Horses riding across Dartmoor


One of the best ways to discover Dartmoor is on horseback. If you’re a novice or a beginner there is a trekking centre close by offering an hour or two pony trekking. 

Whitelady waterfall


The Whitelady house dates back to the 1600’s. It was the farm house to the Manor hence its original name of Manor Farm. This was changed when the house was renovated to reflect it's position next to the Whitelady Waterfall in Lydford Gorge, the deepest gorge in the South West.

Dining room laid for a meal
