Beacon Plain, Devon


  • Located in South Brent, Devon, South West England, England
  • The high ground of Dartmoor National Park can be split into two areas. Roughly speaking, north of the B3212 is the high north plateau. South of the B3212 is the high south plateau. Fringing the south plateau are a number of 'plains' or large areas of exposed, flat ground without trees. Beacon Plain is one of these. 'Beacon' refers to Ugborough Beacon and Eastern Beacon. To the south west is Western Beacon
  • Above all else, this a very beautiful place. The views across South Devon and this section of Dartmoor National Park are exceptional. There is also plenty of history to enjoy in the area. From ancient stone rows to burial chambers, granite crosses to mining heritage, it's a fascinating place
  • In our opinion, the easiest way to access Beacon Plain is via Harford Moor Gate or Peek Moor Gate
