Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Chillington, Devon to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Kingsbridge This thriving market town is located at the head of the Kingsbridge estuary, a haven for sailors and wading birds alike. There is a thriving local community, lots of individual shops selling local produce and products, cafes, restaurants and pubs, a museum and several art galleries. The farmers’ market comes to town on the first and third Saturday mornings of each month with a cornucopia of local produce on sale in the town square.

History and Adventure If you fancy a day out with a difference then visit Burgh Island which is just a five-minute stroll across the sandy, life-guarded beach at Bigbury-on-Sea (at high tide, the famously unique sea tractor transports passengers through the waves instead). This small rugged island has a fascinating history; in the 14th century, resident monks brewed mead and fishermen drank at the Pilchard Inn, still a fine place for tall tales and ghost stories.

Beaches With 25 beaches to choose from in the South Hams, you could visit a different beach every day for over three weeks! Nearby Bigbury, Blackpool Sands and Challaborough are all ‘Blue Flag’ beaches. Bantham is a Marine Conservation Society recommended beach with rock pools and sand dunes to explore, as well as being a good place for surfing and windsurfing. Beautiful Bigbury-on-Sea and Thurlestone have wide expanses of flat golden sand, while Hallsands is a sheltered, shingle cove. Hope Cove, once frequented by smugglers, is a pretty fishing village with two sandy beaches and shipwrecks!

Totnes Quirky, cool and leading the way on sustainability, the little market town of Totnes is well worth an afternoon of rambling cobbled streets. Stop in independent cafes, visit the ancient castle or embark on a food foraging course at the Dartington Estate. To sample the best wine coming out of Devon, take a stroll along the River Dart to Sharpham Wine and Cheese, where tastings happen daily in the most beautiful of rural settings.

Nearest Beaches Slapton Sands, which is mostly shingle, is just three-miles from Maberly. For sandier beaches and world-class surf, head to Blackpool Sands, Mill Bay and Bantham, all between seven and ten miles away.
