The bulk of my posts are centred around family days out in the South West, you will see little boy is absent from these pictures courtesy of a playdate yet I still think the moors are fantastic places to let littles run off steam, providing you don’t lose them of course…
I spent my childhood amongst hills and sheep in tiny villages sandwiched between the Powys and Herefordshire border; it is undeniably beautiful yet I have settled in the South West. The grey sea churned up by the winder winds drew me in though I do pine for the dips and swells of the land back home…Hence our adventures up to the eastern edge of Dartmoor.
Haytor is a popular landmark; take a flask and some sandwiches. Plonk your bottom down on the short, springy grass. It is easily accessible by road. Granted some are winding, diminutive roads. Expect satnav confusion. Bus tours are popular, we tend to go early or late in the day and off season. Locally Teignmouth, Bovey Tracey, Stover and Newton Abbot are all serviced by bus so frequent and regular services operate near to the route.
