Dartmoor offers so much more than just a national park, take the time to explore and you will be rewarded with so much, fabulous walks, vast open tracts, may unspoilt areas to stop for a picnic, superb views and wildlife, some fantastic waterfalls and rivers.

From its spring on Dartmoor, through the granite moorlands to Dartmeet and on to the Atlantic the river runs through sleepy villages and sweeping green hillsides. Look out for the famous stream trains along the shore from Buckfastleigh to Totnes and on the approach to...More
