Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor is the largest open space in southern England.

It has wild open moorland, granite tors, stone walls, ancient woodland and an abundance of Dartmoor ponies. Dartmoor’s natural environment is unique. The granite massif rises out of the Devon lowlands to form a dramatic landscape with a distinctive geology, flora and fauna. The area boasts the largest number of archaeological remains in Europe, from stone circles and crosses to ancient villages, and is home to the rare fritillary butterfly.
