Welcome to
Dartmoor National Park

Wild, open moorlands and deep river valleys, with a rich history and rare wildlife, Dartmoor is a unique place

Coronavirus and Dartmoor

Our priority is to help people stay safe – those who visit and the people who live and work in the National Park. We have re-opened our car parks and some of our toilets. Our Visitor Centres at Haytor and Princetown are now open. If you come to Dartmoor things will be different, we are asking you to make a few changes to protect yourself and others to stay safe.
