Take a walk

Take a walk around the undisturbed Burrator, surrounded by mixed woodland which sharply contrasts with the open moor and rugged Dartmoor tors.

Many of the trails lead on to Dartmoor so it makes an ideal starting point for longer trips. The circular walk which follows the lanes around the water is ideal for families as it is easy going and flat.
