Our Dartmoor Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Dartmoor

Dartmoor is one of the UK’s most evocative natural landscapes. A vast wilderness right in the heart of Devon, it’s a place of heather-strewn moorlands, wooded valleys, craggy tors and coursing rivers. Dartmoor has inspired a sense of awe for millennia, reflected in the mystical stone circles and ancient tombs dotted right across it, and fantastical legends linger all about here.

With such impressive surroundings, endless possibilities for walking, cycling and climbing await in this exceptional National Park. The famous, semi-wild Dartmoor Ponies are a much-loved sight, and can be spotted roaming freely cross the moors. Don’t forget Dartmoor’s perfectly picturesque villages too, with their winding country lanes and thatched cottages, as well as the bustling market towns, with plenty of craft stores, independent shops, and local treats to enjoy.

Dartmoor holidays truly have a charm all their own. Find your holiday inspiration with our Dartmoor Travel Guide.
