Devon Wildlife Itinerary - 6 Day Active Holiday

Day 1Yoga, Swim and Dartmoor's Majesty

We arrive into Exeter St David’s for 11.00am before making a short transfer to Dartmoor for a beautiful walk to Hay Tor for a vinyasa yoga session which will be followed by a picnic lunch before we embark on an afternoon forage in the Dart Valley nature reserve where we will end the day with a wild swim in the magical waters at Sharrah Pool – flanked by beautiful woodland, it is a stretch of calm water with granite slabs, and if fairies exist, this would certainly be their watering hole. A mystical spot that sets the scene for your wellbeing tour. 

OPTIONS:
4 – 7 miles             1 x yoga            1 x wild swim


OPTIONS:

4 miles

Day 2Stone Circles and Walk the River Dart

Stone Circles and Alternative Totnes Walking. We start at sunrise to catch the first light over Scorhill Stone Circle where we’ll run through some breathing exercises to awaken the senses and become tuned in to the magic of Dartmoor. After breakfast, we’ll walk to head to Riverford Field Kitchen for a veg-centric seasonal lunch. Riverford Farmers are leading the way with their veg box scheme, while helping us connect more deeply to the food that should be on our plate. We will continue in the afternoon with a walk around Totnes, a hive of alternative culture and lifestyles and a walk down the wonderful river Dart as it becomes an estuary. We return to the delightful village of Chagford for dinner in the evening.

OPTIONS:
up to 6 miles

 

Day 3Forest Bathing and Rewilding

We start the day with a gentle stroll through Bellever Forest for a spot of forest bathing – the concept is simple, it’s all about spending quiet, more mindful time in nature. It’s incredibly relaxing and invites you to take notice of the natural world to calm your mind. We will then make a short transfer to Spitchwick for a wild swim in the River Dart and yoga session on the river bank, before heading to the Sharpham Estate for lunch and to learn more about a rewilding project that’s underway – we may well get you all stuck in with planting a local tree or two. There will be an opportunity to trial some of their delicious white wine – you can tell it’s a happy marriage between healthy soil and grape on this estate! We will then paddle board or walk down the River Dart, stopping in at Stoke Gabriel to see if we can forage some delicious Marsh Samphire before heading to our new hotel for dinner. 

OPTIONS:
4 miles       1 x dip and a SUP / Kayak       

Day 4Yoga, Foraging and the Magical Burgh Island

Yoga and Foraging. We start the day with a refreshing wild swim and yoga session at Mothecombe before we head to the School House Cafe for a late breakfast / early brunch. We then cross the River Erme on foot (if tides allow) to join the South West Coast path to begin our coastal ramble towards Challaborough and Burgh island, where we will stop at the Venus café for lunch and The Pilchard Inn, which has been quenching the locals thirst for over 700 years, for a pint. We will have the opportunity to paddle, dip or swim in Bantham Swoosh (again, if tides allow!) before continuing along the coast to Thurlestone Beach for some seashore foraging in one of the best rockpooling spots in Devon. We will leave no trace!

Day 5Yoga + SUP Yoga and walk to Salcombe

Yoga, Sup and Salcombe. We start the day at the amazing Hope Cove with a final Yoga session and for those who want to potentially try something new – how about SUP Yoga. We’ll then walk along the coast from Hope Cove towards Salcombe – coastal air is so good for the mind, body and soul. We will take the time here to ramble slowly and gently along the coast with the option for a final swim at the beautiful Sour Mill Cove. We will end the day with a sunrise picnic dinner around a campfire with food delights from Duke Street Deli. 

OPTIONS:

6-8 miles   1 x yoga    IMAGE FOR A SUP
