War Horse - Michael Morpurgo's children's book, adapted for stage and film has many references to Devon, including Dartmoor, Narracott farm, where Albert (Jeremy Irvine) brings up Joey the horse, is Ditsworthy Warren House, an abandoned cottage a couple of miles southeast of Sheepstor, on the southwest edge of Dartmoor in south Devon.The nearby local village is Meavy, and just to the north lies Burrator Reservoir, the body of water above which Albie races Joey against the new-fangled motor car of the landlord's son.
The rolling hills and rocky outcrops are Dartmoor National Park, mainly the area around Combestone Tor, Haytor and Ringmoor Down. The wild and mysterious moors have a long history in fiction, most famously as the setting for Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mystery, Hound of the Baskervilles.
