A beautiful short walk, with stunning views amidst one of Dartmoors finest river valleys. Take the 'Hunters Path' for breathtaking vistas and the 'Anglers Path' alongside the river where you'll see herons and all manner of other wildlife. Stay the night at The Old Inn in Drewsteighton (www.old-inn.co.uk) for a night of comfort and a breakfast that'll stay in the memory (hopefully not on the waistline!).

We were there Easter Monday too! The Duck Race was a lot of fun and the weather beautiful. Great minds think alike!
