Dartmoor National Park

The Dartmoor National Park is a unique destination, boasting a rich tapestry of natural attractions. Found in Devon County, this former expanse of countryside is a famed parkland now, welcoming thousands of intrepid travelers annually. The untamed landscape here is peppered with soaring massifs, azure lochs, vast moorlands, deep valleys and historic attractions. Aptly dubbed as the land of contrasts, this parkland astounds visitors with it eclectic bouquet of offerings and recreational opportunities. Walk amidst spectacular environs along the Meldon Viaduct, rekindle your love for history with visits to Fernworthy Stone Circle, Foggintor Quarry and Merrivale Prehistoric Settlement, or ascend heights on the slopes of Hound Tor, Pew Tor and the Great Links Tor. With the mélange of sights and landscapes found here, Dartmoor National Park will leave you spoilt for choice.


Taking its name from scientist Otto Overbeck, who lived here between 1928 and 1937, this elegant Edwardian house is now a museum containing Overbeck's eclectic collections of shells, photographs, drawings, model boats, toys, curios, and displays on local maritime history and wildlife. There is a secret room just for children, with dolls, tin soldiers, and other toys, plus a ghost hunt. Outside you'll find a lovely subtropical garden with many rare plants, trees and shrubs. There are spectacular views over the estuary creeks and beaches to Salcombe, which looks quite picturesque in the distance. The garden is not wheelchair accessible, but the ground floor of the museum, shop, and tea-room, are. Braille guides for the museum are available, as well as a Braille ghost hunt.

Woodlands Family Theme Park

Near the town of Totnes, Woodlands is full of thrills and spills and well deserves its many awards. From the Alpine Dash to the Tornado the emphasis is on action and adventure for all ages. For rainy days there is a huge indoor complex with venture centers, a Circusdrome, ball-pools and inflatables, soft play for tinies and drop slides. Outside, the grounds bristle with commando-type courses and cafes. There is a farm area, with hands-on access, boating lakes and a wildlife walkabout, if you can pry the children away from the rides. Woodlands has won five national awards and if you can't tear yourself away, there's even a campsite attached. Wheelchair users need a strong pusher, as it's very hilly.


One of the least altered medieval houses in England, Cotehele was owned by the Edgcumbe family for 600 years. They moved on to Mount Edgcumbe House in Tudor times, using Cotehele for family getaways and to show off to visitors, who marveled at this medieval gem, just as we do today. The ancient granite walls house a fine collection of textiles, tapestries and early oak furniture, while the chapel contains the oldest working domestic clock in England. Warning - Cotehele weaves a magic spell, so that once you've been there you want to go back again and again. The open times of the house and the restaurant vary greatly every week.

National Marine Aquarium

This is Britain's largest and most up-to-date aquarium, with many spectacular underwater displays. A visit to this ultra-modern center alongside Sutton Harbour on the historic Barbican will be an unforgettable adventure, with wide screen viewing windows giving you an amazing close-up view of the fish. The most spectacular displays have to be the sharks at feeding time, but there are many fascinating exhibits, including Europe's largest collection of seahorse species.

Plymouth Pavilions

This large venue is a very versatile event hall, capable of hosting many different sorts of activities. International sporting events, particularly snooker and basketball, are held here and there are also facilities for orchestral concerts, pop and rock music and light entertainment, with a concert hall holding up to 3,000 people. There is also a skating rink and leisure pool on the same site.
