I love Exeter, it's a beautiful part of the country and one I visited regularly whilst at university in Plymouth.
It's busy, modern and most importantly, only half an hour from my favourite spot in the UK...
Home to the largest concentration of bronze age remains in the whole UK, standing stones, and a number of myths and legends not to mention the famous 'Hound of the Baskervilles'.
It even has two 'mountains' - Yes Tor and High Willhays are both above 2000ft.
As a child I spent a year living in Buckfast and so we were out on the moor regularly.
Dartmeet, specifically, holds fond memories of family days out, including one time my Grandad was trying to show off on the stepping stones, before disappearing in to the River Dart and coming out somewhat soaked!
At the time I was planning on joining the Royal Navy after graduation (how things & knees change) and so I thought if I prepped as much as possible, it would be good for fitness levels!
As ever, I was not disappointed.
The moors were frozen, empty and windswept, but by making the most of the opportunity to GetOutside I was rewarded with this beautiful sunset.
It has some very famous residents.
There's also so much to do if you don't want to walk. You could visit the famous Dartmoor Zoo, take a train journey on the South Devon Railway, rock climb or even go hunting pixies!
If you're stuck for ideas, then check out this blog by fellow OS GetOutside Champions Two Blondes Walking who know more about the moors than anyone I've ever met! The official tourism website for Dartmoor is packed with ideas too!
