Last week was Derbyshire’s half term holiday for us teachers around here, so we journeyed down for our first ever proper trip to Dartmoor.
We had a great trip and really only scratched the surface of all the wonderful walking that’s obviously available in the area.
I had planned on having a night out wild camping whilst down there, but in the end the weather just wasn’t inspiring enough somehow, especially with a cozy campervan to sleep in instead.
We had some super day walks though, and I just couldn’t do a post about Dartmoor without mentioning the Fox Tor Café, in Princetown. With three separate visits for amazing cakes and scones, and another visit for a magnificent breakfast, we practically moved in!
All in all an excellent trip – despite the weather – only marred by the fact that we had to take Dixie to the vet on two occasions to have her poor swollen ear drained. Luckily it never interfered with her natural exuberance for walks and adventures though; she wasn’t going to let a little thing like that hold her back.
And a good time was had by all.
