Explore this remarkable spot in South Devon
You’ll love stepping away from the busy day-to-day at Great Plantation.
The peaceful surroundings, breathtaking outlook, and fresh woodland scents make a trip here something you’ll want to keep as a regular slot in the diary.
The seven-mile loop which forms part of the Templer Way trail is decorated with grassy paths and towering trees, where you’ll gaze admiringly at the different species of birds flitting from one branch to another.
The dog will thrive here
Maybe you’re looking for new routes for you and the dog to explore?
Throwing their favourite ball or newfound collection of sticks will become part of their regular routine as you’re accompanied by the joyful sounds of singing birds and rustling wildlife.
They’ll also love making new friends with other dogs that come here for their daily ventures!
Stop off for a delicious pub lunch
By now, you’ve probably worked up an appetite for some traditional pub grub. Just a nine-minute drive from Great Plantation is The Red Lion Inn, a delightful pub in the nearby village of Tedburn St Mary.
If the sun’s out, we suggest making yourself comfortable on one of the tables outside with a refreshing pint, as you decide on what you’d like from their menu.
We suggest starting off with the Asian king prawns that are bursting with flavour, followed by a hearty Philly cheesesteak which comes with a generous helping of homemade coleslaw on the side.
Perhaps something a bit lighter is more ideal? The grilled halloumi is simply divine, and a serving of sweet potato fries is a must before you set off home.
You’ll be back for more peaceful strolls
Great Plantation will be your new sanctuary for some quiet time away from the modern world. Just shut off the phone, dog in tow, and connect with the charming wildlife.
