About Belstone

Sitting on the northern boundary of Dartmoor National Park, Belstone is a small rural village that is extremely well located for exploring the nearby rugged moorland, as well as the stunning countryside of North Devon. Keen walkers will find that Belstone is a great base due to the many trails and walks available from the village.

The Tors Inn, in Belstone, is a highly regarded pub and restaurant serving good food and drink. The village is also renowned for its ancient stocks, medieval church and riding stables, and is only 2 miles from the A30 which offers easy access into Cornwall and the rest of the West Country.

The nearby town of Okehampton is home to some interesting shops, good pubs and restaurants and an outdoor activities centre. Okehampton is also the place to find the Dartmoor Railway, a unique dining experience where you can enjoy fine dining or afternoon tea while taking in the stunning local scenery by train.

Lydford Gorge National Trust is just a 20-minute drive away, and home to a spectacular river, woodland, and the deepest gorge in the South West with a 30 metre waterfall. The cathedral city of Exeter is a 30-minute drive in the other direction, offering excellent shopping and dining, and the underground passages that make for a fascinating all-weather activity.

High Willhays, the highest point on Dartmoor, is an easy morning walk from Belstone, and the area is well-known for letterboxing - where you search the many tors and ancient dwellings for small boxes containing a stamp and a visitor’s book to record your discovery. Cranmere Pool, where the oldest known letterbox (dating back to 1854) can be found, is a 6-mile walk from the village, so pack some sandwiches and a compass and get out exploring!

A holiday cottage in Belstone provides a tranquil base from which to explore the wild beauty of Dartmoor and picturesque North Devon countryside.
