We also stock an extensive range of useful items for the outdoor enthusiast such as maps, publications about Dartmoor and guide books, in addition to gifts, cards, clothing and stationery.
We are situated in Princetown at the heart of Dartmoor and the Centre is easily accessible by road from Exeter or Plymouth and by public transport throughout the year. Princetown has several pubs and restaurants, good car parking facilities and public toilets with access for the disabled.
Princetown provides an excellent gateway to both the south and north moors for hill walkers and our Centre staff will be pleased to help you plan a suitable route.
The weather can be very changeable on the high moors and walkers should be adequately equipped for anything more than a short stroll.
The history of the Duchy Hotel, now the National Park Visitor Centre - Princetown will give you a good insight into the past uses of the building.
