Stand on top of the The Dewerstone

The high moors of Dartmoor National Park are fringed by stunnng steep-sided wooded valleys and gorges cut by rivers that run from the high ground to the coast. The Dewerstone Valley is one of the best.

Great Mis Tor and Great Staple Tor are particularly beautiful and provide massive views across Dartmoor, the Tamar Valley and Cornwall.


Visit the National Trust's Buckland Abbey

Cornwall's Whitsand Bay

Not well known but a match for any of Cornwall's best coastline. Extraordinary place, especially at low tide.


Lopwell Dam and the Tamar Discovery Trail

Beautiful riverside setting. At low tide, wander across the causeway on the Tamar Discovery Trail.
