Well worth checking out on self-catering holidays in Yelverton, the village has its own independently run cinema, on the banks of the River Meavy. There are many beautiful walks from the village, out onto the moors, including a gentle route to Burrator Reservoir, where fishing is popular. There is a cricket club, and a unique golf club where the course runs onto open moorland. Yelverton’s best-known landmark is undoubtedly Roborough Rock, a massive outcrop on Roborough Down, which the Victorian Rock Hotel was named after. In and around the village, there are several opulent country villas. Another distinctive landmark, St Paul’s Church, was hit by a plane after an airfield was built during the Second World War, and a light was fixed to its tower. President Roosevelt once landed on the airfield, the outline of which remains visible today, along with several earth and brick bunkers. On the doorstep of South Devon holiday cottages, the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a short drive westward, with spectacular riverside walks, and unspoiled countryside to explore. The South Devon coast is a little further southward, with sandy beaches and hidden, rocky coves.
