About

There’s nothing like first-hand experience to recommend a place or an event. Being fortunate enough to live within the Dartmoor National Park ourselves, we have built up a wealth of knowledge of where to find the best, the most original or the most fun and share that knowledge on our website to help you have a great time when you visit.

Wherever we go we are always thinking “Ah, that would make a good place to recommend,” or “I’m sure people would love to visit this event!” and we like to pass on news and developments as well as recommendations through our regular blogs.

If you discover somewhere or something you think is really great and should be shared – why not drop us a line at … and we’ll go and take a look.

    In May we called in rather late on at lunchtime to the cafe called No. 14 in the main street in Ashburton. I must admit it was getting on for 2, so not surprisingly some of the items on the lunchtime menu had run out. Great i…

    Foodies know this; the Dartmoor Tearooms at Moretonhampstead is one of the best tearooms on the Moor. And that George in the kitchen is an excellent chef. He shakes his head when I refer to him thus, saying that he is just a …

    We were on our way to South Molton at around lunchtime, and I had the bright idea that we should call in at the Bickford Arms. They are one of the Bed and breakfast listings on our website, and I had 'spoken' by e-mail to Nig…
