Local Area


At Mitchelcroft we have put together some car tours of the area which we think take in the best that Dartmoor and South Devon have to offer and we have also written some self guided walks both from the house and within a short drive.

DARTMOOR – A wilderness unique in the British Isles, walk it, cycle it or explore it by road. Viewpoints galore with old inns strategically positioned for coffee, lunch or tea.
