Things to do on Dartmoor

Although there is plenty to see and do in Lustleigh, the Dartmoor National Park is one of Britain’s Breathing Spaces covering 368 square miles of Devon, full of breathtaking landscapes, family fun and adventure.  Our holiday home is the perfect base to explore Dartmoor and Devon to get the most from your holiday making it one to remember.

Whilst many people come to Dartmoor to visit places of natural beauty and enjoy the stunning scenery, many come for the abundance of walking routes to suit all tastes and abilities.  Dartmoor also boasts a variety of more adventurous activities: cycle routes, both on and off road, horse-riding, climbing, bouldering, letterboxing, geo-caching, river swimming, shooting, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

In addition Dartmoor offers a vast array of charming towns and villages to enjoy, yet no stay would be complete without exploring some of Devon’s coastal towns and beaches.

There are a host of Attractions to entertain all age groups and fantastic places to eat not forgetting picnicking – you can even take the Dartmoor Cream Tea challenge.

We appreciate that holidays are precious so to help you get the most out of your stay at our Dartmoor holiday cottage, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 things we think you should do.
