What we do

See where we walk

South Devon coast paths

We enjoy some of the best walks along the South Devon Coast Path, from Noss Mayo in the west, around to Salcombe on our southerly tip and onwards to Dartmouth in the east.

Our South Hams country

Deep green valleys between soft rounded hills, rivers extending from springs on Dartmoor National Park all the way to our estuaries and coast, and native hardwood forests are what make much of our countryside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The wilds of Dartmoor National Park

The wilds of Dartmoor is so different it is like stepping into another country. There are few limits and it is wild enough for the army to train on, but you can easily steer clear of those areas.

Five glorious estuaries

Five beautiful estuaries punctuate our South Hams. The Yealm at Noss Mayo, the Erme at Mothecombe, the Avon from Bantham up to Aveton Gifford, the Kingsbridge & Salcombe estuary which is a sunken valley (no river) and the Dart from Dartmouth up to Totnes the heart town of the South Hams.
