Riding on Dartmoor

Star gazing
See the night sky as nature intended. There is no light pollution at Lake Farmhouse, just a pitch black sky, bright twinkling stars and the Milky Way to admire. When there is a full moon there is enough moonlight to wander around the garden without a torch.

Fishing on the river Torridge
Famous for its fly fishing where salmon, sea trout and brown trout can all be caught. Fishing permits for the river can be arranged on a daily basis.

Dragon Archery
Themed archery ranges in covered bays. Start in the practice area then move on to shoot the dinosaurs, knights and Orcs before the final challenge of confronting the red dragon. An excellent family day out.

The Ruby Country trail
Relaxing walks through the countryside of Cookbury, Hatherleigh and Sheepwash.

Guided walks on Dartmoor
We can arrange guided two hour walks on Dartmoor, with good company, history and facts along the way.
