The infamous Cafe Alf Resco

Cafe Moreleigh Devon

Set in the heart of the South Hams, Lower Collaton Self Catering Cottages are ideally placed for all local Devon attractions, with Woodlands Adventure Park and Dartmouth Golf and Country Club both within a mile.

Sailing and Boating

Boat and dinghy hire, and even kayaks and canoes, are available for hire on the Dart, and beautiful trips can be enjoyed up the river to the villages of Dittisham and Tuckenhay (both with pubs conveniently located!) and beyond to Totnes.


There is easy and quick access to the coastal path with stunning views of the coastline from places such as Start Bay lighthouse, Prawle Point, Bolberry Down and Bolt Head. The coast is only six to seven miles away. Inland, Dartmoor offers a rugged alternative, with both gentle strolls and arduous hikes. The choice is yours! On the farm we have our nature trail, and footpaths to Blackawton and to Tuckenhay.

Eating and Drinking

There are plenty of excellent restaurants in Dartmouth and Totnes. Virtually all pubs in the area do good value food, and most are children friendly. The Maltsters at Tuckenhay is a pretty quayside pub, which was owned by Keith Floyd until he drank it dry! It serves excellent food and beer, and has a waterfront BBQ in summer in fine weather. It has recently had a major refit.

  • George, Blackawton good no frills local with pub grub
