Dartmoor National Park
Dartmoor is one of south England's wildest stretches of country. The landscape comprises both windswept summits and wooded valleys. Located in the heart of Devon, it is home to 33,000 people and visited by about 10 million more each year.
At 368 square miles, the public can roam freely on unenclosed, open moorland on both foot and horseback. There are also about 600 miles of public rights of way. The moor is a rich habitat for wildlife and has a wealth of archaeological remains.
Dartmoor is bounded to the north by Exeter and Okehampton, to the east by Newton Abbott, to the west by Tavistock and to the south by Plymouth. The B3212 runs through the middle of Dartmoor, with other access roads including A382 and B3357.
