Dartmoor offers long lazy walks over the moors…our dogs loved it! Ferry trips to Dartmouth, which is more built up and great for gift shopping. The nature reserve in Slapton is also a beautiful walk with lots of wildlife to explore. Powell Family, October 2017
Trip via ferry from Dartmouth to Greenway and Coleton Fishacre, both NT, worth doing. Gynn Family, October 2017
Boat trips from Dartmouth to Greenway and the coastal trip were very good and commentary interesting, Great that all the boat trips are dog friendly. Isles Family, September 2017
Follow the winding narrow lanes and find some lovely villages. We have been to this area many times and it still retains its quaintness and seems a return to the past. Visit Bolberry and walk the coastal path and next to Bolberry is Hope Cove where you must have a cream tea at the Sun Bay Hotel. Delightful. Mr & Mrs Somerfield, September 2017
