough entertainment to keep everyone amused (for a reasonable price) for the day (at least).
BOAT HIRE - For fishing, sailing or leisure can be hired from either Salcombe or Dartmouth.
BOAT TRIPS & FERRIES - run regularly from Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe across all of the estuaries.
CINEMA - a restored local cinema (the Reel) is running in Kingsbridge.
FISHING - a number of coarse fisheries, game fishing for sea trout and salmon on the River Avon or sea fishing for bass from local beaches/boats. Also short Mackerel trips run out of Salcombe and for the more adventurous, deep sea trips.
Gardens, Abbeys, Castles and Houses - abound, but most notably are the Gardens at Soultram House, the Abbey at Buckfastleigh and Castles at Totnes and Dartmouth.
GOLF - there are several local courses; of special note is the links course at Bigbury, with spectacular cliff views from the course over the Avon Estuary towards Burgh Island
NATURE RESERVES - Slapton Ley is only 20 minutes away, while the Dartmoor National Park is 20 minutes inland and caters for horse riding, canoeing and other outdoor pursuits
STEAM RAILWAYS - at Buckfastleigh along the River Dart and at Kingswear up the Dart Estuary to Paignton
WALKS - there are numerous country, woodland and spectacular coastal walks along the cliff tops
