Exploring

Fingle Bridge ticks a lot of boxes - rain or shine it's great for families, dog walkers, hikers and beer drinkers. Fingle Bridge sits in the centre of a large wooded valley split by a river. It is a great place for a short stroll, a quick drink at the pub on the river, or a longer trek (we recommend the two-hour loop to Castle Drogo).

This is a great walk out of the very quaint Throwleigh. You'll pass Shelley Pool which is a great spot to plunge in to a bracing brook.

Park up by the old water plant above the village and walk straight on to the moor. You can pick a loop to suit your energy levels! head down in to the village after your walk for food and drink in the perfectly placed The Tors Inn

Food & Drink

An incredible place for good food and good beer after a walk on the moor. There are often more Dartmoor Ponies than people in The Tors Inn beer garden situated in the moor village of Belstone. The views are incredible.

A great pub run by great people. We are delighted to call The Tom Cobley our local - the food is excellent, so to is the beer selection. Sunday roasts are particularly recommended - book in advance!

A great butcher and farm shop, despite the curious name. Good quality, locally grown produce.

Sensational fish & chips - order ahead for collection - ask them to wrap the fish & chips separately. 15 minute drive away. Honestly delicious - the only takeaway in this guidebook.

A very, very good quality restaurant. Book in advance, the slightly-higher-than-usual price is very justifiable.

Great from breakfast, to dinner, to a cocktail. With live music from time to time.

Chagford is a beautiful collection of independent shops and eateries. The joys of Chagford are largely plain to see when you arrive in the village square... ...hidden away however is Chagford Outdoor Swimming Pool - great for kids!
