Attractions

Out and About for Interest

There is a wealth of places to visit around Gulworthy, including the award winning historic market town of Tavistock, with its farmers' market, pannier market and exclusive shops and cafes. Tavistock has its own arts center and cinema, indoor swimming pool, and plenty of welcoming restaurants and bars.

Why not take the breath taking train journey from nearby Gunnislake to Plymouth, a magnificent city with plenty of retail therapy.

  The Old Rectory is one of the closest camping parks to the historic Morwellham Quay, home of the Edwardian Farm, which gives a fascinating insight of a bygone age in the mining industry. You can also take river cruises along the Tamar with calstockferry.co.uk.

National Trust sites are a plenty in the area, Buckland Abbey, Lydford Gorge and Cotehele House, Quay and Watermill, to name a few.

Within walking distance of the Old Rectory Camping Park are the Tamar Trails and of course Dartmoor National Park to explore, with its rugged beauty there are few places that can match it.

Out and About for Adventure

For the more adventurous person, there are plenty of attractions within a mile of the site, such as tree-surfing through historic woodland, canoeing and kayaking down the river Tamar, both with the Dartmoor Outdoor Company. Paintballing with the Wargame Company, and downhill mountain biking on what is said to be one of the best courses in the country, run by woodland riders. Course fishing at its best is available just a short distance away at Milemead Fisheries.
