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.

    Hidden away pub bedrooms used used to be the last resort in accommodation. Not so now. Take a look at my review of the Plume of Feathers Inn at Princetown these days to see what I mean.

    Another great Dartmoor hostelry gets my full approval. This time the charming thached Bearslake Inn that looks as if it came out of a fairy tale by Brothers Grimm.
