If you need to be active, there are lots of hearty, and not-so-hearty things to do...such as...
Play pooh sticks at Packsaddle Bridge - right beside the cottage
Walk to Lustleigh: there is a general food shop and dairy, the Cleave pub (dynamic landlord), a church and a cricket pitch. It is 5 minutes drive or a leisurely 20 minutes walk away from the cottage. Lustleigh is picturesque, with thatched houses around the village green. The 15th century pub has an interesting menu, which changes often - you won't go hungry. It has a friendly atmosphere, welcomes children and lots of space as well. During the Civil War it is believed that the landlord hid Catholic priests in the attic! Find it at www.thecleave.co.uk
Walk on Dartmoor - climb Haytor - or visit Widecombe - or walk to Manaton (one hour plus...) or the Rock Inn at Haytor Vale (even further). Ride a pony. Becky Falls is nearby, or see Canonteign Falls; the highest waterfall in England.
The Warren House Inn in the middle of Dartmoor is great see the location of the nearby stone age village at Houndtor...and then you could go and look at the grim prison at Princeton, .
Swimming in the river - for the more hardy - or the children.
Go to the sea! 20 minutes drive or so...Walk the South Devon Coast Way between Teignmouth and Torbay
Or simply relax, with the sound of the Wrey Brook bubbling gently past the garden.
