Things to Do in Moretonhampstead, Devon Dartmoor Letterboxes

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.

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.

Perfect for a family Christmas

5 of 5
Seven of us stayed here for our Xmas break. Plenty of comfortable beds. Beautifully warm house with log fire as well. Kitchen very well equipped. Would definitely recommend Great Cleave. It’s also ideal as a holiday home for walkers although the weather didn’t allow us to walk. Barbara is a lovely host.
