WALK TO - The walks from the doorstep are just wonderful! A paradise for dogs, there are long and short walks to either the river where you are more than likely to spot a kingfisher, otter or deer, or a more sedate stroll to the nearby pub, which happily welcomes dogs, and even offers them a little treat!
CYCLE TO - Join the famous Tarka Trail cycle route in Torrington, which will take you to Bideford and beyond.
DRIVE TO - The historic town of Torrington, with its shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions including the world famous Dartington Crystal Centre, and RHS Rosemoor is just a short scenic 5 mile drive. Other interesting places nearby, and worth a visit, include the quaint fishing village of Clovelly, and the coastal villages and towns such as Westward Ho!, Bude, Croyde and Saunton where you can spend the day surfing or just sunbathing.
