Things to see and do

Lifton Hall is close to some great attractions.
Take your pick from wild spaces, grand houses, delightful beaches
and lots of lovely gardens. There really is so much to see and do.

Below are just some of our favourite places for you to visit
when you are staying with us.


Lifton village sits just a few short miles away from the wild and wonderful Dartmoor National Park – it’s an amazing place, with over 345 square miles for walking, horse riding, climbing and more.

We are also very close to Exmoor National Park and Bodmin Moor.

And a stone’s throw from the Tamar Valley – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


Devon and Cornwall has a large number of grand houses and stately homes. Check out the National Trust and English Heritage websites for what’s nearby.

Here are our favourites:

Cotehele – Tudor house and gardens
Lanhydrock – Victorian estate, gardens and woodland
Castle Drogo – dramatic castle overlooking Teign gorge
Buckland Abbey – history and tranquillity.


If you feel like being a bit more lively, there is some great walking in the area and we are close to loads of activities and adventures:

Lifton sits on the Tamara Coast to Coast Way
Tree Surfers – treetop adventure you’ll never forget
Hidden Valley Puzzle Park – a discovery park for all ages
Various cycle routes including Coast to coast
Adrenalin Quarry


In the southwest we are spoilt for choice with some great beaches. Our favourites are:

Crackington Haven – tucked away little beach with great cafes, car parking and toilets
Widemouth Bay – larger beach with cafes, pubs, parking and life guards. Dogs welcome at one end
Trebarwith Strand – another great beach that disappears when the tide is in – so check the tide times!


We are literally spoiled for choice when it comes to a garden to visit. There are 16 world class gardens less than 60 minutes drive away.

Our favourites include:

The Garden House – one of the finest gardens in Britain
Lost Gardens of Heligan – 200 acres of history and romance
Eden Project – world famous garden and eco-project
Rosemoor – magical RHS garden

Check out Great British Gardens to see what else is on offer.


It would be wrong not to mention a few other great attractions that are well worth a visit, such as:

Alder Vineyard – wine tours and tasting
Sailing Barge Drifter – river trips on the Fal in cornwall
Charlie Bears Bearhouse Gallery and Shop – an enchanting space full of the joy of Charlie Bears

This is just a small sample of all the great things
you can get up to when staying at Lifton Hall

Excellent location for visiting places of interest in the area.
Stayed for three nights and will definitely stay here again.
