One of the least populated areas of the country, Dartmoor National Park is made up of vast stretches of open moorland, craggy granite ‘tors’ and ancient woodland, with a scattering of small villages and country lanes.

Far wilder and feeling far more remote than the rest of the South West, Dartmoor can be strikingly beautiful, with its wild ponies and flocks of sheep wandering across the moorland. It is a great place for hiking, cycling and kayaking, and there are interesting remains of Iron and Bronze age settlements to discover, but be aware that when the weather turns the moors can become desolate and disorientating.

Dartmoor’s villages are inviting refuges, with their traditional granite buildings, historic churches and cosy country pubs.
