Situated in the south west of England, right in the very heart of Devon, Dartmoor is an ancient landscape of stunning views, awe-inspiring granite tors, deep wooded valleys with fast flowing rivers, and rugged, wide open spaces.
Dartmoor Ponies are an iconic sight, living as semi-wild herds all over the moor. Where else can you see the wonderful sight of wild pony foals playing together against a backdrop of one of the most stunningly beautiful areas in the UK?
Dartmoor also has a very gentle side. Safe, quiet areas where you can picnic with the family, easy to follow trails for strolling, walking and cycling, many lovely open spaces where the children can run to their heart’s content and a huge number of child friendly and dog friendly places to stay, to eat and attractions to visit.
