Plymouth - Dartmoor & Lydford Gorge (half day)

Venture out of the city to the fabulous countryside of Dartmoor National Park. Travel through rolling countryside, over the ‘Moors’ and past the remote landmark of Brentor church, to Lydford Gorge. Lydford is so naturally beautiful is that it is treated as a National treasure.

The famous gorge is 1½miles long and can be viewed from a circular walk, which starts high above the river and passes through attractive oak-woods before dropping down to the spectacular 30m-high White Lady waterfall. The path then proceeds along an enchanting riverside walk through the steeply sided ravine, scooped out by the River Lyd as it plunges into a series of whirlpools, including the thrilling Devil’s Cauldron.

Afterwards take time to browse at the well stocked National Trust shop, or enjoy a refreshing cup of tea at the tea rooms (Not included) before heading back to Plymouth. Tour operates rain or shine! But if weather is particularly unpleasant and alternative route may be taken in order to avoid unsafe conditions in the Gorge.
