Group Travel on Dartmoor

Why Dartmoor is great for group travel

Steeped in history, with a huge number of archaeological places of interest such as ancient stone rows and bronze age settlements, Dartmoor also offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy absolute peace and quiet, time to sit watching our herds of beautiful wild ponies with their enchanting foals where they have roamed free for 4000 years.

Whether you’re looking to set up a regular coaching holiday package to the region or want to plan a one off trip for your friends, family or workmates on a team building mission, Dartmoor has many great reasons why it is ideal for group travel!

Something for All Interests

From days out to places of historical and heritage interest to steam train rides or family attractions, the list is endless. Visits to a vineyard or museum for the older guests, petting farms and theme parks for younger ones, every type of interest can be catered for in the Dartmoor area.

For North Dartmoor take the A30 dual carriageway towards Cornwall. You can access a selection of North Dartmoor locations from the A30.
