When it comes to experiencing the unspoiled and unique environment of the wilds of Dartmoor, nothing compares to wild camping.
Dartmoor National Park is the only place in England where you can go wild camping, and with just you, a tent, a torch and gas oven, this is as close as you can get to nature.
By escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life you can discover the moors and experience the solitude and tranquillity, the towns and villages and the magic of Dartmoor at night when the dark skies are illuminated with stars.
Now while of all Dartmoor is common land and owned by someone, a handy piece of legislation called the Dartmoor Commons Act means that individuals and small groups are allowed to camp for up to two nights in the same place without asking permission.
As long as you choose your spot sensibly the untouched and challenging environment is open for exploration.
