The West Country region

Dartmoor: "the last great wilderness in Southern England". Great rock-tors top many of its often heather-covered hills. Marvellous for walking, riding, tor-climbing, picnicking, kite-flying, pony-trekking and, if you're at all energetic, not seeing other people. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. All is protected from caravans, tents and most ugliness by being in the Dartmoor National Park.

The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half has the most spectacular tors, best wooded river valleys, a few villages (like Widecombe, Buckland) in green-field 'oases'. The moor's eastern edge is the softest, most wooded, most popular: Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Lustleigh and Bovey Tracey are among its best villages, and the river Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley. The Dart(s) – two of them rise in the moor's middle and join at Dartmeet – is/are equally beautiful all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Tavy Cleave, on the latter, is the western moor's most dramatic place. The quality of a pub can change so quickly we hesitate to recommend, but there are plenty of them; and of places to ride or pony-trek.

Dartmoor

Bovey Tracey: large village (shops, pubs, restaurants) on Dartmoor's south-eastern edge. 2 miles away is Haytor, one of the moor's most spectacular tors. Good golf, 4 miles; riding and many good village pubs locally. Newton Abbot (swimming pool/leisure centre), 7 miles; sea/beaches (Teignmouth, Shaldon), 10 miles.

"Lovely place to stay"

Despite atrocious weather, we booked to stay at Appletree Cottage as we were house hunting in the area. The cottage is lovely, but for a cottage surprisingly roomy and as I am over 6ft tall, no trauma… More

Thank you very much for your kind review, I am so glad that you enjoyed your holiday at Apple Tree Cottage. I hope that your house hunting was successful, and that we might see you again in the future.
