Walkers

The vast network of quiet lanes, open countryside and beautiful coastal path, make North Devon and Cornwall the ideal location for walking holidays. With many of the old dis-used railway tracks having been converted into dedicated paths and cycle ways, including the Ruby, Tarka and Camel Trails, that are both ideal and interesting for both dedicated ramblers and for families with children.

Dunsdon Farm is the ideal location to base yourself whether for families on a gentle ramble, or hardened walkers who want to scale the many Torrs or Dartmoor.

Bude Canal


bude_canalThe Bude Canal comprised a mini-network of waterways on the Devon/Cornwall border. It is of considerable historic interest, featuring some of the most unusual and ingenious engineering of the canal-building era. The Aqueduct branch of the system, which is the length in the ownership of the Bude Canal Trust, was the original feeder arm for the whole system, although it was later also used as part of the general canal network.

The Bude Canal provides historic interest and is an important wildlife area. The 5-mile footpath along the old towpath gives an opportunity for all to enjoy this wonderful facility.

The canal can be easily accessed from Dunsdon, with a lovely peaceful walk up to the Tamar Lakes, where you can enjoy the wildlife and café at the Upper Tamar Lake.

Tarka Trail


The Tarka Trail is a pedestrian and cycle way that runs in a 180 mile figure-of-eight through landscapes little changed from those described by Henry Williamson in his classic 1927 novel Tarka the Otter.

It is a fantastic and sustainable way to explore from the coast, through deeply incised river valleys with ancient tangled woodland to the productive farmland and moorland higher up the catchments.

The Trail passes through towns such as Lynmouth, Barnstaple, Bideford, Torrington, Okehampton and Ilfracombe, and parts of it coincide with the South West Coast Path, the Two Moors Way and the Dartmoor Way.

Camel Trail


The Camel Trail is a recreational multi use trail, providing access to the beautiful Cornish countryside along a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. As the final leg of the Atlantic Coast Express journey from Waterloo, winding alongside the spectacular Camel Estuary, the line was immortalised in 'Betjeman's Cornwall' as "the most beautiful train journey I know".

The Camel Trail is carefully maintained, as it runs through both a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) the Camel Trail is run with conservation and the environment as a major consideration.

The Camel Trail is an 18 mile largely traffic free, surfaced and virtually level multi use trail which passes through some of the most spectacular countryside in the south west.

The trail hugs the Camel Estuary from Padstow to Wadebridge before joining the route through the deeply incised and beautifully wooded Camel Valley to Bodmin. At Bodmin yet another line, one of the most historic in the country, winds its way inland to the foot of Bodmin Moor where it comes to an end near Blisland, an extraordinarily pretty moorland village.
