Dartmoor is an upland area in southern Devon, England, offering almost 1000 km square miles of sensational scenery including standing stones and bronze. The moorland and surrounding land has been protected by National Park status since 1951. The landscape consists of moorland capped with many exposed granite hilltops known as tors, providing habitats for Dartmoor wildlife. The highest point is 621 m above sea level. The entire area is rich in antiquities and archaeology.
- perhaps England’s finest National Park. Measuring 368 square miles, and has very few roads but a great deal of history, wildlife, and really amazing scenery
- famous for the stony outcrops around it, known as tors, as well as its truly spectacular scenery and the gorgeous wild ponies who live here. Even film director Steven Spielberg fell in love with it when he filmed War Horse here
- one of the greatest riding destinations in Britain
While guided adventure riding around Dartmoor — with fantastic lunches on the moors — is what we do most, we love receiving special requests. If you’d like to go hunting, visit sites of archaeological interest, try mounted falconry etc, we can organise it.
