Panoramic view from Mamhead towards the Exe Estuary

Just five minutes from both the A38 and A380, Mamhead is a perfect sanctuary for a dog walk, family stroll, or just to enjoy some peace. 

Make up your own route or choose from two waymarked walks to be rewarded with breathtaking views over the Exe estuary and along to the Jurassic Coast.

Once part of the Stover Estate, Great Plantation is located just north of the market town of Newton Abbot in the heart of South Devon.

Explore this mixed woodland which is home to roe deer, woodland birds, and the rare pearl-bordered fritillary butterfly. 

River and conifer trees

Bellever Forest is an unmissable stop on your visit to Dartmoor National Park. Explore one of several waymarked walking trails, discover incredible archaeology, take in the breathtaking views from Bellever Tor, or enjoy a relaxing picnic on the riverbank surrounded by native Dartmoor ponies.*
