This is a wonderfully varied tour that encompasses so much of what Dartmoor is about, including myths and legends, bronze age settlements, beautiful views, country inns, desolate moorland and cream teas! Carefully selected photo stops and short walks to hidden views not seen from the road leave memorable impressions of some of the most stunning scenery in the United Kingdom!

A private and exclusive guided tour of the museum associated with the history of quirky and world famous Dartmoor Prison will fascinate you, and I’m confident that you will remember the whole day for all the right reasons. As an alternative to this, we can go back out on to the beautiful Moors in the afternoon for a sheepdog experience, going out with a shepherd to see him and his magnificent dog in action – you hear all about what it’s like to live and work in such a harsh environment, and actually witness it first hand.

However, we don’t want to give too much away as it really is a day to experience in the flesh, with some wonderful added extras. If you are a fan of Hound of the Baskervilles, you will also find out some fascinating facts about this greatest of detective stories!
