An idyllic holiday cottage in the heart of Lustleigh on Devon’s Dartmoor

BBC walks Dartmoor

Episode 4 of the BBC’s “Walks of Life” aired this morning and focused on Dartmoor.  The presenter, JB Gill, undertakes a 12 mile circular walk from Princetown.  The program touches on Dartmoor Prison, Dartmoor Farming, Dartmoor’s spiritual side, the hound of the baskervilles, ghost stories, the importance of Dartmoor’s peat bogs, Dartmoor’s bronze age stone rows and artistic photography.

A fascinating program with great footage of Dartmoor’s mysterious and wonderful scenery.  Well worth a viewing,  it’s available on the BBC iPlayer for the next 29 days here.  It’s a great introduction to Dartmoor for any who are thinking of taking a walking holiday on Dartmoor.  Why not check out our self catering Dartmoor holiday cottage at the same time – it’s the perfect base camp with wonderful walks on the doorstep.
