This beautiful area is ideal for everything from just sitting and having a picnic, to walking, cycling and horse riding. The striking moorland begs to be explored, and there are also many attractions in the area.

Among the most popular sites to visit are Haytor and Postbridge, plus lovely little villages such as Widecombe in the Moor. For more information visit the website on: www.dartmoor-npa.gov.uk or ask at the Tourist Information Centres throughout the area.
