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.

                                                              Lovely relaxing getaway holiday

                                                              Just returned from a week at a The Hide. If you are thinking of booking do so, great location and extremely relaxing, we will be booking again. My husband and I went for a much needed week away, plus the dogs of course. We didn't eat out at the local pubs unfortunately but managed lunch in Widdecombe on the Moor which was fantastic. The Hide is beautifully decorated and just feels really relaxed, lovely little touches all over the place to make your stay enjoyable. The hot tub after a day walking on Dartmoor is a must!

                                                              Well equipped cottage

                                                              5 of us enjoyed a 3 night stay in Tilley's Cottage. Very well equipped with lovely comfortable beds. Nikki was great at responding to email enquiries before we arrived. Parking in local car park not a problem as we were able to stop outside to unload. Very handy to have large co-op and newsagent close by and butcher/deli next door. Had a lovely meal in the White Hart. Used Moretonhampstead as a base to travel round the area - Chagford worth a visit and we had a nice walk along the river in Bovey Tracey where the House of Marbles is an interesting place to visit. Would definitely recommend the cottage and the area.

                                                              We enjoyed a wonderful Easter at this lovely property. Set in a beautiful hidden away location, it is still within easy reach of Chagford with its many eateries. All our wants and needs were catered for with modern fixtures and fittings of the highest quality and beautiful decor. The welcome hamper was a particularly nice gesture from the owners, who were very welcoming. Of particular noteworthiness is the beautiful garden, with its wonderful bird life and we were thrilled to be visited by deer in the rear garden most mornings. A truly wonderful property from which to explore the beauty of Dartmoor.
