Belstone - A quiet village on the north of the Moor, very handy from the A30. 

Belstone, a sleepy Dartmoor village with a local cricket team, horse riders clopping past the village green, and two super private gardens open to the public for charity for the National Gardens Scheme each year. The village green has sheep and pony visitors all year round. Recommended for those walkers heading off over the Moors in search of nearby Belstone Common and the Nine Maidens cairn circle which is shown on the Ordnance Survey map as 'Nine stones' not to be confused with the nine stones at nearby South Zeal !
