Groupon’s Guide To Dartmoor National Park
Covering 368 square miles, Dartmoor National Park is dominated by the cool wide-open spaces of the high moors made famous in the works of Emily Brontë. With miles of paths, tracks, 160 rocky outcrops or tors and open moorland for exploring on foot, bike or horseback, Dartmoor is a suitable place to try out thrilling activities such as climbing, caving and geocaching.
Across the moors, travellers will find small workshops and artist studios or galleries showcasing original artwork such as pottery, sculpture, leatherwork and textiles, while small farms sell fresh veggies, honey, breads, beef, lamb, cheeses and other products in lively town centres. Boasting around 200 granite tors of all shapes and sizes, and a rich collection of bronze-age antiquities, history enthusiasts may discover a wealth of stone rows and circles, burial chambers and cairns, alongside the remains of roundhouses. In Bellever Forest, travellers may enjoy relaxing picnics by the East Dart River, while grazing Dartmoor ponies may be spotted in the area. After a day of exploration, tourists may tempt their taste buds with local dishes including the Dartmoor beef and local ale pies.
