Water not your thing? no problem…


We are right next to Route 28 of the National cycling network which comes from Totnes, through Stokenham and on towards Salcombe ferry.

East Prawle Cycling Route: This is a classic bike route through superb and varied scenery, along a nice mix of green lanes and country roads. Enough incline to get the blood circulating, and superlative views to reward the effort. It is a 12 mile circular route over quiet country lanes; green lanes and bridleways. The terrain is moderate but some muddy stretches in wet weather. You can expect to encounter wildlife, local history and maritime history along the route. Map available in the walking folder in the guest lounge. AONB Dartmoor & Dartmoor also has an abundance of on and off road cycle routes.
