Wooder Manor is an ideal central location for touring Devon and exploring Dartmoor. Walkers are spoilt for choice with walks to suit everyone starting from the doorstep, and it is just a leisurely stroll to a hike on the moors. There are fantastic opportunities for horse riding, cycling, canoeing, fishing, golf, rock climbing painting and bird watching, or just simply relax and take in the breath taking views from one of our cosy cottages.
