the legends of dartmoor...

Big Cat’s, Bottomless Lakes, Stone Circles and of course… the Hound of the Baskervilles. For almost every rock, hill, town or field on Dartmoor there’s a mythical legend that goes with it. Each more exciting than the last. Now, whilst we couldn’t possibly confirm or deny any of these myths one thing is for sure. Dartmoor is WILD! Within five minutes of arriving it was easy to see why this place has so many interesting stories attached to it.

Dartmoor may look like a natural place, but, if you look more closely, you can see traces of past lives etched into the land itself. People have been using the moor for over 10,000 years, and you can see the signs of those who have settled here, farmed the land, and dug for resources such as tin, iron, silver and granite. If you look closely the area is steeped in history with sites of archeological importance still being uncovered to today.
