Creative Dartmoor

An amazing wealth of creative talent

Dartmoor attracts people from all over the world, and not simply just for a holiday. An amazing wealth of talented artists, gifted craftsmen and women, photographers, jewellery makers, felt workers, knitters, writers and film makers have chosen to make Dartmoor and the surrounding areas area their home.

Many of the towns on the outskirts of the moor are home to galleries who showcase the work of some of these gifted artists and makers, providing great support for them and a lovely focus for visitors and tourists who enjoy seeing the results of their labours!

There’s so much inspiration here on Dartmoor, the vast open expanses of extraordinary beauty, towering, breath-taking granite tors and hidden magical forests, rivers and woodland seem to bring out the most creative side in so many people.

There are festivals, events, shows, exhibitions, fairs and galleries, book shops, craft shops, gift shops, and workshops literally all over Dartmoor and the surrounding towns and villages.

We hope that the listing below will inspire you to take the opportunity to call in to one of the locations and that your visit to Dartmoor will be all the richer for it. 

Myths, mystery and magic are everywhere on Dartmoor, and our artists, makers and artisans reflect that in their superb work. Go out and enjoy!
