The wild beauty of Dartmoor
Wild, open moorlands and deep river valleys, with a rich history and rare wildlife.
The wonders of Widecombe
Widecombe is a busy little village. A huge church, known as the Cathedral in the moor, at the centre. Next door is the wonderful National Trust village hall building and shop. Across the road is the working Forge where you can watch the blacksmith at work. A number of gift shops. Cafe on the green serving cream teas. And there are two pubs. One in the village and one a little walk down the hill.
If you’re looking for peace and tranquility, this is the place. Sit on the garden bench and watch the birds swoop or walk up into the wilds.
A few suggestions of the many walks in the area
Easy, for all the family
Drive to Challacombe from Lower Blackaton, walk along the flat, straight path. Cross over onto the edge of the river and you’ll find a medieval ruin. Approx 3 mins by car, 30 mins walking. Another family favourite is to drive to Bone Hill. Those who want to climb can climb while the others can watch from a picnic spot. Bone Hill is just the other side of Widecombe. Approx 10 mins drive.
The river path
Drive to and park at Badgers Holt. Cross the road from the car park by the bridge. Follow the river path round. You’ll find some beautiful, grassy, still picnic spots or if you want a bit more excitement carry on walking to a faster running river area and bolders. Approx 15 mins by car, 10 mins walking.
Circular walk, 10k
Turn left out of the gate, up the hill then down the hill. Turn right along a straight road to Challacombe. Walk up past Challacombe, over the hill and along into the Tin mine. Walk back via Grimspound, up over Hameldown, down the path and back to the house up the road. Approx 2 hours.
