Dartmoor National Park

Devon presents no greater contrast to the country's quaint and picturesque image than the bleak, deserted expanses of Dartmoor. Southern England’s greatest natural wilderness is largely a treeless landscape of sometimes alarming emptiness though it also harbors surprises in the form of hidden lakes, abandoned quarries, and the dramatically wind-sculpted tors, or craggy peaks, that puncture the horizon in every direction. Sudden mists and above-average rainfall levels add to the simultaneously inhospitable and alluring scene.
