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 thrilling and joyful experience that can be included is an hour-long horse drawn carriage ride. Not only is this a wonderful way to get into the heart of Devon’s narrow lanes and bridlepaths, but it also offers the opportunity to get up meet the magnificent Shire Horses that will be pulling your carriage. 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.  Please note that both of these experiences are subject to availability, and if you prefer not to include either as part of your day, that is absolutely fine.

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!
