Out and About

The Linney is situated just over the River Tamar, the border between Devon and Cornwall which makes it very accessible for both counties.

As well as the lovely walks on your doorstep down to the river, it is just over an hour to the North Cornish coast and beaches of Rock, Padstow and Port Isaac (home of Doc Martin). To the south, the historic city of Plymouth is just half an hour away with shopping and many attractions on Plymouth Hoe and Plymouth Sound.

The lovely old market town of Tavistock is only a twenty minute drive and is famous for its award-winning pannier markets which are held regularly throughout the week.

The Tudor House of Cotehele owned by the National Trust is close by with its beautiful gardens and you can indulge in a traditional Cornish Cream Tea on a restored sailing barge moored at the quay.

The Tamar Trails Centre not far away offers an amazing array of activities whether on foot, bike or horse. They include canoeing on the Tamar River, Tree Surfing, a Zip Wire and a Tree Jump.

Dartmoor National Park covers an area of 368 square miles and is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England. To suit all tastes and abilities, Dartmoor also boasts a variety of cycle routes, both on and off road, making it as challenging as you want it. There is also horse-riding, climbing, letterboxing, geo-caching or kayaking.
