Quality hostel accommodation in the beautiful Dartmoor national park!
Number of nights - 3. Cost - £210.
Join us for 3 nights over the Easter holiday weekend in the fabulous Dartmoor National Park.
This trip will allow us to explore one of England's most beautiful and mysterious landscapes. Swirling mists, granite tors, wide open spaces, attractive towns and villages, deep bogs, ponies, a grim-looking prison, Sherlock Holmes - many images come to mind when thinking of Dartmoor.
From our accommodation routes can take us onto the high moor where stone circles, bronze-age huts, medieval deserted villages and old mining sites can all be seen amongst wonderful natural scenery.
This will be a fantastic trip into one of the largest and wildest area of open country in the country. probably the only place in Southern Britain where you can experience a feeling of true wilderness!
