Lundy lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic ocean meets the Bristol Channel with nothing between it and America, a granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide. In the hubbub of the modern world it is a place apart, peaceful and unspoilt.
Moors and Tors
Walking for health and happiness on Dartmoor in all weathers and over all terrains with me, Liz Miall, an enthusiastic local guide.
I am fully qualified and experienced, insured and first aid trained. Member of the British Mountaineering Council and Mountain Training Association. I have lived on and loved Dartmoor since childhood when I would nag my long-suffering father to take me out on the moor so we could “explore up a river”. These walks are my spirit and my strength; through them I never stop exploring.
Museum of Dartmoor Life
The Museum of Dartmoor Life is a vibrant centre of community life and lifelong learning. The Museum boasts an outstanding collection telling the story of 5000 years of Dartmoor and will bring to life some of the history of Dartmoor and the surrounding Okehampton area.
North Hall Manor
The site of North Hall known as “Widecombe’s deserted Medieval Manor” lies just to the north of the village green, nestling under the gaze of Widecombe’s magnificent Church Tower. Sadly all that remains now of this once imposing site is the over grown Moat and Apple Pound surrounded by a dilapidated mix of farm buildings ranging from 1940’s milking parlour with dairy alongside livestock buildings.
Run Venture Running Hub
The Tamar Valley, the Devon coastline and the nearby 365 square miles of Dartmoor National Park offer some of the best trail and off-road running in the country. Having lived and worked in the area for twenty years we have got to know the trails pretty well and are happy to show them to you, whatever your level of fitness or standard. We know some great places to run and have a few tried-and-tested routes which we know you will love. We can provide a bespoke guided run, whether it is over the highest point on Dartmoor, High Willays or the dramatic coastal cliffs around Hope Cove.
