Out & About in Devon & Cornwall


The historic town of Tavistock situated on the picturesque River Tavy, is the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake and is only a short drive from Todsworthy with a wide range of unique and interesting shops, leisure centre, theatre, riverside park and restaurants.

Dartmoor National Park

A little further East takes you to the wild and rugged landscapes of  Dartmoor National Park. See Dartmoor ponies, and nature at every turn, odd little Dartmoor villages, castles, culture, local tradition and lots more. You can settle down at a Dartmoor pub, or find an idyllic spot to enjoy a picnic of your favourite food taking in the spectacular scenery.


Turn South from Tavistock and you will skirt along the edge of Dartmoor to the historic maritime city of Plymouth which has been the focal point of world maritime exploration for many hundreds of years. You can visit the National Marine Aquarium, take a river cruise, or visit historic houses and gardens. The Theatre Royal and the region’s largest Multiplex cinema provide a range of outstanding entertainment and there are many excellent restaurants around the Barbican and Waterfront.

South East Cornwall

Todsworthy Farm is ideally placed to explore South East Cornwall. From the bustling working port and sandy beaches of Looe to the old world charm of Polperro. You are not far from the wide open spaces of Bodmin Moor to the sheltered river valleys of the Tamar, Lynher and Fowey, there is something for everyone.

Further West

A little further afield you will find The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan and the city of Truro with its wonderful shopping, Cathedral and places to eat. While on the subject of food, Cornwall is blessed with a wonderful selection of restaurants and food producers throughout the county.

Cornwall’s Coast

Even now we haven’t mentioned the beaches and cliffs of the North and South coast, The Lizard, Lands End  and St Michaels Mount.

National Trust

There are 35 National Trust locations in Devon and a further 21 locations in Cornwall. The nearest being Cotehele, a classic Tudor house and gardens just a couple of miles away.

And even more........

Well that’s the first day sorted, what are you going to do for the rest of your stay? Maybe the Donkey Park or Morwhellam Quay. The list is never ending. Phew!!
