Dartmoor is a stunning sight in winter, particularly when the landscape is covered with a layer of ice or snow. You’ll also find lots of walking routes and activities are still accessible in poor weather – just be sure to wrap up warm.
Culture and heritage
Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous creation Sherlock Holmes solved mysteries all over Britain, but perhaps the most atmospheric of his stories is 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' set on Dartmoor. The national park remains one of country’s most rugged and dramatic landscapes and is loved by explorers of all ages. Look out for the famous Dartmoor ponies while you're there.
You’ll find a great selection of tasty local produce across Dartmoor, from locally-brewed beer and cider, to goat's cheese, honey, meat, pasties, cream teas, and fish and chips. And you’ll find food for every budget, from Michelin Star standard to cosy pub grub.
Sport and outdoors
Dartmoor is a brilliant place to get active. You’ll find a huge range of activities on offer, like horse riding, canoeing, climbing, fishing and even wild swimming for the brave. And there’s no shortage of space to enjoy a scenic walk, run or ramble.
Music and nightlife
Dartmoor has some wonderfully characterful historic pubs; try the Peter Tavy Inn in Tavistock – with its superb food and drink – and the award-winning country inn The Cromwell Arms.
Dartmoor is blessed with unique boutiques. It’s a great place to find something truly special, from tasty local food and drink to handmade arts and crafts.
