Chagford

Set in the northern part of Dartmoor National Park, Chagford is a picturesque town that is surprisingly well provisioned, boasting four pubs and a wide range of shops. The River Teign runs through the town and you can go on a riverside walk to find the Fingle Bridge, a local beauty spot. With the largest open-air swimming pool in the south-west and public tennis courts, you can also enjoy your leisure time. Chagford holds music, literary and film festivals annually as well as regular exhibitions of paintings and poetry.

However, most people staying here are coming to wonder at the beauty of Dartmoor. With over 200 square miles of beautiful moorland to discover it is a rambler's dream dotted with historic sites such as Grimspound and dramatic scenery including the famous tors.
