About the neighborhood
Many beautiful beaches: Bigbury with its beautiful expanses of sand. At low tide you can walk over to Burgh Island, and come back on the sea tractor if you get caught out by the tide! A great place for surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, body boarding. Here you will find the Discovery Surf School. Bantham: a continuation of the vast expanse of sand at Bigbury, but separated at high tide by the Avon estuary. Many families with small children come here. Thurlestone: A lovely sandy beach - at its far end it becomes South Milton Sands, and there is a cafe there. If you walk from Thurlestone towards Bantham, along the coast next to the golf course, you will come to some delightful beaches and coves. Mothecome and Wonwell beaches: delightful beaches each on opposite sides of the Erme estuary. Mothecome is a private beach, open to the public on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Dartmoor: Widecombe-in-the-moor: The drive here gives you spectacular views Hound Tor: Great for climbers! And great circular walks Dartmeet: Where several branches of the Dart meet. Walk up river from the busy restaurant there, and find yourself in a beautiful and tranquil river setting. Holne: A lovely village with tea-room and great walks down to the Dart. Blackdown Hills: Peaceful wooded Avon valley 1 mile from Colmer, with river and ancient Iron Age fort. Steam train from Buckfastleigh to Totnes along picturesque route following river Dart. Round Robin trip: by boat up the estuary to Dartmouth, steam train, and open top double decker bus. Start at Dartmouth or Totnes. Pennywell Farm and Woodlands theme park for children. Plymouth Aquarium: Allegedly the best in the country. Golf courses at Bigbury, Dartmouth and Thurlestone.
