Dartmoor is a splendid, wild and untamed land within a land. It is a region of dark granite rocks and towering tors and has spectcular views and scenic beauty.


Dartmoor is not just about the landscape; there's a lot more to it than that. It's not just about the ponies, or the tors, the history or the heritage; but that's a good start.  It's about getting out there, experiencing new things.

This living, breathing, working landscape holds the secret to a past that stretches back over the centuries, and a future that is both sustainable and green. From rare birds and butterflies, Neolithic monuments and ancient woodland, to tradition, folklore and farming on horseback, Dartmoor has it all.

Leading the way for the arts, all things organic, a haven for literary greats and explorers, you will be walking in some awesome footsteps.

Dartmoor has the largest number of archaeological remains in Europe. So if it is stone circles, menhirs, stone crosses and ancient villages that get you excited, Dartmoor is the place to be. In fact, it is where Time Team were, unearthing all manner of interesting artefacts.

Dartmoor is home to all manner of wildlife, from Dartmoor ponies wandering the moor, to the rare marsh fritillery butterfly.
