About Yelverton

Yelverton, by-passed by the picturesque River Meavy is situated on the south-western fringes of Dartmoor. It is a quaint little town surrounded by fine scenery with easy access to some of the loveliest places on Dartmoor.

This is the perfect place for a leisurely walking holiday, or for pony riding (wild ponies can be seen close to the town), it is a good fishing centre, and is ideal for golf as well as cycling. The town's close proximity to the rivers Tamar and Tavy make it ideal for boating holidays, both these rivers enter the sea at pretty Saltash, so visitors have the opportunity to visit fine sandy beaches and enjoy peaceful coastal walks.

During the Second World War, Yelverton had gun emplacements.

The town is 4 miles from Tavistock and 10 miles from Plymouth, with its excellent shopping facilities and fascinating seafaring links.
