Bellever ForestYHA Dartmoor
DartmeetBrimpts Farm:

Cream teas, Camping Pods and a lovely Camping Site by the river.

Badgers Holt:

This diner/ restaurant serves great lunches. In the summer months a small ‘kiosk’ also opens up in the Dartmeet car park - and the ice creams are terrific!
The Forest Inn at Hexworthy:

Only a stone's throw from Dartmeet this lovely pub was frequented by none other than William Crossing himself!

For all your Pixie needs.. both wonderful and strange..
MeavyThe Royal Oak Inn
Large Dartmoor National Park Car Park.
Possibly you have to pay there now?
There is another, smaller car park just over the road (behind the trees) and a larger car park within Bellever Forest (that is pay and display from April 1st I believe).

The Warren House Inn:The fire here is said to be ‘always in’!
Large Car Park: Car parking charges were introduced here recently and so parking for several days may now be an issue?
Toilet Facilities are available at the car park – but you’ll need 20p!
Fox Tor Cafe:

The ‘FTC’ is an absolute must to visit whilst in Princetown, it has a real outdoory cafe feel (think ‘Pete’s Eats’!) with plenty of rab jackets and craghopper trousers sat around chatting!

The Plume of Feathers: (or just ‘The Feathers’), Pub with Camping Site, Bunkhouse and B&B Accommodation.

The Prince of Wales, Pub with Camping and Bunkhouse Accommodation.
Princetown Post Office Stores:

A Londis at the time of typing - very useful in stocking up on those pre-camping last minute needs. Like doughnuts. And wine.
South Brent
