  • Saturday morning breakfast at Taylors.
  • Wild swimming in a pool on the River Tavy.
  • Walk to the top of Sourton and be awestruck by the 360 view from North Devon to Plymouth Sound.
  • Lunch on local shellfish and crisp white wine at the Beachhouse on South Milton Sands.
  • Cream tea at Hotel Endsleigh having explored their beautiful gardens.
