Taplow Studio ...things to do in the area. ( if phone numbers don't appear in the listing for security reasons let us know and we can email you )

There are many options depending on your interests and of course the seasons.
Here is our personal selection:

BEACHES

For a full list of beaches in the area see: http://www.torbay.gov.uk/index/yourbay/beaches/beachesintorbay.htm
Here are a few of our favourites:

Maidencombe (2.6 miles)– small sheltered pebbly cove with small ice cream hut. Not usable at high tide. Quite a lot of steps down to it. Just off the coast road after Stokeinteignhead, direction Torquay.

Ness (tunnel) Beach – in Shaldon (2 miles). Totally unspoilt red sand bay which is good for swimming. Reached through the smuggler’s tunnel and down some steps. Note there are no facilities on the beach itself so take drinks/food with you although there is a small shop selling ice cream, buckets and spades etc by the entrance to the tunnel. WCs are also at the entrance. The Ness pub is nearby for food and drinks and the Ode café serves excellent coffee, sandwiches etc. Park in the large Ness Public Car Park - TQ14 0HP

Shaldon (River) beach (2 miles) – Lots of boating activity. Local shops, pubs & fish and chip shop easily accessible. Take the small passenger ferry across the estuary to Teignmouth – much more fun (and probably quicker) than driving!

Teignmouth beach (3.5 miles) – long stretch of beach perfect for sandcastles and swimming. There is a long promenade alongside the beach which is perfect for a seafront walk at high tide. Crazy golf, a pier with arcades and other seaside activities.

Dawlish Warren Beach http://www.dawlishwarren.com A lovely Blue Flag beach with 2 very separate characters. By the car park you will find a busy buckets and spades beach by several shops, amusement arcades, cafes and public loos. Walk away from the crowds (shops etc on your left) and you will find yourself in a nature reserve and bird sanctuary with sand dunes – uncrowded even in peak summer. We love to walk here in winter.

Broadsands Beach (12 miles) – just south of Paignton. In a lovely rural setting the red sand beach is very safe for bathing and has good facilities including a shop, loos, cafe and very large car park. There is a lovely 3 ½ mile circular walk from the beach taking in Elberry Cove and Churston.

Just south of Dartmouth, Blackpool Sands (20 miles) is a beautiful pebble beach with great facilities including a shop and restaurant right on the beach – it can get busy and you will need to check restaurant opening hours and book if you would like dinner: Venus

Slapton Sands/Torcross (25 miles). Am amazing spit of land with a nature reserve on one side and a long sweeping pebble beach on the other. There is a lot of history associated with the beach as it was used by the Allied Forces in World War II – there are tanks still there to prove it!
Further afield there are beautiful golden sand beaches at Bantham (30 miles) which is a good surfing beach and right next door is Bigbury Bay which is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is approached by the River Avon Estuary. There are loos available but not much else although Burgh Island is directly opposite and can be reached across a spit of sand at low tide or sea tractor when the tide is in. On the island here is a great little 14th century pub called The Pilchard Inn – it gets very busy and is quite basic but great atmosphere and wonderful views if you sit outside or get a window seat. Very cosy in winter.

WATER BASED ACTIVITIES

For Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking, Stand up paddleboards etc with instruction, SeaSports Southwest in Teignmouth are highly recommended:
http://www.seasports-sw.com/ - Tel: 01626 772555
There is also Sea Kayak in Dartmouth:

Boat and fishing trips – available from the back beach at Teignmouth, in Torquay and Totnes (14.5 miles)

Swimming pools – The Riviera centre in Torquay (7.5 miles) is in-door with flumes etc. There is an outdoor lido in Teignmouth (3.5 miles)

GOLF
There are many golf courses in the area:
http://www.top100golfcourses.co.uk/htmlsite/area.asp?id=193
The closest are at Shaldon, Teignmouth and Torquay all of which have fantastic views.
There is Crazy Golf in Teignmouth!

CYCLING
Many people cycle directly from the village but obviously the roads around and about are narrow. Dartmoor has many beautiful cycling options with off road routes: http://www.dartmoor.gov.uk/visiting/vi-enjoyingdartmoor/cycling and there is also beautiful Haldon Hill on the way to Exeter for bike hire and off road cycle trails for all levels: http://www.forestcyclehire.co.uk/
A great addition to our cycling options is the newly completed Exe Trail – the website has maps to download: http://www.exetrail.co.uk/. It is a beautiful flat route alongside the river.

WALKING
There are numerous walks directly from the village (details in Home House) and here are some additional very good walks further afield:

http://www.southdevonaonb.org.uk/uploads/walks/38_TotnesDartington_updated_May2011.pdf

ANIMALS/ZOOS etc
There is a small zoo in Shaldon (lots of monkeys!) and a big zoo in Paignton (10 miles) which warrants a whole day trip. Living Coasts by the harbour in Torquay has a lot of penguins and an aquarium. Further afield there is the Dartmoor Zoological Park (23 miles) which is the subject of the book and film ‘We Bought a Zoo’ (we haven’t yet spotted Scarlett Johansson!): http://www.dartmoorzoo.org.uk. There is also the UK’s largest aquarium in Plymouth (34 miles): http://www.national-aquarium.co.

