ADVENTURE at the hart of Dartmoor
On Dartmoor you can smell the fresh air. You can hear the quiet. You can touch the calm. On Dartmoor you can see the stress fall away and you feel alive again. Dartmoor brings you to your senses.
The Moor has an untamed wild that draws travellers looking for escape, tranquillity and adventure. It is a place where you can be at peace; phones off, screens shut down and the world put on silent.
Dartmoor has long drawn the bold and adventurous. The unique, unspoilt nature of the Moor offers a challenge that is a lure for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. It is popular with groups who enjoy shooting, fishing and golf. The Hotel is not only the ideal base to explore from but is the perfect relaxation after an invigorating day on the Moor.
We are placed in the centre of the county with Dartmoor on the doorstep and stunning coastlines to the north and south – both dramatically different in their natural beauty and attractions.
If walking is your passion, you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you prefer a sporting break, you’ll find lots on offer including shooting, fishing and golf. Moretonhampstead has an established community of artists with courses on everything from making shoes, to crafting a felt tea cosy and creative cake baking. The local arts centre at Greenhill is a two–minute stroll away and well worth a visit to find fantastic locally crafted items and interesting exhibitions. The town even has its own vintage car collection at the Moretonhampstead Motor Museum.
Our staff at the hotel will be delighted to help you look for things to do – please just ask!
