Cycling

Purpose built for mountain bikers is the Scadson freeride park, 7.3 miles away in Scadson woodlands. It has seven downhill trails, a beginner’s area and plenty of riding obstacles. Alternatively, try the Torbay Velopark, the outdoor closed road circuit.  

A popular straight route is to Newton Abbot, following the coast through Brixham and Paignton.


Walking

Join the Mansands Circular walk from our site and after two miles you have the option to join the coastal path which contours the natural, wild coastline, passing ragged cliffs and sandy beaches.

Berry Head National Nature Reserve walk is a gentle journey that’s rich in wildlife and where you’ll find Napoleonic war fort remains.


Things to try

Dip your toes in a natural saltwater rock pool and be ready as the tide comes in, for waves will splash over the Shoalstone Swimming Pool that’s built into the natural rocks at Brixham.

If you want to try coasteering, caving, gorge walking, rock climbing, canoeing, bushcraft or archery, then Adelong Outdoor Education are the people to contact.

Jump on board a real steam train with South Devon Railway. It’s an enchanting way to see the beautiful landscape and you could even drive a steam train.
