Dartmoor National Park Location

Campers in Dartmoor National Park won’t ever be lost for things to do. The landscape features in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse, has inspired poets, artists, photographers and authors. It’s easy to see why with fast flowing rivers, deep valleys and heather covered moorlands forming a picturesque landscape.

The moorlands are grazed by sheep, cattle and Dartmoor ponies who have roamed Dartmoor since pre-historic times. Hoof-prints of domesticated ponies dating back around 3,500 years were found on Dartmoor during an archaeological excavation in the 1970s!

The parks eight reservoirs offer fishing with some also being used for canoeing. Those camping in Dartmoor will find plenty of ways to make use of the 35,000 hectares of land which have both foot and horse riding access. For active campers the Two Moors way connects both Dartmoor and Exmoor so there is plenty of space to walk, run and cycle on your holiday.
