Dartmoor is the perfect backdrop to a family holiday,lots of countryside for little ones to run around (and four-legged ones!), scenery to die for and photo opportunities around every corner. Wrap little ones up against the elements for windy walks out of season, jumping in muddy puddles and running through mounds of dry leaves in Autumn; it's the kind of stuff kids remember for years to come. Spring on Dartmoor brings fields of bounding lambs and brightly coloured daffodils with summer the time to overindulge in late afternoon barbecues and sundown tipples when the children have tired themselves out. Dartmoor is a family holiday destination for all ages.

The best family holidays start with a great place to stay and we've got 36 child-friendly holiday properties on Dartmoor to tempt you.
