Things to do in Bere Alston, Devon

Bere Alston is a village of some 3000 inhabitants set on the beautiful Bere Peninsular between the Rivers Tavy and Tamar on the borders of Devon and Cornwall.

In bygone days it was a mining community; tin, silver lead ore and arsenic, with much of the surrounding area taken up with daffodil farming and soft fruit; strawberries, cherries and grapes.

Nowadays most residents work in Plymouth (12 miles away) or Tavistock (6 miles), leaving the countryside around the village to farming and delightful views - many of them right across the estuary to the Brunell's Tamar Bridge. It is a lively village with a vibrant social life.
