Groupon’s Guide To Dartmoor National Park
Covering 368 square miles, Dartmoor National Park is dominated by open spaces of high moors made famous by the work of Emily Brontë. With miles of paths, tracks, 160 rocky outcrops, tors and open moorland which can be explored on foot, bike or horseback, Dartmoor is a suitable place for trying out activities such as climbing, caving and geocaching.
Across the moors, travellers will find small workshops, artist studios and galleries showcasing artwork such as pottery, sculpture, leather work and textiles, while small farms sell fresh veggies, honey, breads, beef, lamb, cheese, and other products in the lively town centres. With 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 Dartmoor beef and local ale pies.
