Dartmoor Prison was built by Napoleonic Prisoners as their own jail and then it housed American War of Independence prisoners of war. This museum takes you through the fascinating history of the prison.

“If you are up for a splurge this upmarket hotel does a fancy cream tea in luxurious surroundings (you may need to book). It also has a nice bar with roaring fire in winter that non hotel guests are welcome to use.”

“Castle Drogo is situated high above the Teign Gorge. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens for self-made millionaire Julius Drewe. It looks ancient, but this remarkable building was only constructed 100 years ago, the last castle ever built in England. From the beginning it has suffered from water penetration and is now undergoing a 6 year conservation project that will last until the end of 2019 to make it watertight. Inside you can explore the castle‘s refreshed layout and precious treasures displayed in new ways. Some rooms have become storage areas whilst others are ‘back to normal’. Outside the castle, stroll around the formal gardens or explore the Teign Valley with its ancient gorge, teeming with wildlife. Or recharge at the café with a traditional Devon cream tea or tuck into a slice of cake.”

“This is a great walk over the moor, around Fernworthy Reservoir and on to the pub for a nice lunch and either a return journey or a short taxi ride back.”

“We are so lucky to have Dartmoor and Exmoor, two of the most beautiful National Parks in the UK, just down the road. Dartmoor and Exmoor both have their own unique characters... Dartmoor is a wild, wide-open place filled with mystery. Exmoor is more craggy and filled with secret, hidden treasures such as Tarr Steps.”
