Enjoy a special break away at this wonderful quality hotel - The Moorland Hotel on Dartmoor National Park. Owned and operated by the same owners of the outstanding 4* Belgrave Sands Hotel in Torquay, the Moorland occupies a wonderful rural location. We include some great excursions out with plenty of interest or you may choose to just sit back and relax in the comfortable surroundings. The hotel is literally ‘on’ Dartmoor, so bring your walking shoes and head out for a stroll on The Moor. Hay Tor is only a 20 minute walk from the hotel with wonderful views over this iconic landscape. Return to the hotel to relax with a drink in the stylish bar. If you like upmarket food – we have you covered! The Moorland is renowned for its superb evening cuisine set in the lovely, stylish restaurant. Limited places!



After being collected from your local pick up point around 8.30am, we have refreshment stops as required before arriving at the hotel late afternoon. Settle into your comfortable surroundings and enjoy the views before a delicious dinner. 


Memorable day today and one of the highlights of this short break as we head to Dartmouth. From here we board our River Boat for a wonderful circular boat trip viewing Bayards Cove, Kingswear and Dartmouth Castles, Britannia Royal Naval College, Dittisham Village, Sir Walter Raleigh's Boathouse, Greenway Quay and The Estate of the late Dame Agatha Christie. A lovely addition to your day out in Devon. Full, informative (and usually amusing!) commentary is provided. Followed by free time in the town. 

After a hearty breakfast we will be joined by our excellent local guide who will explore the history and landscape of the dramatic
Dartmoor National Park. Always a very popular day out for our customers with plenty of stories and a stop for lunch during the day. Returning late afternoon for free time in the hotel.

Excursion to
Buckland Abbey. A wonderful National Trust property, Buckland has 700 years of history but is perhaps most famously linked with one of England’s most famous seafarers, Sir Francis Drake. The Abbey is part museum, part house, and filled with treasures such as the legendary Drake’s Drum. Surrounded by meadows, orchards, woodlands and lovely gardens.  National Trust member discount - £12. Returning for free time at the hotel.


We head home this morning, with refreshment stops as required before arriving back in the local area around 3.00pm.
