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.

It has everything you need for a self catering pubs fish and chippy shops well within easy walking distance. The bed is a 3/4 double which took a few days to get use to lol. The sea is a two minute walk down the road besides the house. The garden is great to come back to for a pre evening drinks and to catch the last rays of sun. A lovely little house.
