Accommodation on Dartmoor
If you’re a fan of the great outdoors, then a short break on Dartmoor will tick all the right boxes. And with Farm Stay’s help, you can also find the perfect accommodation to suit your needs.
Situated in the south west of England in the centre of Devon, Dartmoor National Park is a popular destination – best known for its majestic granite tors, diverse wildlife, native wild ponies and wealth of Bronze Age remains. Dartmoor also boasts an impressive literary heritage, providing the inspiration for ‘Wuthering Heights’, ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ (set around the infamous prison) and ‘War Horse’.
Covering an area of 368 square miles, Dartmoor offers a variety of leisure activities, from hiking and rock climbing to cycling, pony trekking and ‘letterboxing’. Local attractions include the National Trust’s Castle Drogo, Buckland Abbey, Lydford Gorge and Finch Foundry as well as Canonteign Waterfalls and Morwellham Quay. Animal lovers will enjoy a visit to Dartmoor Zoo, Miniature Pony Centre or Buckfastleigh Butterflies and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary.
However you choose to spend your time, you won’t have to search hard for somewhere to stop for refreshments. Dotted across the moor are numerous farm shops selling local produce, traditional tearooms and friendly pubs in the market towns and picturesque villages.
At the end of a busy day, Farm Stay self-catering holiday cottages or bed & breakfast farmhouse accommodation provide a warm welcome. Relax in the high quality accommodation, while soaking up the beautiful scenery on your doorstep and appreciating Mother Nature at her very best.
