Such a beautiful part of the World. Went with my children and their grandparents. All of us loved it as much as the other. Fabulous for family time.

The visitor centre has everything needed - information, shop, toilets, car park and catering from the Dartmoor Farmers Association. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a great visit - Haytor is fantastic!
