A number of these locations are used as ‘Walk Start’ points for the walks on this site – just click on the Car Park Darticons to view them.
|Bellever Forest||YHA Dartmoor
Cream teas, Camping Pods and a lovely Camping Site by the river.
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..
|Meavy||The 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.
