Things to see and do on the Dodman
When you're looking for a tucked away place where you make your own entertainment, this is just the ticket. Go picnicking, clamber down to Vault beach, do a two minute beach clean, go rock pooling, discover the archaeology, search for the signal station on the Dodman, stay in one of our holiday cottages - for a quiet place there's so much to do.
Look out for
Discover the Dodman, rich in archaeological features including Bronze Age barrows, Iron Age earthworks, medieval field systems, the admiralty signal station and the 19th Century granite cross. Look out for our Dartmoor ponies who help with the conservation grazing, they're quite shy, but you might spot them munching away.
Just along the coast from the Dodman to the eastern end of St Austell Bay you can walk out around the promontory of Blackhead where you'll find the remains of the Iron Age fort. Then pause and take in the 360⁰ views - well worth lacing up your walking boots for.
