Dartmoor is one of the last true wildernesses you'll find in southern England. A few days spent here losing yourself in the quiet of the moors will remind you how good it feels to get away from it all, while the bustling market town of Tavistock and the pretty village of Buckfastleigh provide pleasant diversions.
Okehampton to Ivybridge and everything in between, holiday cottages on Dartmoor will be a cosy rural retreat to watch the wild ponies from. A pet friendly area with the largest open space in southern England – Dartmoor National Park, and even part of Exmoor lies within the Devon’s county boundaries – so bring your dog. Over half our Dartmoor cottages are dog friendly, so pack the walking boots and dog bowl!
Use your dog as an excuse to get out and about in the fresh air and absorb some cultural heritage as Dartmoor has some of the best archaeological sites in western Europe. It’s near enough the south coast of Devon for a day trip to the sea, but has corners that feel utterly remote for a proper get-away in the west country.
