Welcome the start of spring with a family holiday in Dartmoor. Have fun trying new activities and enjoying time together in this amazing landscape.
With miles of paths, tracks and open moorland, you can spend your child friendly holiday exploring Dartmoor on foot, but why not bring your own bikes or hire them? Go cycling on the Granite and Gears routes from Princetown or along the traffic free Granite Way near Okehampton.
Test your skills at letterboxing, which originated in Dartmoor in 1854, for some really special things to do with kids. It combines orienteering with treasure hunting and puzzle solving and there are plenty of letterboxes to find, including the original one at Cranmere Pool in north Dartmoor.
However, for a real adventure, make like a brownie or scout and camp out under the stars, as Dartmoor is the only National Park in England where wild camping is allowed.
