The Local Area
The beautiful and dramatic landscape of Dartmoor covers a vast area of 368 square miles. Home to the famous wild ponies, it is one of the remaining areas of Britain that is truly wild, with stunning views around every corner, wooded valleys, meandering rivers, waterfalls and tors. It is a relaxing place to escape to.
Within a short drive you’ll be in the heart of the English Riviera. Boasting 22 miles of glorious coastline and 20 beaches on offer this picturesque area comprises of the three popular, but equally different destination towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham grouped around Tor Bay, each offers a distinctly different visitor experience.
Directly opposite Ross Park is Dainton Park Golf Club a wonderfully varied, attractive and challenging golf course. For anglers, there is plenty of fishing around the coastal waters and several locations within the area providing coarse fishing.
