A lot of our visitors take a keen interest in the local archaeology. Dartmoor is rich in prehistoric remains with the nearby medieval settlements at Hound Tor and Grimspound being very good examples and at nearby Haytor the granite tramway is still clearly visible. Our guests also enjoy the many legends and folklore for which Dartmoor is renowned "Jay's grave, hairy hands, the Hounds of the Baskervilles".

There are a good variety of attractions to suit all the family including Woodlands Leisure Park, Pennywell Farm, Miniature Pony Centre, Dart Valley Railway Steam Train, Becky Falls.
