Lake Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast

Devon has a lot more to offer than cream teas and thatched cottages. It has two cities, two coast lines and two moors so its hardly surprising that that there is something to do all year round.

In addition to cycling, playing golf and visiting gardens there are plenty of attractions within an hour's drive of Lake Farmhouse.

Dartington Crystal, Great Torrington
Story of Dartington crystal with visual theatre and timeline. Live demonstrations of glass blowing where you can see into the factory and watch the craftsmen at work from an elevated position. Amazing shop with seconds and many bargains.

Tree surfing, near Tavistock
Not for the faint hearted this one but a real sense of achievement awaits. Ladders, rope bridges, zip wires and walkways take you through the tree tops in an area of outstanding beauty. Scary but fun!

Lydford Gorge, near Tavistock
Amazing abundance of wildlife and plants. Beautiful woodland sculptures made from natural materials. Stunning waterfalls and a walk over the bubbling and tumbling Devils Cauldron. The walking is not easy as it includes rugged terrain, vertical drops, and steep walks. Good shoes are must.

Yarner Trust, Welcombe
Sustainable and creative living courses near the north west coast of Devon. There are many one day courses on various subjects. Excellent company and courses given by enthusiastic people. Lovely place to visit and stunning coastal walks and scenery.

A great day out with lots to do. Shopping is plentiful and varied - look down the side streets for the more unusual places. The cathedral and the surrounding cafes are a quiet haven. There are 14th century underground passages to explore and plenty of places for lunch. The quayside is a lovely place to relax and watch the world go by.
