Challacombe is a remote village on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon dating back to Saxon times, home to over 130 people. A chance to follow the path through ancient woodland should be taken as it leads to a delightful church. Whilst enjoying the Moor keep a look out for the Longstone as itís the tallest ancient stone on Dartmoor. Or if Regency elegance is wished for Arlington House has wonderful treasures on display, complete with Victorian Gardens, Pleasure Grounds, and a huge collection of Carriages, the Stable Block will tempt all visitors to linger to see the working horses. Add the chance to ride in a Horse Drawn Carriage around the grounds makes a recipe for success. Or perhaps a trip to Lyn and Exmoor Museum will please with fascinating exhibits from the Bronze Age, and cringing medical equipment. Animal lovers are happy at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park, or for an intriguing experience there is Quince Honey Farm where working Bee Colonies are safely seen behind glass, and the mysteries of honey production is explained Ö.for younger visitors Watermouth Castle has impressive suits of Armour in the Great Hall, fabulous water rides, jumping fountains, and even a Dungeon Maze
