Greenway house and garden: 'the loveliest place in the world'
The trail to Greenway from Galmpton via Mill Lane takes in great views over the River Dart, and even goes along a beach foreshore. When the tide is in you may need to take off your socks and shoes to wade through the river for a short while, but when the tide is out it's a more straightforward walk.
This trail from the nearby village of Galmpton follows a permissive bridleway along quiet country lanes and through woodland. Great for walkers, horse riders and cyclists alike.
