Things to Do in Moretonhampstead, Devon Dartmoor Letterboxes

One fun pursuit which is unique to Dartmoor is letterboxing. It is a type of treasure hunting and people have hidden ‘letterboxes’ all over Dartmoor. Guidebooks can be bought listing clues to letterbox locations and when discovered, the letterboxes usually hold a visitor’s book for signing, and a rubber stamp which can be used to stamp the finder’s record book. The stamp and visitor’s book are then hidden again for the next seeker.

Walking

The most common pastime on Dartmoor is hill walking, and visitors should come well prepared with proper hiking boats for the rough, sometimes wet terrain. The spectacular scenery and remoteness draw many walkers to the area.

Climbing

The granite tors of Dartmoor provide challenges for climbers of all abilities, particularly around Haytor and Leigh Tor.

We cooked from fresh (mostly local produce) most nights with no problem - facilities were great. The view from the property is lovely and everything as advertised. We hope to return sometime maybe with family as there was plenty of room. However, the peace and quiet was perfect for just the two of us. Paul was very helpful and available close by - we had no cause to call on him during our stay as everything was perfect. We chose this property because we wanted somewhere that would be lovely to stay inside if the weather was poor. The weather was mostly fine though so we went for many walks locally and on the nearby moors. We explored the local coast, towns and villages which are beautiful - a great base for exploring the area.

The place was very clean and well equipped, and a good central position in Topsham for shops and pubs. We were able to use the loc al train into Exeter one evening, only a few minutes walk from the cottage.
