At Gara Rock, we love to see smiles on every family member’s face after happy days out. So here are a few suggestions near us to keep big and little ones entertained. Just perfect for when you want to venture out for a day or two during your stay.
Becky Falls Woodland Park
Manaton, Newton Abbot, Devon, TQ13 9UG
No visit to Devon is complete without a day at Dartmoor’s Becky Falls. Pull on your walking boots and explore acres of woodland and streams, rich in wildlife. Have your phones ready to capture the stunning waterfall. Or try the fun boulder scramble! If that’s too adventurous for little legs, there are animal encounters, a children’s stamp trail, and more.
Ilsham Rd, Torquay, Devon, TQ1 2JF
Take your family for an underground adventure. Step back in time to the Stone Age as you explore the labyrinth of caverns at Kents Cavern. Home to Britain’s earliest humans and Ice Age beasts. This all-weather attraction offers plenty to do outside of the caves too, from woodland trails to family activities.
Woodlands Adventure Park

Come rain or shine, it’s the place to head if you’re looking for a day of action-packed fun. Get ready to scream on white-knuckle rides, send water splashing on the bumper boats, see wild and exotic new friends at the zoo-farm or burn off some energy in the indoor play centre. From tots to teens, everyone is catered for here.
Miniature Pony Centre

Animal lovers will be right at home here in the heart of Dartmoor National Park. It’s just adorable... surround yourself with miniature ponies, tiny foals, giant donkeys, and podgy pigs!
