Around and about
Belstone is a picturesque village perched on the northern fringe of Dartmoor. Wild ponies and sheep that tend to wander on the village green often outnumber locals. The village has considerable history - don't be caught misbehaving or you may find yourself in the ancient village stocks ! There is a medieval church, Post Office in the village hall, a pub / restaurant and riding stables as well as the beautiful moor itself right on your doorstep.
The village lies around 25 miles west of Exeter with access from the A30 dual carriageway, the nearest junction (Okehampton) being only 2 miles away.
This is a wonderful walking county among some of the grandest tors on Dartmoor. High Willays (the highest point in southern England) can be reached in a morning's walk from the front door. Cranmere Pool is equally accessible being the prime goal for many walkers where Dartmoor's oldest letterbox is found and where four key Devonshire rivers each have their source.
Many places of great interest are only a short drive away - Lydford Gorge, Castle Drogo (both National Trust), Fingle Bridge and Haytor rocks to name but a few. In addition, many cycle routes run through the area as does the well-known Tarka Trail.
Belstone is in the heart of devon. The north and south coastal resorts such a Bideford, Torbay and Exmouth are in easy reach. Cornwall is just a 20 minute drive along the A30.
