Tourist centre closed at Bellever so no toilets. Enough parking around there and close enough to the forest and river area. Kids enjoyed hopping over the stones to other side of the river - which is not deep and wade-able. Lots of families there for...More

A beautiful area for walking cycling etc. What's happening to the toilet facilities? I pity the poor trees.

Just a pure delight with WC services avaiable secluded in the wooded surroundings but you do have to pay for parking. Very popular with school visits.

Sunny weekend, picnic, nature, no crowds, lovely trees, pretty streams with ancient stone bridges, escaped criminals from Dartmoor... (joking), what more can you want to get away from modern life ? We love this place.

My new favourite place. Absolutely lovely. Just be aware that most of the forest is currently closed off to the public.

When in Devon, you must take time to visit Dartmoor. Wonderful scenery, nature at its best. The walks around Bellever through forest and across the Moor, are excellent. The clapper bridge is lovely. (Chargeable) car park and toilet.

There is no set walk as such. Your walk could be as long as you wanted. Lots of boulders to negotiate near the river so beware your little dog doesn't overdo it.
