on the moor with kids - Dartmoor - England

Walking the moorland of Dartmoor, feeling the cold rain, the damp soil, the strong wind and the loneliness of the landscape.

This wouldn't sound very funny -especially for kids- unless the wilderness of the place. If the walks can be demanding, they are nevertheless easily accessible. Be prepared! A good equipment is needed to enjoy the walks until the end.

As the sun goes down, the best way to celebrate and enjoy the rest after the walk is to have a traditionnally Devon "cream tea" (tea, scones, jam and clotted cream) at the Two-Bridges Hotel. Comfortably seated on the leather sofas by the open fire, under a portrait of Prince Charles, it's time or never to read again "The Hound of the Baskerville's".

A cosy place to stay nearby? Boyton farmhouse in the middle of the fields and sheeps at the step of the moor!
