Experience the Beauty of Dartmoor’s Landscape on your Next Staycation 

 One of the most striking features of Dartmoor is its stunning natural scenery. From rolling hills and vast open spaces to deep valleys and bubbling rivers, the landscape here is truly breath-taking. There are many opportunities to explore this natural beauty during your staycation. We offer guided walks each week of around 4 miles, perfect for those heading out to the area for the first time. We also have a good choice of self-guided walk information available, so you can get out and enjoy Dartmoor at your own pace. Be sure to take a walk or bike ride along The Granite Way, an 11-mile trail that passes through beautiful scenery and several historic sites. 

Explore Dartmoor’s Fascinating History and Culture 

Dartmoor is a region that is both beautiful and rich in history. If this is something that interests you, there are many significant landmarks that you won’t want to miss next time you visit the Manor & Ashbury Resorts. For example, nearby Okehampton Castle is a fascinating fortress that was built in the 11th century and partially destroyed during the English Civil War. If you’re interested in industrial history, you’ll want to check out Finch Foundry, a museum that showcases the water-powered machinery used to produce farm tools and household items in the early 19th century. For a taste of medieval history, Lydford Castle and Saxon Town are worth exploring. No matter what your interests are, there’s plenty to see and do on a staycation in Okehampton!
