Extending over 953 square kilometers, Dartmoor National Park has been described as the last remaining wilderness in southern England, and it’s easy to see why.
The landscape offers a rich diversity of activities including walking, fishing, horse riding, rock climbing, mountain-biking and white water activities – to name but a few – but you can also come just to take in the breath-taking scenery and to recharge the batteries.
With an abundance of things to do from extreme sports such as rock climbing and canoeing, to beautiful gardens and houses draped in history, Dartmoor and Devon have so much to offer and be discovered. There are so many places to visit, but we have taken our personal favourites and included them in the below guide.
With 107 acres of beautiful parklands, fresh country air and the North Teign River flowing through our grounds, Gidleigh Park epitomises the very best of live in Devon. Within the secluded gardens and woodlands of the hotel there are various outdoor facilities, including a tennis court, 18-hole putting course and walks which take you from the hotel and along the river and onto the moor where there is a chance to spot the local wildlife...if you are really quiet, you might see some squirrels, rabbits, owls and even deer!
Once you have exhausted activities within the grounds, and fancy a day-trip out, we have put together a list of favourite children's activities in the local area.
The bordering county of Cornwall is a popular tourist destination, providing visitors with the chance to explore a host of magnificent sandy beaches, lush green countryside and craggy cliffs within an hour's drive of the hotel.
Either speak to our reception team, or have a look at our 'Visiting Cornwall' section of the below guide.
We have a number of excellent golf courses nearby. These are all listed in the guide. Some require pre-booking, so be sure to speak to our reception team who will be happy to arrange this for you.
