Meldon Hill

If you're looking to walk in the Chagford area, we'd recommend yomping to the top of Meldon Hill from the Ring O'Bells pub. It's a slog but the views are incredible on a clear day. Meldon's also a great spot to watch the sun set over the high moor.


Batworthy Corner and the high moor

For those wanting to walk the high ground above Chagford, head up to Batworthy Corner. Kestor Rock is nearby.

We'd suggest you wander up to the Wild Tor area for views across to the highest ground in southern England.


Teign Gorge

Alternatively, walk from the Ring O' Bells pub to the Teign Gorge. This is one of the most spectacular places in Dartmoor National Park. From Chagford, you follow the Two Moors Way along a bank of the River Teign. You'll see the National Trust's Castle Drogo on a spur of land above the mouth of the gorge. There's a pub in the local beauty spot Fingle Bridge at the far end of the Teign Gorge so you can wander between pubs.


Fernworthy Forest

If you like forests then we'd recommend heading up to Fernworthy Forest.



In addition to walking, you can swim at Chagford Pool or wild swim at Drewe's Pool on the River Teign.


Visitor attractions

Visitor attractions include the National Trust's Castle Drogo and the superb Stone Lane Gardens.


Dartmoor's prehistory
