Fremington Quay is an ideal place to start your journey

Situated on the Tarka Trail and enjoying panoramic views of the river Taw, Fremington Quay is an ideal place to start your journey or take a well earned break. Fremington was once an important, busy port with goods arriving and departing from all over the World. A railway line was created for carrying goods, which now forms part of the Tarka trail.
The Heritage Centre at Fremington Quay offers a fantastic, interactive journey of local history and tells stories told by local villagers and workers.

What was once the old station is now a bustling cafe serving some of the most delicious cakes, all year round served in a surrounding, rich in history.

Free car parking, a bike hire service and cafe all make Fremington the ideal place to start, or end your Tarka Trail walk or bike ride, but there is also a children's play area, grassed picnic area and lots of of paths to explore along the estuary that makes Fremington a great place to visit.