BOATS AND STEAM TRAINS
There are numerous options to travel along beautiful and interesting routes by steam train and boat:
http://www.dartmouthrailriver.co.uk/ - our closest point of departure is by the harbour in Torquay and Totnes is another good alternative.
There is also a full size replica of the Golden Hind in Brixham (14 miles): http://goldenhind.co.uk/

ARTS AND CRAFTS
There are a lot of ‘pop up’ arts events in the area and Dartmouth (17 miles) in particular has a lot of galleries selling high quality art by local as well as nationally acclaimed artists. In Bovey Tracy (9.5 miles) there is The Devon Guild of Craftsmen which exhibits contemporary arts and crafts in a lovely setting with cafe.

GARDENS/HOUSES
There are lots of lovely gardens open to the public in the area – some are National Trust and others privately owned: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/visit/local-to-you/south-west/things-to-see-and-do/south-devon/ and http://www.heartofdevon.com/things-to-do/history-and-heritage/gardens . Our personal favourite (en route to Dartmouth) is Coleton Fishacre (16 miles) which has a 1920’s house and beautiful views down the garden towards the sea. We also like Castle Drogo (21 miles) mainly for the beautiful walk down in to the valley and along the river: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/castle-drogo/things-to-see-and-do/view-page/item544981/ . We haven’t yet visited the house as it has been closed for restoration. Castle Drogo is close to Chagford (20 miles) a pretty little town on the north east edge of Dartmoor. Another special place to visit is Greenway, Agatha Christie’s home and garden: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/greenway/ - there is very limited parking available which has to be booked in advance and we have found the best way to visit is to drive to Dittisham (20 miles) which is a very picturesque village on the River Dart (great views from The Ferry Boat Inn) and then take the foot passenger ferry across the river which leads to the lower slopes of the garden. In low season you have to ring a bell for the ferry!
Further afield is The Eden Project which requires no introduction and is definitely worth the trip (68 miles) – there is masses to see and do. It’s best to dress in layers on cooler days because the heat of the tropical glass domes is pretty intense and you will need to strip off outer clothing!

HORSE RACING
We are lucky to have horse racing on our doorstep in Newton Abbot which is home to one of the UK’s leading summer jumps racecourses: http://www.newtonabbotracing.com/ . Not that much further away (12 miles) is Exeter’s racecourse: http://exeter.thejockeyclub.co.uk/ which is situated on the top of Haldon Hill, this side of Exeter.

MUSEUMS
There are a number of small museums dotted around the various towns in the area. By far the best in our experience is the award winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery in Exeter (19 miles). It is relatively small for a city museum but perfectly formed – a great destination for a wet day.

THEATRES
The closest theatre is The Princess Theatre in Torquay – there is a varied timetable of events and sometimes they have real gems such as ‘East is East’ which is touring with all of the original West End cast (13th – 18th July 2015): https://www.ents24.com/torquay-events/princess-theatre . Exeter has the Northcott Theatre which has an interesting and varied programme and has quite a lot of child friendly productions: http://www.exeternorthcott.co.uk/whats-on. The Royal Theatre in Plymouth is” the largest and best attended regional producing theatre in the UK and the leading promoter of theatre in the South West” according to the Arts council. It has very high standard productions – many are pre or post West End: http://www.theatreroyal.com/whats-on/list

CINEMAS
The closest cinema is The Alexandra in Newton Abbot (small screens and very cheap) and the Apollo Multiplex in Paignton. Exeter has an Odeon and Vue. There is also the rather wonderful Exeter Picture House which is a quirky small cinema where you can grab an excellent pizza before the film and take your glass of beer/wine with you when the film starts. We also now have the newly opened Pavillions on the front at Teignmouth. A wide variety of events there including cinema , live music as well as a lovely coffee and drinks bar overlooking the sea.

LOCAL PUBS

The Wild Goose – Really excellent food and a selection of local beers. Booking recommended. ( we are not just saying that because its our local !)

Church House Inn in Stokeinteignhead (1 mile walk) – similar to The Wild Goose in feel and serving good pub food. Has free wi-fi.

RESTAURANTS/CAFES

Lemon Jelli Newton Abbot. Probably the best coffee in Devon...and good reasonably priced bistro food.
On the corner on the right on the main street in Newton Abbot just after Argos. http:www.lemonjellii.

Ode in Shaldon – small and quite formal, local sourcing and excellent reviews in national newspapers. Need to book: 01626 873977. Additionally the Ode Café is just by the main car park in Shaldon – open 10 – 7 p.m. apart from Tuesday when closed.
The Clipper in Shaldon – wonderful location with outside seating on the seafront or balcony and lovely seaside feel inside. Would recommend as a great place to have cooked breakfast and for coffee and cakes but the restaurant food is a bit basic.

