Many of our guests at Paschoe House hear about our reputation for fantastic fine dining and luxurious bedrooms (and that we are more than a little bit dog friendly), but not many people know about the fabulous opportunities for walking on and around the Paschoe Estate. One of our favourite ways to spend a weekend is to wrap up warm, put on our favourite wellies and get out exploring with the Paschoe pooches, Truffle and Toffee. With 25 acres of grounds and the Two Moors Way to explore, our guests are spoilt for choice for a beautiful walk in the Devon countryside.
There are a variety of walks through the 25-acre Paschoe Estate that you can choose from, depending on how adventurous or energetic you are feeling. Ask our friendly team at reception for a Paschoe Estate map and they can advise you on a route. Wind your way through woodland and between the rolling fields to our beautiful Victorian walled garden, where you can spot the abundance of seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs that will feature on your plate. You’re highly likely to spot a friendly robin or curious deer on your walk, as they are often seen on our estate. For the twitchers – buzzards, grey herons and owls are regularly seen swooping between the trees. Our close proximity to the untouched Dartmoor National Park encourages wildlife and means that a wide range of moorland nature features on our estate.
We are also lucky to be situated on the famous Two Moors Way – a 117-mile coast to coast path which crosses the magnificent moorlands of both Dartmoor and Exmoor. Paschoe House is about midway on the route, so perfect for a midpoint stop off if you’re planning to conquer the entire path, or ideal for exploring a shorter section and returning for a well-deserved afternoon tea in front of the fire! We are able to organise luggage transfers from Paschoe House on to your next stop, and we also offer drying facilities, luxury packed lunches, and we have family rooms available. Your four-legged intrepid explorers are also most welcome in our dog-friendly bedrooms.
If the weather isn’t playing ball, we have Paschoe House umbrellas to keep you dry on your expedition, and if you’ve left your walking boots at home, we have luxury wellies for loan to see away those miles in comfort.
