A yomp from our Dartmoor holiday cottage this weekend may strike fear into the heart.
Seeing a large horde of teenagers, soldiers, naval helicopters and search & rescue are individually concerning but all together!
Don’t fear, this is the amazing annual Dartmoor event “The Ten Tors“.
2,400 teenagers rise to the challenge of hiking across Dartmoor in teams of 6, covering distances from 35 to 55 miles over 2 days. They’ll be covering some of Dartmoor’s roughest terrain in changeable weather conditions, carrying all they need to get through the next 2 days, including wild camping!
We wish all the teams good luck, happy trails and safe home – they’re awesome.
After several weeks of refurbishment, The Cleave Pub is now fully open offering a complete menu.
With their fabulous food and warm welcome, it really is the perfect first port of call whilst holidaying at our self catering cottage on Dartmoor. It’s just a stone’s throw from the holiday cottage so an ideal evening out.
This Mondays Civilisations program on BBC1 at 7:30pm is all about Dartmoor artists and artisans. The preview has some great footage of Dartmoor, particularly Haytor, the most popular and iconic Tor which is only a few miles from our Dartmoor holiday cottage.
Take a look at our Dartmoor page to find out why it’s such a great place to holiday.
One of our favourite Dartmoor pubs, The Rugglestone Inn in Widecombe in the Moor, just won 2nd place in Countryfile Magazine’s award for Country Pub of the year!
