In the Area

Whilst you are here, why not take the time to visit Dartmoor? With breath-taking landscapes and an abundance of unique wildlife, there’s so much to explore. Dartmoor is home to rare fritillary butterflies, and the native ponies, too.

The well-known town of Bude is only half an hour away by car, and is one of the most acclaimed places to visit in Cornwall. Here, you can walk the coastal path with a backdrop of spectacular views. You can watch the surfers riding waves on the Atlantic Ocean. Or you may prefer to check out the many and varied shops in the High Street. Either way, you’ll find Bude to be one of the friendliest seaside towns you’ll ever explore.

We can prepare a packed lunch for you so that you can enjoy the whole day out exploring the many local tors. Or you can simply sit back and enjoy the scenery.

Local Activities

Nestled away in the Torridge Valley, the Half Moon Inn is ideally situated for you to gain easy access to a wealth of indoor and outdoor activities.

Surrounded by Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moors, there is an abundance of rolling countryside, high moorland and wooded valleys for you to explore. To the North there is some of the most stunning coastal scenery to be seen in the British Isles.

The pannier markets of Bideford, Barnstaple and Tavistock are not to be missed, along with a host of other attractions big and small.


Located in the heart of Ruby Trail Country and within easy reach of the Tarka Trail or the coast, or just a stroll along our own 4 mile stretch of river where you are more than likely to spot our resident Otter families and maybe a Kingfisher or two, it is all here for you.
