Learn to sail on the river... with qualified instructors who make boating fun.
Paddle your own canoe - up to 12 of you in one boat! Terrific fun - you can choose from a riverside ice cream halt, a picnic, build a campfire, dine ashore, a winery visit, or cook up a riverbank barbecue. By day and by night, sunshine and moonlight.
Crabbing at Dittisham
Surely the most fun to be had with a bucket and a bit of bacon! The best day of the children's holiday will be the day you take them down to the pontoon at Dittisham with a bucket, a bit of line with a weight on the end and a piece of yummy bacon rind. Watch those crabs fight to be hauled up into your bucket of lovely river water!
For all lovers of fine wines and cheese - or just great views! Sharpham Estate offers all these - tours of the vineyard, fabulous food in the Cafe and panoramic views of the river right up to Totnes. A great place for picnic provisions or for gastronomic souvenirs!