Naz in Newton Abbot and Teignmouth – excellent Indian restaurant. Tuesday evening in Newton Abbot is buffet night which offers excellent value for money and a good choice of dishes (£12 per head). Will also deliver takeaway for free – Tel: 01626 334 837

Pinto Thai in Newton Abbot – our very fussy friends have just discovered this restaurant but we haven’t tried it yet. Apparently it’s very good and they also have a takeaway menu. 131 Queen Street. Tel: 01626 337823

The Crab Shack – well reviewed small seafood restaurant on the back beach in Teignmouth serving freshly caught fish and seafood. Need to book: Tel: 01626 777956

Twenty Six on Regent Street in Teignmouth is a very good French bistro style cafe/restaurant. Lovely for breakfast and coffee & cake and seriously good food for lunch – only rarely serves dinner. You might need to book in high season: 01626 879000

RockFish Seafood in Torquay, Dartmouth and Brixham– very casual and laid back, serving excellent fish and seafood bought daily from the market in Brixham. Also have a takeaway option. On the South Embankment overlooking the water in Dartmouth, on Victoria Parade (by the harbour) in Torquay and above the fish market on the harbour in Brixham. http://www.therockfish.co.uk/

The Seahorse in Dartmouth owned by Mitch Tonks (who also owns Rockfish) – this is a fine dining experience. Smart bistro serving sophisticated fish and seafood menu. Quite expensive. Need to book: 01803 835147

Café Alf Resco on Lower Street in Dartmouth is also great for good locally sourced food and lots of music events including Jazz on Sunday mornings. Just turn up.

The Cridford Inn in Trusham, a little village north of Newton Abbot off the A380 – serves superb food, either in the bar or restaurant (we prefer the bar for atmosphere). Main courses in the bar vary from £8.50 - £15.00 with daily specials and the restaurant serves a 2 or 3 course menu varying in price from £23.50 - £28.50. Worth the adventure of finding it! Need to book: 01626 853694

The Riverford Field Kitchen is the restaurant of Riverford Organic Vegetables situated in the middle of the countryside near to Buckfastleigh – make sure you take directions! (www.riverford.co.uk/restaurant). Superb food served as a set menu and shared table ...magic !Essential to book: 01803 762074.

The Oyster Shack in Bigbury – if you like fish and seafood and enjoy very unpretentious restaurants then The Oyster Shack is worth a visit.

The Jack in the Green in Rockbeare near Exeter – close to the M5 so call in for a treat on your way here or way back home or after a day in Exeter. Truly excellent food and voted one of the UK’s top 100 restaurants. Essential to book: 01404 822240.

Bill’s in Exeter – good food in casual fun surroundings where you can also buy produce such as chutneys, jams, olive oil etc. In the middle of Exeter on Gandy Street, take a chance and drop in or book: 01392 259227.


FISH AND CHIPS
Jacksons on the left hand side in the main street of Newton abbot. Excellent food

Hanbury’s is an award winning fish and chip shop in Princes Street, Babbacombe – voted one of the Top 20 in the UK by The Times. Expect long queues but you can phone ahead: 01803 329928.

Also great fish and chips in Shaldon ..sit on the beach and eat them !

CATERING

SHOPS
The nearest local shop is in Stokeinteignhead where newspapers, milk, bread and lots more are available. Turn left out of the drive and follow the road for about a mile - the shop is in the village centre. Open 9 – 5 p.m. Mon – Fri but mornings only over the weekend.

The nearest supermarket and petrol is Sainsbury’s in Newton Abbot – open until 10 p.m. every day except Sunday. There is also a 24 hour Asda and 24 hour Tesco in Newton Abbot and a Waitrose in Teignmouth.
There is a good fresh fish shop, jacksons, in Newton Abbot and on the back beach in Teignmouth. The fresh fish stall in Asda is a locally owned concession and is also very good. There is a really good butcher – Orsman’s – in Shaldon.

Newton Abbot has most high street shops that you might need including Boots, WH Smith, a small M&S and Austins department store. Torquay is bigger with a couple of department stores. Exeter has great shopping including most high street shops and department stores – driving in to Exeter at peak times can be a bit busy but the Park & Ride facility is excellent. Totnes has lovely more individual shopping almost all based along the High Street which runs up the hill. On the outskirts of Totnes is the Dartington Shopping Centre with some lovely craft shops as well as clothing, jewellery and a good farm shop. Ashburton on the edge of Dartmoor is also lovely for individual shops – lots of antiques. Topsham on the Exe Estuary is also very pretty with a good selection of shops, cafés and pubs – nearby Darts Farm started off as a farm shop but is now huge with a great selection of food and non-food goodies to buy and it also has an excellent café.
