About the neighbourhood
Lydford is an extremely attractive village and is home to the renowned National Trust Lydford Gorge which has wonderful walks and waterfalls. The Granite Way cycle route passes through the village and there are plenty of lanes and countryside for walking in. Dartmoor is wonderful if you want to get away from everyone or simply find the ponies with a bag of carrots. It is an obvious destination for walking and exploring but for those less able, car touring is easy.
Getting around
You can walk to two pubs which have great food plus the Lydford Farm Shop which stocks all essentials. You can also catch buses to both Tavistock and Okehampton.
