River Tavy, Devon


  • Located in Bere Ferrers, Devon, South West England, England
  • The River Tavy rises a short distance south east of Fur Tor on the high moors of the northern plateau of Dartmoor National Park. It's joined by a number of brooks or streams before it cuts through the glorious Tavy Cleave on its way south west to Tavistock
  • From Tavistock, the River Tavy flows into the Tamar Valley AONB where it merges with the River Tamar. It then runs past Plymouth into Plymouth Sound and the sea
  • We'd recommend walking by the River Tavy in Tavy Cleave. Start at the car park marked 'Lanehead' on the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map and either follow the mine leat east into the cleave or head up to Ger Tor and the Tavy Cleave Tors before dropping down to the riverside. If you are an experienced walker and the conditions are good, we'd suggest you follow the River Tavy east and then climb to the top of Fur Tor. This is the most remote area in southern England. It's a great place
  • We'd also recommend spending time exploring the Tamar Valley AONB. Along with the Northumberland National Park, we think it's much under-visited and an exceptional destination in which to holiday
