“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

42 Days of Summer on Dartmoor in Devon


There are so many things to do on Dartmoor whether you’re coming to Devon for your family holiday or you already live here but only have time to get out and about in the school holidays.

We decided to make life simpler and perhaps more fun for you by creating a day-by-day chart from you to pick and choose from! Many of the days are in Dartmoor National Park, and some will take you to the gorgeous surrounding area of Devon.

You can go off exploring by yourself armed only with a good map and a picnic, or you can take advantage of an experienced walking guide and let them show you the best places to explore.

If you enjoy cycling, horse-riding, swimming or climbing you can select the activity you fancy from this fun chart! There are special events for children, great attractions to visit, shows to enjoy and craft days to try your hand at.

Most importantly, have fun, and enjoy your time over the 42 Days of Summer in The Heart of Devon!
