Dartmoor National Park is the largest open space in southern England, and has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The park covers 1,771 square kilometres (686 sq mi) so there is plenty to explore. Dartmoor is home to herds of deer, red squirrels and buzzards; it also boasts numerous walks for those who enjoy hiking or cycling through the countryside. For those looking for more exhilarating activities, you can go horse riding on Dartmoor’s bridleways or even take part in a game of paintball!
It's an incredibly diverse landscape where within only one day it can change from quiet rolling farmland with wooded river valleys to desolate misty peaks high above steep cliffs plunging down into deep ravines. It's a place that not only offers some of the most dramatic and exciting scenery in England, but has an incredibly rich and fascinating history.
