Things to do around Dartmoor

Lordy, where do we start…….   Here is a list of our favourite things to do:

  • Go to the West Street Bakers and grab a picnic to have on to the moor.
  • Saturday morning breakfast at Taylors.
  • Wild swimming in a pool on the River Tavy.
  • Walk to the top of Sourton and be awestruck by the 360 view from North Devon to Plymouth Sound.
  • Lunch on local shellfish and crisp white wine at the Beachhouse on South Milton Sands.
  • Cream tea at Hotel Endsleigh having explored their beautiful gardens.
  • Sit at the end of the day at enjoy the view from Chaddlehanger in front of the firepit.
