The Granite Way

5 min drive. This is an easy walk or cycle path running for a total of 11 miles and has 3 main sections. The closest place to start is just along the A386, after the Sourton sign. Pull into the little parking bay and the path will be right in front of you.

Meldon Reservoir

10 min drive. From the car park take the first gate on your left and walk down the hill towards the viaduct. Follow the river under the viaduct and carry on to the A30. There are signs to take you back to the viaduct. Great views from the top of the viaduct.

Roadford Lake

There is a great cafe and some fantastic walks. At the top of the lane turn right onto the A386, and then turn right onto the A30 towards Cornwall. Take the exit for Broadwoodwidger / Bratton Clovelly / Stowford and follow the signs for Roadford Lake.

Supermarkets, Pubs & Takeaways

After wearing out your dogs during training, you can stop for a pub lunch or treat yourself to a cream tea. Devon makes everything easy for you to relax with your canine companions.



We have 3 supermarkets here in Okehampton - Waitrose, Co-op and Lidl, which are all in close proximity to each other.

1. Go left at the top of the lane, and then right at the next roundabout.
2. Then right again at the next mini roundabout.
3. When you get to the junction, take a left and that will lead you into the town of Okehampton.
4. You will come up to a set of traffic lights, take a left turn and you will see all 3 supermarkets.
