Dartmoor National Park's landscape is as dramatic as its weather. From its striking granite tors to steep wooded river valleys and from swathes of heather covered moorland to tucked away villages and hamlets. It is a land of contrasts - some people come to experience the tranquility by getting away from it all, whilst others come to get active. You could check the weather forecast before you set off and, if you are planning to visit the north part of Dartmoor, get timings for live military firing. It has a lot more to offer than you would imagine so get out your outdoor gear and start exploring.
