We had a very pleasant short stroll along the river bank watching the water tumble through the boulders. The water is very clear. Advisable to choose when you visit as the car park and surrounding area can be heaving with visitors.

Place is lovely during the off peak season and very crowded during summer. We were there in March when it was peaceful and quiet, and enjoyed walking along the river, climbing over the boulders, taking photos etc. The cafe nearby does lovely home cooked meals with a great variety of choice. Or you can take a picnic and sit next... More

It is so nice to see and wade in a clear water river, also the boulders really add to the place, you can see trout if you look carefully, and on a sunny day you ought to take a piknik. The kids will love this place, and you can really tune into nature here, also some very old trees, Hope... More

So much fun had by all we went back again the following day. Little Inn at the end of the lane was closed but still wandered... More

A fantastic place to wander over the moorland next to the river. The kids loved jumping on the stepping stones and dropping pooh sticks in the river. Lots of lovely old trees and moorland.

We've been visitng Dartmeet since 1999 when our kids were small. Great place for splashing about, playing Pooh-sticks, prodding the river bed, climbing rocks and enjoying fresh air. Easy, free parking plus loos and an ice cream shop as well as the cream tea and lunch restaurant at the far end of the car park. The kids have grown but... More

Can get busy on the summer, but if you are on Dartmoor it's worth a visit. Beautiful spot and is out of season it is very peaceful. A walker's paradise!

Such a lovely area to walk. I was amazed how different it was to the US. It was lovely and quiet while we were there but I could imagine it could get very busy in summer. So so pretty

Incredibly popular with tourists, the area around Dartmeet fills with cars and families during warmer months. Unless you get there early you'll find it virtually impossible to park. With toilets and cafes dotted about selling ice cream, food and other refreshments the area really pulls in the crowds. It's very scenic with the brown brackish moorland water forming the wide,...
