Free Things To Do

Starting your holiday wish list can be expensively daunting with the cost of meals, entertaining the kids and getting around really adding up. 

The beautiful 75 square mile Tamar Valley offers up a whole host of things to keep the whole family entertained for free. 

For outdoorsy types, those purse strings can stay drawn for the duration of your holiday.  There are countless spectacular walks, rambles and hikes across the valley catering for those after a gentle nature stroll as well as the more intrepid hikers amongst you.  View points like Kit Hill will take your breath away whilst saving on the pennies. 

With everything from reservoirs, moorland lakes and country parks to explore, it’s easy to create an active, adventurous exciting day out beside the water for next to nothing.   Find the hidden trails, take a wild swim, spot the native wildlife and while away the hours lost in the countryside. Take a picnic lunch to keep you fuelled along the way.

The Tamar Valley is filled with such a rich history from the old market towns spanning the valley, to forts, moorland settlements, mining culture and so much more.  There is plenty to soak up along your travels and strolls for a fascinating, immersive and free day out.
