Dartmoor Guide

The incredible landscape of Dartmoor National Park, with its rugged rock formations, miles of moorland, mystic stone circles, fast-flowing rivers and wondrous waterfalls, makes it the ideal setting for a spooky story.

The park is awash with terrifying tales of smugglers, ghosts, headless horsemen, pixies and, of course, the Beast of Dartmoor, famed for roaming the moor.

The beautiful but mystical landscape has inspired writers and artists for generations, including Daphne du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn and Arthur Conan Doyle’s Hound of the Baskervilles. 

The 368 square miles make an ideal natural playground for camping, hiking, kayaking and horse-riding.

What to see and do

Dartmoor’s dramatic landscape and folklore is a magnet for nature lovers, history buffs, sporty types, writers and foodies. Its vast remoteness and unique natural features provide hundreds of attractions for all the family. Dartmoor is Mother Nature at her finest, with dramatic granite tors dominating the skyline while bleakly-beautiful moorland spans as far as the eye can see.

In a land of granite, the two highest rock outcrops – Yes Tor and High Willhays – are not to be missed. Explore a Victorian folly in a beautiful natural paradise at England's highest man-made waterfall, Canonteign Falls, which descends over 70 metres. Dark legends abound in the deep, menacing waters of the (seemingly bottomless) Crazywell Pool while similarly sinister stories surround the waters of the River Dart. The river is also a popular spot for whitewater kayaking.

Prehistoric stone circles, such as Scorhill, stand proud on the moors, giving off an air of ancient mystery. Were they a place of worship or a ceremonial arena? It’s up to your imagination. For some local history with cold, hard evidence behind it, head to the National Park Visitors 

Centre. History lovers can also follow in the footsteps of the Benedictine monks at Buckfast Abbey, or envisage a lifetime behind bars at one of the world’s most notorious jails, Dartmoor Prison.

Where to eat and drink

The outstanding nature of Dartmoor is a recipe for culinary success: enjoy succulent beef and llamb, spring water trout, cheese, cider, real ales and a world-famous Devonshire cream tea.

Author Daphne Du Maurier put the 18th century coaching inn Jamaica Inn on the map when she set her novel of the same name here. Today, it serves classic British fare using the finest local produce. The award-winning organic restaurant Riverford Field Kitchen prides itself on serving local produce direct from Riverford Farm, while Bovey Castle provides an elegant, English setting for a traditional afternoon tea.

Fans of real ale can sample some Dartmoor Brewery’s superb beers in many local pubs. The Okenham Arms Hotel and Restaurant, once a 12th-century monastery founded by Benedictine monks, is one such place – and it also serves award-winning meals. Alternatively, take the family to The Café On the Green, which overlooks the church and village green at Widecombe. 

It uses local ingredients to make cream teas, snacks, brunches and lunches at budget prices.

How to get here and around

Dartmoor National Park is within easy reach of the M5 motorway, the A30 and the A38. There are also good train connections to Exeter and Plymouth, both situated about 30 minutes from Dartmoor, and there are bus services that run between Princetown, Okehampton and Newton Abbot. You will discover a wealth of great attractions to explore on Dartmoor National Park, so
