The Barton Bed and Breakfast B&B - Dartmoor

The Barton is situated in the delightful doomsday village of Belstone , which lies in the northern tip of the Dartmoor National Park . Belstone is ideally located to enjoy breathtaking Dartmoor (you can walk onto the moor from the front door) and the other attractions that the West Country has to offer.

The Barton is a traditional Devon “cross passage house” and we look forward to offering you a welcoming, relaxed family atmosphere. The house lies in the centre of the village yet has secluded feel.

 

Dating back to around 1670 the property has been sympathetically renovated to a high standard. It also has a significant ley line passing through the garden – of great interest to ley line enthusiasts!

On arrival you will be treated to a traditional home baked Devon cream tea, which can be enjoyed in the lovely cottage garden or in our cosy dining room. Click here for more details

Dartmoor
Covering an area of 368 sq miles this is the largest and wildest area of open country in the southern England. By virtue of its outstanding natural beauty it is one of the National Parks of England and Wales.

A large part of this moor is made up of granite, an igneous rock which was intruded some 295 million years ago. Once known as Dartmoor forest, for it was covered by English Oak woodland it was reserved as a royal hunting ground. With thousands of years of farming, house and shipbuilding the woodland is now much depleted, but a few small areas still have ancient woodland cover.

The landscape is of great archaeological importance, with over 10,000 entries on the County Sites and Monuments Register. There are over 1,000 Scheduled Ancient Monuments and this figure rises each year. Prehistoric evidence is everywhere to be seen from standing stones, stone rows, barrows and kistvaens. Later farming, quarrying and tin mining dramatically changed the landscape, over printing an archaeological heritage to the area. There are also over 2,500 buildings which are Listed because of their architectural or historic interest.
