As stated on the Tarka Trail website "The Tarka Trail is a 180 mile, figure of eight walking and cycling trail that follows the route travelled by Tarka the Otter in the famous novel by Henry Williamson. The Tarka Trail will take you through ancient villages, wooded valleys, along the banks of rivers, high over moorland with spectacular views of Dartmoor and Exmoor and along dramatic sea cliffs and vast expanses of beautiful beaches"
Still under construction in places, this is a new walking, mountain-biking and horse-riding trail. It uses mostly quiet lanes and public bridleways. The intention is to link the Granite Way with the Ruby Way.
The waymarked trail takes you from Dartmoor National Park at Meldon through West Devon and into Ruby Country, along a dismantled railway track and into our nearby Cookworthy Forest.
We do have some horse facilities available on-site should you wish to bring your horse(s) and have a Devon riding adventure.
Should you wish to do this please contact Sara to discuss your needs to ensure we can accomodate you...
