Around Teigngrace, there are plenty of easily manageable walks, which are on the level and lead to woodlands, the Templars Way and of course the beautiful river Teign, where in season, the Sand Martins build their nests.For those who love nature, the area is blessed with a diverse range of wild life: deer,foxes,badgers, as well as a host of bird species.

Some parents bring their cycles on their cars so that they can ride during their child's lesson. Others prefer to sit in their car and read or listen to music. Some choose to take their dogs for a walk.

In my garden there is a lovely summer house; customers are welcome to use this whilst waiting.They will find it easy to spot a good variety of birds; over fifty species were seen in one year, ranging from garden and woodland birds, such as Woodpeckers, Nuthatches and Long Tailed Tits, to birds of prey, such as Buzzards, Goshawks and Red Kites. A dozen or so female Pheasants with their chicks, regularly visit in order to feed and shelter, along with the splendid, male Pheasants, which jealously guard their harems. Some have been known to feed from our hands.

The lake in Stover Park, nearby, is easily accessible; birdlife, wildfowl and dragonflies can be seen.

There is the recently restored, historic, Stover canal and the now defunct railway lines, (which formerly led to Heathfield, Bovey Tracey and Chudleigh) not forgetting Teigngrace Halt!

Trago Mills is only five minutes away as are the local shops in Kingsteignton and Newton Abbot. Some parents take the opportunity to do their  shopping whilst their children are having their lessons.
