Most people, when they think of Dartmoor tend to have in their minds the extraordinary areas encompassed in the central part of the moor.
Here you will find the famous town of Princetown, with its iconic prison, fascinating Dartmoor National Park Visitor Centre and the starting point for many fantastic walks.
Two Bridges and Postbridge are hugely popular tourist spots with their lovely bridges and central location. Also at Postbridge is a national park visitor centre, just across the road from Bellever Forest, where Heritage Dartmoor ponies are grazing as part of a conservation project.
Widecombe-in-the Moor is a must, with its lovely church and great pubs and cafes. Don’t forget the Widecombe Fair in September too, one of the most popular shows on Dartmoor.
