Dartmoor

Dartmoor is not just about the landscape; there's a lot more to it than that. It's not just about the ponies, or the tors, the history or the heritage; but that's a good start.

We stayed on a Groupon deal and took our dog, very good value and it was nice not to be looked down on for coming on a Groupon deal as some places seem too a little. I love North Devon and the location is very good for exploring all the local sites. We ate from the bar menu and the food was very tasty. Recommended:-)
