Our Regular Walk at Parke

I'm so glad Major William Gerald Hole bequeathed his estate to the National Trust. We get to enjoy a wonderful walk at the weekends with Harry our Springer Spaniel. 

To see some really lovely images of Parke and find out more please click here

These beautiful woods have given us cool shelter in the summer heat

River beds and unusual tree stump shapes can be seen when the water level is low

The River Bovey runs through Parke and the fresh and clean water comes from Dartmoor

Harry enjoys a swim

We finish our walk on this track which leads back up to the main entrance and cafe.

Below are some items on display in the courtyard

Devon Cart 

Tramway Truck

Hay Cart

Dartmoor Sledge

After a marvellous walk we often stop off at Home Farm Cafe for a sandwich and a cup of tea.

A perfect way to spend a Sunday morning and de-stress.

We're still looking for our next home, had some disappointments along the way, but trying to remain positive and relaxed.
Take care all
