if I'm missing anything good. We'll be staying at River Dart campsite.
Heligan Gardens (I know its a bit of a trek) Paignton Zoo Miniture Pony Centre Hopefully a day at Blackpool Sands if weather is nice. A day/morning having a walk somewhere nice on Dartmoor, ideally where there will be ponies to see roaming about and a stream to paddle in (location sugestions welcome).
When are you going. I am in North Devon and it has been raining like a raining thing for many days now. If you are going down as far as Heligan what about considering the Eden Project instead if it is still this wet? And don't forget your wellies.
[http://www.chagfordpool.co.uk/ Outdoor swimming pool in Chagford]]. Also in Chagford is the most amazing shop called Webbers selling absolutely everything for the home - and there is another similar shop called Bowdens next door to it. Several tea rooms, delis etc.

in OK weather: there's a nice park in Bovey Tracey where children can paddle, and there's a little art gallery to wander round if it's wet.
Go up Hay Tor with small children, it's very easy but feels like a proper climb.
Castle Drogo has lots of holiday activities.
Fingle Bridge is another good place to picnic and paddle with small children and has a pub that does cream teas.
My children like Stover country park near Trago Mills. It's quite low key, has a poetry trail and a few woody sculptures and a lake and woods. Trago mills is shopping centre which is very popular, perhaps worth it if it's bad weather.
House of Marbles, near Bovey Tracey, is free and fun.
Newton Abbott has a little park called Decoy country park, behind Sainsburys, which has fountains you can play in.
Definitely Becky Falls. Shaldon has a nice (river) beach and the Ness zoo. In Torquy you can go to Kents Cavern caves and the model village at Babbacombe. There is just so much to do in that area with kids - this is just a few ideas.
My geography of Devon is not brilliant but if you're anywhere near Totnes the Dartington Cider Press centre is good - nothing to do with cider really but lots of nice little unusual shops in a nice setting including a good toy shop, kitchen shop with cafe etc
