Tavistock has a huge park with play areas for both kids and grown-ups. There is also plenty of history including the wonderfully named Betsy Grimbal's Tower, a fifteenth century edifice whose name is probably a corruption of Blessed Grimbald - a ninth century saint. We definitely want to go back and explore some more as we began to tire before we had seen everything and still had a three mile walk home. Excitingly, that homeward traipse was enlivened by the blue flash of a kingfisher so we were happy not to have taken the lazy option of bussing it.
