Whats been going on in the park...


Kit Hill

Kit Hill is not far from here perhaps fifteen minutes in the car or a bike ride away. You can see the monument at the top from Spring Park if you look towards Callington. Once you make it to the top you will get the most amazing views. It’s best to go on a clear evening as you can see for miles. Across Dartmoor on one side, down the Tamar Valley to Plymouth and across Bodmin Moor on the other. If you only want to enjoy the view you can drive right to the top but if you want to go for a walk or take the dog out it’s also great.

We parked in the car park at the bottom where there is a map of all the paths and followed the main path to the very top to look at the view  I didn’t get a great photo so you will all have to go and have a look for yourselves!

Then we went to the quarry where there is a pool. The dogs had a great time swimming here while I sat on the rocks enjoying the last of the evening sun. If you were really brave this would be a fantastic place for a spot of wild swimming and a BBQ on a warm evening.

Brook and Peggy absolutely loved exploring Kit Hill and are giving it there seal of approval they recommend that if you are visiting with a dog you take them to the quarry pool for a swim! Also Brook was quite impressed with the stick she found so much so that she brought it all the way home to keep in the garden at Spring Park.

    What a wonderful place! And Brook looks very pleased.
    Looking forward to bringing our Max along in May so he can learn to swim as well (paddling is all he’s experienced so far).

    Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing stay – even with the Beast of the East on the horizon. The Old Potting Shed was perfect and came with all (if not more than) the usual home comforts, the hot tub was lovely at -2 degrees. The Springer Spaniel was a lovely shelter when the roads were all impassable and surrounding attractions including Golitha Falls were fantastic without the Summer crowds, Thanks you to our hosts and we will see you again.
