Just across the river Teign from us is Fingle Forest, Recently Acquired by the Woodland Trust with miles of beautiful walks. Also nearby is Dunsford Woods a Site of Special Scientific Interest, because of its exceptional flora and fauna. At certain times of the year there are snowdrops wild daffodils, early purple and spotted orchids and a carpet of bluebells.
For children and grown-ups there are swings, a tree house, dens, wild woods and a stream.
For wild swimmers, there is the river Teign (1/4 mile) and the best pool in the river is about 3/4 mile from Clifford Bridge nearby, or drive to Fingle Bridge (3 miles), where there is deep pool swimming a mile up the river from there.
Fishing in the River Teign-Permits available locally.
For keen walkers/cyclists, there are miles of woodland glades and you can walk westwards along the river to Fingle Bridge and beyond to Castle Drogo, or Eastwards to Steps Bridge, or simply wander through the forests.
Stargazing / bird watching there are no street lights and light pollution is low. There are many varieties of flora and fauna, so don't forget to bring your camera, binoculars or telescope.
