Things to do & places to go
Set in the Northwest corner of Dartmoor National Park, Bearslake Inn is surrounded by natural beauty and historical places to visit. But here are a couple of our favourite seasonal places to visit;
The last castle to be built in England, set above the Teign Gorge with dramatic views over Dartmoor. Castle Drogo boasts the highest national trust garden at over 900feet and some stunning architecture by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
Brentor is one of Dartmoor’s most impressive rock outcrops with St. Michael’s mount sitting proud at its top. With panoramic Dartmoor views this hill climb walk is a worthwhile investment for any avid walker.
Spectacular woodland walks along the Lyd gorge cumulating in a stunning 90ft waterfall. If you dare, walk the plank over the Devil’ Cauldron whirlpools.
This is one of the highest oak woods in Britain. The wood was one of the primary reasons for selection of the Dartmoor Special Area of Conservation and is said to have a fairy-tale feel and be inhabited by pixies.
Cotehele House & Gardens
Medieval house with a superb collection of textiles, armour and furniture set in extensive grounds and manicured gardens. Why not make a real day of it and take a boat trip from the Cotehele Quay along the river Tamar.
Surrounded by open moorland, Meldon is a breath taking Reservoir Lake situated 900ft above sea level. A Picnic on the banks will give you ample time to take in the sights, wildlife and fresh Dartmoor air.
