 Tottiford Reservoir
Great picnic walks around a peaceful reservoir where Time Team in 2010 made some unique finds.
Three pleasant pub walks from the well known 'Nobody Inn'
Many delightful walks around Dunsford & Steps Bridge including the famous Daffodil Walk
A great pub walk with ancient tracks & signs of pre-Victorian rock mining as you walk through the bluebell woods.

Walk 2 to Doddiscombsleigh (8.1 miles)


This quite strenuous walk follows more lanes than tracks but the countryside is quite stunning.

It starts at Christow's Car Park and takes you via Christow's delightful old railway station to Doddiscombsleigh, past the famous Nobody Inn - allow 1hr 30 min to the Doddiscomsleigh.

It returns via Higher Ashton - its church is well worth a visit - passing The Manor Inn at Lower Ashton, through part of the Teign Valley Golf grounds.

busy crossingThe 6 min country lane stretch to the B3193 can be quite busy.
