Dare you try the Delicious Drakes Trail?

When the organiser of this Sunday’s Delicious Drake’s Trail first pitched the idea of a food-festival-on-the-run to local food and drink businesses in West Devon, it took more than a little explaining. After all, eating and exercise are not the most traditional of bedfellows. But as 250 participants and over 30 local businesses look forward to the second annual Delicious Drake’s Trail in aid of CHICKS charity on Sunday 4th October, the event’s popularity has revealed a remarkable appetite for this unlikely fusion of fun-run and food festival.

Fishing on Dartmoor

The fishing on Dartmoor can be described as a “must” for any fly angler. The rivers are varied, sometimes challenging, but you will be in one of the most beautiful spots in the UK to cast a fly and will often be alone with just rising trout for company.  Our latest Guest Blog has been kindly written by Pete Tyjas of The Devon School of Fly Fishing

Warm welcome at the White Hart Hotel

Visit the moorland town of Moretonhampstead and the White Hart hotel is hard to miss, standing large and imposing at the town’s centre. It is an old posting inn dating back to 1639 and you get an instant feeling of history and permanence that is somehow very comforting. Add all the modern day luxuries it now offers and the place has a very welcoming feel indeed.
