The Tamar Valley is Walking Country…

On the border of Cornwall and Devon the River Tamar forms the boundary between the two counties.

It’s walking country – there are great walks along the Tamar and it’s great for fishing. What drew me to this part of the world was that I used to come here on holiday and I loved it…!!

From Roman times to the present day, Westcountry rivers have been an ever-present thread running through our communities, our culture and our heritage. Ever increasingly, we have come to realise how wonderful it is to spend time on, in or near a river and they are so often the backdrop to our fondest memories of days spent outdoors, being active and spending time with nature.
