Dartmoor is infamous for its vast moorland where Dartmoor ponies roam its craggy landscape. Stunning forests, rivers, wetlands and tors (rock formations) break up the open moors and create one of the most diverse ecosystems in the country.
Although Dartmoor may seem vast and wild it in fact holds a deep and rich history of human settlement. This incredible history can be found across the National Park and the fascinating stories that it holds. A walk across Dartmoor feels like stepping back in time. With a never-ending number of trails and paths, it is a hiker’s haven and with beautiful villages dotted around, accessible too.
On our retreats around Dartmoor, we take the time to truly enjoy this unique landscape and everything its diversity has to offer. Not only do we go hiking to experience the beauty of it but also enjoy wild foraging walks and talks to learn about the edible and medicinal plants accessible. Our venue is perfectly positioned to do just that, being surrounded by woodland, the moorland brook and walking distance out and onto the moor.
