Take on a thrilling adventure!

Within the breathtaking landscapes of the south Devon countryside is where you’ll discover Harcombe, a delightful and truly gorgeous retreat within Haldon Forest Park.

Here, you’ll escape the modern world and thrive as you reconnect with nature.

We think you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch at The Ley Arms, an 11-minute drive away, just before you begin your trek to give you an energy boost.

Grab a table in the beer garden if the sun’s out, the relaxed and tranquil feeling taking over as you sip on a Devon-made Lyme Bay pink grapefruit gin.

But what will you choose from the menu? The Thai green vegetable curry with jasmine rice is a tasty option, and the handmade burger with west country cheddar and Devon blue cheese is perfect for a refuelling meal.

Start your walk around beautiful woodland

When you arrive, you’ll immediately be greeted by a fresh forest breeze that rustles the trees, and the beautiful sound of tweeting birds to keep you company.

The forest isn’t waymarked for walking, so follow any direction that takes your fancy – you’ll be mesmerised by the stunning scenery until the end!

Be sure to also take plenty of snapshots along the trail you choose, a superb way to keep hold of the wonderful experiences you’ll discover at Harcombe.

Keen to discover a new horse riding trail?

The ten miles of waymarked network of trails will become your new route for off-road riding, exploring the wonderful wildlife, and watching the birds fly above your gaze.

Get in touch and register with the Haldon Forest Rangers for all the details, and be sure to download the online horse riding trail map before setting off.

Perhaps you’re looking for a local group of horse riders to join? Ask the Rangers about Haldon4Horses who work with the Rangers on further development for horse riding.

You’ll make new friends and contribute to the wonderful work here.

Fall for the warm atmosphere

You’ll want to take the dog next time, and for all of your future treks at Harcombe.

Throw their new favourite stick as they also get acquainted with the gorgeous wildlife, a perfect reason that'll keep bringing you back.
