The south west edge of Dartmoor National Park is just a couple of miles away and the area is great for walking, river swimming and taking in this unique landscape. There are many outdoor activities, including great cycling, diving, climbing, surfing, swimming, scuba diving and sailing on the Devon and southern Cornish coast. The Drake's Trail cycle route passes close by site linking Tavistock to the north and Plymouth to the south. To reach it you pass through Cann Wood, less than a mile from Dartmoor Domes, and worth a visit in its own right for mountain bikers and walkers. For coastal walks, head for the well-signposted South West Coast Path, perhaps heading out from Bovisand Beach (10 miles from Dartmoor Domes). The stunning National Trust beach at Wembury is a beautiful spot for time on the beach and about the same distance, while, for surf, you'll need to head to Bantham, 20 miles away. It's only a 20-minute drive from your dome to the historic waterfront city of Plymouth, where there's all sorts of entertainment, including harbour boat tours and the National Marine Aquarium (0844 893 7938). Further afield the Eden Project (01726 811972), and Tintagel Castle are absolute musts while you're in the South West, both are a little over an hour's drive away.
Food & Drink
The closest place to get a bite to eat out is less than a mile away at The Farmyard Cafe (07711 583985), a slightly ramshackle little place that welcomes dog walkers, horseriders and offers a great-value menu of fry ups, burgers and, of course, cream teas. For the closest pub, you'll have to travel further. The Skylark Inn (01822 853258) is four miles away; a short drive or a long walk (uphill there, downhill back). And if you want a special meal out while you're on holiday, book in at The Moorland Hotel (01752 839228), three miles from Dartmoor Domes. If you're catering for yourself, you can stock up on local goodies at the Cornwood Store and Tearoom (01752 878885), five miles from site, or the recommended farm shop at Endsleigh Garden Centre (01752 895533), 10 miles away. Plymouth, with all its supermarkets, shops and eateries, is just eight miles away for anything more.

From the A38 Devon Expressway, head towards Plympton on the B3416. After about two miles, you reach a roundabout with a right turn towards Lee Moor. This is the B3417 Strode Road. Continue following signs for the B3417 for three miles until a left hand turn, where you'll see a signpost for Portworthy. Take this road and follow for half a mile until you find Dartmoor Domes on your left.No
