Stover Country Park ,once part of a large estate owned by James Templer, is an ideal centre for both long and short family walks.

The park with its large lake and a rich variety of habitats,all carefully marked with instructive notice boards.,has been declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

You can also follow a Poetry Trail celebrating the poems of Ted Hughes who lived for most of his life in North Tawton,Devon and was a favourite amongst many primary school children.

How do I get there?
Off the A382,almost opposite entrance to Trago Mills. It is well signed!
