Things to Do 

Dartmoor has all the benefits of a remote countryside destination, but still has an abundance of things to see and do. Arguably, however, the best part of Dartmoor is not the activities that have been sprung upon it, but the deep natural history that encapsulates this rugged, fascinating landscape. The granite that makes up its world famous tors was formed here over 280 million years ago, but Dartmoor has also been home to humans for thousands of years, who have had a dramatic impact on the landscape. Dartmoor has lived through just about every significant historic event, from the Bronze Age (when many of the stone circle burial sites here were erected), through to the Saxon and Norman invasions, the Medieval Period, the Black Death and industrialisation. 

Dartmoor’s history of farming, particularly of grazing cattle farming, has led to the formation of various different types of natural landscape across Dartmoor, each diverse and different in their wildlife populations and landscapes. Made up of moorland, farmland, rivers and woodland, Dartmoor is one of the richest landscapes in Britain and is home to many endangered species, such as Barbastelle Bats and rare landscapes such as hay meadows.  

The National Park visitor centre is located in the small village of Princetown, at the heart of the park. Here you can learn all about the Dartmoor story and the best places to visit in the park. If you’re here for a longer period of time, say more than a week, it might be worth visiting the centre early on in your trip and chatting to the team there about how to make the most of your time here. 

When you’re not exploring the natural wonders of Dartmoor, why not pay a visit Dartmoor Zoo? The 30 acre zoo is run by the zoological society and is home to a range of both exotic species and animals native to Britain. Other unique, family friendly attractions in the area include Canonteign Falls waterfalls, Lydford Gorge waterfall trail, River Dart Country Park and Buckfast Abbey.  

So, if you’re looking for beautiful views, long walks, fascinating wildlife and lots of fun, look no further than our holiday cottages near Dartmoor.
