The Bear Trail
Mia and Felix visited with Daddy bear and some friends while mummy bear went to Darts Farm Shop* for some retail therapy. It was 24 July, the day after this new local attraction opened for the very first time.
Mia says “the Bear Trail was exciting. It was great because you could race around an obstacle course, which included a rope swing over muddy water, a zip wire, stepping stones over mud, a wobbly bridge, a cargo net, hay bales to swing over, a rope bridge over a bog and tunnels underground.”
Felix says “the best bit was swinging over the hay bale. We went all around the obstacle course five times”.
Daddy Bear said “The Bear Trail is in a field rather than a forest. It was fun beating Mia in a race! Be prepared to get muddy!”
We spent in total for three people: £19.50. Adults and children over 1m all pay the same rate for entry £6.50 per person.

We think the Bear Trail is good for primary school aged children. Older kids would enjoy treetop adventures at Go Ape in Haldon Forest near Exeter. https://goape.co.uk/days-out/haldon
Cottage guests have also recommended Tamar Trails Centre which offers Tree Surfers among other things. It is suitable for a wider range of ages. Visit http://www.tamartrails.co.uk
