This is within Dartmoor so the scenery going here is great. You'd need a couple of hours to do this place justice. There are several trails depending on stamina with the beautiful river winding through. An area near the cafe has some wildlife like meerkats,...More

Decided to visit these falls in Dartmoor with adult son. Expensive for a couple of hours. Trails are either simple or treacherous! Red route involved tackling boulder clambering and steep ravines with steps. A serious workout for a couple of oap's! Needed a hand up...More
