The Teign Gorge
The pretty village of Drewsteignton is close to one of Dartmoor National Park's most wonderful attractions: the Teign Gorge. There are many wooded valleys, or cleaves, that fringe the Park, but, in our opinion, the Teign Gorge is up there with the best.

Spend a few days here and it becomes clear that Dartmoor is far from being the bleak, wet place some claim it to be. Walking the gorge is an amazing experience. Add to that one of the South West's most popular National Trust properties, Castle Drogo and Gardens, and you have the makings of a perfect weekend break.

Other local walks include stunning sections of the Two Moors Way and Dartmoor Way.

Gateway towns and high moors
Drewsteignton is close to a couple of Dartmoor's 'gateway towns'. Chagford is delightful. Moretonhampstead offers great access to the heart of the National Park. Walking the Dartmoor Way from the Teign Gorge to Moretonhampstead is a joy in late spring/early summer when the wild flowers are out.

Other gorges and valleys
If the Teign Gorge is your thing then we'd also recommend visiting similar areas within the Park. Try the Dart Gorge and Lydford Gorge and Waterfall, Lustleigh Cleave and the Avon Dam Reservoir Valley. Burrator Reservoir is great, too.
