Set in the heart of Devon, Dartmoor National Park is an iconic place full of nature, adventure and scenic beauty.
By day, it is a diverse landscape of pretty heather, eerie marshland (which has inspired novels such as The Hound of the Baskervilles), granite tors and fast-flowing rivers; and by night the park boasts some of the darkest skies in Britain, making it a favourite spot for star-gazers.
Cottages with private pools in Dartmoor allow you to create your own quiet little haven within the park, away from the walking tours and working farms. Spend your evenings at the poolside, looking up at the skies and for a split second you can imagine that you are the only person in the universe.
But if all that seclusion becomes too much for you, there are plenty of local activities to keep you interested. Cottages with pools near Princetown, Postbridge and Haytor can take advantage of the park’s award-winning visitor centres, where you will find information on guided walks, nature trails, pony trekking and action-packed activities such as gorge scrambling or even white water rafting - when you are staying at a cottage with a swimming pool you will find that you’re a lot less worried about falling into the water!
In the summer time, look out for the tiny Dartmoor ponies grazing in meadows, and in the winter months, stay cosy with a cross-county trip on the South Devon Railway – a vintage steam train which traverses the south-west.
Holiday cottages with pools allow you to completely relax and explore the area at your own pace, no matter where your interests lie. Regardless of the weather, Dartmoor is full of fun, tranquillity and natural beauty and you will find something new to love about the area with every visit.
