Explore the glorious County of Devon. Ramble over rolling hills and into wooded valleys and gaze over the vast expanse of the moors. Splash in craggy coves and walk for miles on sandy beaches. Meander along rivers and enjoy breezy, wide-open lakes. Devon really does have it all for the nature lover!


Walks around the Devon countryside are abundant. There are lovely local walks just a stones-throw away from Nettle and Dock and lots more on Dartmoor, where every day you'll see something different.


Just on our doorstep, you can enjoy the unspoiled landscape of this amazing National Park. See the roaming Dartmoor ponies or indulge in a spot of wild swimming in one of the many rivers.

The Coast

Both south and north Devon coasts are a little over an hours drive from Nettle and Dock. A brilliant day trip where you can explore the rocky coves of the south or the sandy beaches of the north.


With plenty of nearby historic sites, unspoiled towns and villages there’s loads of interesting places to visit while you’re staying Nettle and Dock.

Castle Drogo

Visit this National Trust property. A dramatic castle overlooking the river Teign. Inspired by the rugged Dartmoor Tors that surround it, built by renowned 20th-century architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, it's really worth a visit!

RHS Rosemoor

RHS Rosemoor is around 35 minutes drive. Nestled in a valley, Rosemoor blends formal gardens and informal plantings to magical effect. It has a great restaurant cooking seasonal produce from their Gardens.

Lydford Gorge

One of our favourite places to visit. Owned by the National Trust, it boasts the deepest river gorge in the South West, with a 30m high waterfall. There are walks to suit different abilities. Best in fair weather and always check if it's open.
