Just the beginning of the season, but always a pleasure to walk alongside the river, watch the rock-jumping and admire the old clapper bridge. Strolled up to Badgers Holt to enjoy an ice cream at a picnic table by the river and watch the many peacocks strut around. Useful public conveniences in the car park, too.

This is a really nice little place, well off the beaten track. Of course that means driving down country roads, often feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere. Once you arrive of course there will be others around when the weather isn't terrible. Dartmeet itself is an ideal spot to enjoy and picnic and some relaxation time. It's ideal... More

This is a delightful place to visit with your picnic where you can sit on the riverside and enjoy the views. The weather was perfect calm, warm spring weather when we visited so my husband, daughter and dog enjoyed clambering over the boulders. There's a car park, toilet facilities and small kiosk for ice cream, drinks and children's toys alongside... More

We had a very pleasant short stroll along the river bank watching the water tumble through the boulders. The water is very clear. Advisable to choose when you visit as the car park and surrounding area can be heaving with visitors.

Place is lovely during the off peak season and very crowded during summer. We were there in March when it was peaceful and quiet, and enjoyed walking along the river, climbing over the boulders, taking photos etc. The cafe nearby does lovely home cooked meals with a great variety of choice. Or you can take a picnic and sit next... More

It is so nice to see and wade in a clear water river, also the boulders really add to the place, you can see trout if you look carefully, and on a sunny day you ought to take a piknik. The kids will love this place, and you can really tune into nature here, also some very old trees, Hope... More

A fantastic place to wander over the moorland next to the river. The kids loved jumping on the stepping stones and dropping pooh sticks in the river. Lots of lovely old trees and moorland.
