Short Winter Walk to Pew Tor
With an hour to spare and needing a bit of fresh air and a few bits shopping we decided to head for Tavistock then on to Pew Tor which is only 5 minutes drive from Tavistock Town centre.
We headed up over Whitchurch Golf Course and parked just off the road to Sampford Spiney with a view up towards Pew Tor showing a clear path.
A conveniently positioned stone bridge means you don't even have to jump the stream to get to the path.
It's just steep enough to get your heart going but not too challenging and the outstanding views from the top are well worth the effort. You can see all the way to Plymouth in the South and Cornwall in the West.
Looking back it seems that we have walked a long way from the car but only takes about 45 minutes and the drive back to Tavistock is full of surprises with golfers and sheep to negotiate around. It's a beautiful drive.
