Put your trust in Tavistock
Tavistock, found in the heart of Devon, has seven National Trust sites within easy reach. The most popular is Buckland Abbey. Built over 700 years ago, the abbey now contains an excellent museum, stunning gardens and plenty of treasures like the famous Drake’s Drum. For those looking for more adventure, try Lydford Gorge - the deepest gorge in the South West. It has a 30m waterfall and abundant wildlife to savour.
Explore the wilds of Dartmoor
Tavistock is on the Western edge of this national park, so is the perfect base to explore Dartmoor. Jump on a horse and discover the moors, or simply find one of the many walking routes to enjoy the stunning views. The moors are filled with both natural and manmade sights, with Neolithic monuments, stone circles and ancient villages dotting the landscape.
Enjoy market life
Tavistock is your quintessential South West market town from its quaint cafes to its traditional buildings and cobbled streets. Pannier Market, in the heart of town, was granted Royal Charter in 1105 and is still going to this day. Or why not indulge at a more modern eatery such as Taylors. Finish your day with a walk along the canal or a trip to the Meadowlands Swimming Pool to cool off. Looking for accommodation in Tavistock?
