Sailing, cycling, riding and golf

  • Sailing: Both Dartmouth and Salcombe Regatta weeks take place in August and end with a bang with a fireworks display.
  • Cycling: There is a big cycling scene in Devon and we can arrange for you to spend a sunday morning with the mid Devon cycling club or talk to us about a guided trip to Dartmoor. As a family we love Haldon Forest Park, near Exeter (01392 834 251 / EX6 7XR). It has marked trails from beginner to advanced and you can hire bikes if you don’t have them with you.
  • Riding: If you would like to ride or pony trek there is a big choice locally but we recommend SRS Horse Training in Totnes (01803 762 750 / TQ9 6AR). They offer a relaxed and friendly environment for learning to ride, with qualified tuition from experienced instructors. Beginners and nervous riders are very welcome. Pony days are ideal for pony-mad kids, who can learn how to care for as well as ride their ponies.
  • Golf: If you want to play a round of golf all visitors are welcome at Dainton Park Golf, Ipplepen, which is only 2 miles away.
