Sporting and leisure facilities in the area are excellent. The Dartmoor National Park extends to over 300 sq. miles and provides ample opportunities for walking and riding. Sailing and other water sports are available within the Tamar and Tavy estuaries as well as from a number of venues along the south coast. Whilst there are golf courses at Yelverton, Tavistock, Saltash and St Mellion. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Walkham.
