Favourite Places for you to visit near Bowerland

Those of you who have come (or are thinking about coming) to stay with us at Bowerland will know all about the incredible dog training packages we offer.

During your time at Bowerland, we know you’ll love relaxing in our holiday cottages, but if you’re looking to get out and about in those hours between your training sessions you might be wondering what else you can get up to. Here are a few of our favourite places in the local area:

Tavistock Pannier Market

Pay a visit to the nearby town of Okehampton. One of our favourite activities is to go to a coffee house called ‘Toast’ for a cappuccino and piece of chocolate cake! Although this is recommended, you’ll also find a good variety of other shops and cafés. Okehampton also has three large supermarkets to pick up anything you need during your stay.

Head to the Pannier Market in Tavistock, something we try and do as regularly. This traditional market is located indoors meaning it’s still suitable even if the weather is bad! If you’re looking to go shopping you could even head down to Plymouth for a day out, which is not too far away.

Being located right on Dartmoor there are countless opportunities in the local area for dog-friendly walks. I love starting a walk from Princetown right in the centre of the moor, but we’ve put together a few other suggestions such as Tavy Cleave & Hare Tor or a circular walk near Meldon, which is nearby.

Visit the Fox and Hounds pub. With a great local atmosphere, delicious food (we recommend their pies!) and fantastic views, this is a venue we recommend. Please visit www.foxandhoundshotel.com for more information.

Of course this is only a selection of some of our favourite things to do – if you’ve come to stay with us before we’re sure you have your own favourites!

Do you have a training issue you want to tackle? Come and stay with us in our cottage style apartments, right in the heart of Dartmoor, and make the most of our fantastic training facilities onsite.
