Local Walks

Our location in Bere Ferrers puts us in a beautiful setting, at the tip of the Bere Peninsula right next to the river banks where the Tamar and Tavy meet.

It’s a lovely place for walking, with plenty of opportunities for photography and spotting local wildlife along the way.


Here are some of our favourites:

The Bere Peninsula – A Branch Line Railway Walk – between Bere Ferrers and Bere Alston train stations (6.5 miles)

Bere Peninsula Circular Walk – both rivers, both villages, and most of the hamlets too! (9 miles)

Lopwell Dam to Bere Ferrers – check the tide times at Lopwell Dam before you set off! (2 miles each way)

Bere Ferrers Station Circular Walk – scroll down to pages 19-23 for a family walk around the village (3 miles)

Tamar Valley AONB Discovery Trail – the whole route is 35 miles and goes from Plymouth to Launceston and Lifton, but there’s 2 walks on the Bere Peninsula marked with Discovery Trail apples (4.5 miles, 8.5 miles)

Devon’s Western Frontier – along the River Tamar, from/to Bere Alston train station (5 miles)


We can’t leave out this, from The Guardian in February 2017. It’s not so much a walking route as a breathtaking description of our lovely peninsula that would inspire anyone to get their walking boots on!


If you have a favourite local walk, let us know and we’ll add it to the list.
