Dartmoor National Park Things To Do

There are 450 miles of natural beauty to explore in Dartmoor. With wild, open moorlands, deep river valleys and rare wildlife. Walk, cycle or drive to the thousands of archaeological sites to discover Dartmoor's past. The views will steal your breath away. 

Dartmoor ponies roam its craggy landscape, defined by forests, rivers, wetlands and granite tors created about 280 million years ago. Trails wind through valleys with Neolithic tombs, Bronze Age stone circles and abandoned medieval farmhouses. The area is dotted with villages, including Princetown, home to Dartmoor Prison, used during the Napoleonic Wars.

Dartmoor National Park Walks

Follow one of the many routes in the south west, such as the Dartmoor Way or Wray Valley Trail, on foot or by bike. Or maybe take a compass and a map to explore the moor in your own way.

  • Princetown route (1 hour, 3km)
  • Ilsington route (2 hours, 5km)
  • Hexworthy route (2.5 hours, 5km)
  • Dartmeet route (3 hours, 5.5km)

  • Four Villages route (4 hours, 10km)

Dartmoor National Park Blue Lagoon

Sharrah Pool in Dartmoor National Park is one of the wild swimming spots in the UK. This experience is far more than just a swim – consider it an immersion in nature. Stroll through woodland, past a tumbling waterfall and follow the River Dart until you reach the clearing. It's one swim you won't forget.
