“ 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.

Dartmeet, Princetown


Indoor & Outdoor rustic Venue in heart of Dartmoor alongside the beautiful River Dart

Our location is perfect for all your special occasions: weddings, family gatherings, Christmas parties, birthday celebrations, walking groups, adventure sports (kayaking, climbing, cycling) and retreats ( team building, yoga, etc.)

With venue space both indoors and outdoors we offer a range of event opportunities and creative possibilities. With the wild river dart flowing past, Yar tor and Sharp tor sat above us and trees dotting along the valley it truly is a stunning hidden gem.

We have on site accommodation for 20 and details on other local accommodation. Our venue can host up to 100 guests. We have a licensed bar that will be staffed keeping your guests happy! We can recommend suppliers for catering or you can use your own. We have had pizza vans and BBQs at our location too!
