About YHA Dartmoor

If you want to get away from it all for an outdoor activity break, YHA Dartmoor is the perfect spot. The hostel is surrounded by the open moorland and forest of Dartmoor National Park, with access to a network of off-road routes for walking and cycling holidays - it’s a comfortable, child-friendly, rural retreat and provides a perfect base for family rambles. The famous Dartmoor ponies often pay us a visit from the open moorland – always a favourite with visiting children.

Manager recommends

  • With this stunning Dartmoor National Park accommodation as your base, you can enjoy the tranquillity of a picnic by the East Dart River or, for a great outdoor activity break, the exhilaration of walking up Bellever Tor to take in the stunning views. Explore Bellever Forest and discover a wealth of wildlife, archaeology and grazing Dartmoor ponies.
