Sightseeing
Burrator Reservoir is situated within Dartmoor, and the tranquil water and surrounding mixed woodland contrasts sharply with the open moor and the rugged Dartmoor tors. A trip here can be combined with a walk across the moors, or enjoyed as a trip of its own with plenty to do- from walking and taking in the views, to bank fishing for rainbow and brown trout from the banks (just be sure to get a permit from the garage in Yelverton). Devon has relatively few lakes, but the situation and quality of these make them a hidden gem in Devon’s crown.

Leather Tor One Of The Moor's Most Dramatic Views With alpine trees surrounding the base of its peak, magnificent views over the southern moor and Burrator Reservoir nearby, Leather Tor has some of the most dramatic vistas around. A fin of rock rising steeply from the surrounding landscape, Leather Tor is great for a scramble. Despite its modesty compared to Dartmoor’s highest points, Leather Tor has steep drops from the granite stacks and can be teamed with Sharpitor and Peek Hill for an excellent short circular walk.
