Dartmoor National Park
When people think of Dartmoor National Park they think of walking, but there is much more to Dartmoor than you could ever imagine. The Park has more archaeological remains than anywhere else in Europe, and Dartmoor Ponies have lived on the moor for a long time. Written records about the ponies go back as far as AD1012.
The Dartmoor landscape is simply stunning. Steven Spielberg filmed Warhorse here and said “I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.”
We think it has enough to offer to keep you coming back for a lifetime.
