Leave the car behind and head off for some lovely country walks from Dolbeare Park and maybe end up at a pub for a refreshing drink. Alternatively drive a short distance for even more choices of places to walk.

 

Walk 1 - 20 minutes

Turn right out of the main entrance. At the Tartendown corner turn right down the lane towards Cutivett. Take the first right again (opposite the first house on the left - North Park). and follow the narrow lane which comes right up behind the site. Return either by entering the Paddock by the top gate - please close the gate after you - or carry straight on until you hit the road. A right turn leads back to the site.

 

Walk 2 - 30 minutes

Turn left at the main entrance and where the road bends right, carry straight on past Tri-Acre Kennels. At Wotton Cross turn left past the three cottages and on down the hill. Over the hedge to your right is the Lynher Valley. At Skelton Farm turn left and follow the lane through the attractive Penquite hamlet. Again when you come to the top of the lane, you can return through the Paddock or go left and return by the road.

 

Walk 3 - 50 minutes with an additional 20 minute extension if desired

Go right to Tartendown Cross. Either follow the (obscured) footpath sign straight ahead across the field (best views in the area from the crest of the field) or go straight on the main road and take the first left twice to reach the same point. Then follow the lane down through Brightor and to the bottom. Turn left along the lane to Lantallack Cross and the first left past the white cottage and up the lane which leads back to Tartendown Cross.

This is a really beautiful walk. If you do it in reverse, you must make sure you turn up the lane to Brightor from the bottom road, even though it might look like an entrance to a farm.

There is a very pleasant 20 minute extension to this walk. After following the lane through Brightor and to the bottom, go straight across instead of turning left. This takes you along a pretty wooded lane. At the next junction turn left back on yourself and you get back to Lantallack Cross, where you go straight across to Tartendown Cross. At Tartendown Cross, turn right and Dolbeare Park is a short walk up the road on the left.

 

Walk 4 - an hour or much longer if you stop at the pub!

A circular walk to Landrake Village can be taken by going right out of Dolbeare Park to Tartendown Cross and then left down the lane past the nursery. At the end of the lane, Lantallack Cross, turn left again and this will bring you to the A38 opposite the village. Cross by the footbridge and admire the view of Dartmoor! Walk into the village and the Bullers Inn pub can be found on the Square.

On the way back, cross by the footbridge, start along the main Pound Hill road to Dolbeare Park, but take the right hand fork after 100 yeards. Half a mile further on you come to Wotton Cross where you turn left to come back in front of Tri-Acre Kennels and Dolbeare Park is just a short distance on the right.

 

Walk 5 - 40 minute walk each way

If you fancy a pleasant drink or lunch, then head to the Notter Bridge Inn adjacent to the River Lynher. A lovely walk from Dolbeare Park but a fairly steep hill on the return. Turn left at the main entrance and where the road bends right, carry straight on past Tri-Acre Kennels. At Wotton Cross, continue straight across and just keep going straight for about a mile down the hill. At the end of the road, turn left and take the bridge over the River Lynher and the pub can be seen on your left. For the adventurous, there are lots of other footpaths from here but we recommend that you have a decent map.
