Discover a Different Dartmoor

Go Beyond stays calm and relaxed in Devon

31st July – 7th August 2021

What's to get excited about!

Discover a Different Dartmoor offers a lot!

With an inspirational landscape of rugged ‘tors’ and heather clad moors, and designated a National Park in 1951, Dartmoor is without question, one of the last great wildernesses in the UK. An enormous tract of untamed, rich and diverse countryside stretching across 368 square miles. It is quite simply, unique. Unlike any other landscape in the country with its stannary towns, rushing streams, secluded villages, Dartmoor ponies, mysterious hit circles, towering granite tors, standing stones and mighty ancient woodlands just inviting us to explore. And we will. Mythical Dartmoor awaits!

Enjoying the Great Dartmoor Adventure

Where you'll be staying...

At the wonderful Adventure Lodge, located in the very heart of Dartmoor. A place where the primary aim is to ‘bring Dartmoor to life’ for each and every visitor and guest.

Your accommodation will be comfortable and clean.. perfect for a good nights rest. Just what you’ll need after each easy-going, memorable and enjoyable day as you a Discover a Different Dartmoor.

Food, glorious food!

Our regular guests will know that we put a lot of love and care into our mealtimes – whether it’s out and about or in our holiday base itself. So you will be delighted to know that the Centre offers fully equipped kitchens and excellent facilities including heated serving units, dishwashers (you’re off the hook there Neil!) and plenty of cold storage.

And even better… we will be ably fed and watered by our very own Go Beyond Chef for the duration of relaxing week in Devon. Dinner is served!

What you'll experience...

So we have a beautiful, scenic base from which to enjoy your easy going Go Beyond Discovering a Different Dartmoor holiday.

You see Dartmoor offers so much. Fascinating geology and archaeology, the historic remains of the mining industry, local folklore and legend and wildlife and flora that’s found only in this dramatic and wild wilderness.

Plenty to see and discover for sure but we’ll be experiencing another side to Dartmoor on this relax, re-energise and rejuvenate holiday week. So we will be taking things at an easy pace on foot, by road and even by rail on the multi-award winning South Devon Railway – one of Devon’s and the West Country’s best loved tourist attractions and is the longest established steam railway in the south west, celebrating over 50 years in preservation.

It’s August so we will be taking to the beautiful beaches – the quaint and the off the beaten track coves that Devon is so famous for.

And with numerous museums and places of historic interest to visit, this really will be an opportunity to enrich and take time to see the world at a slower pace. To enhance our mental wellbeing and just enjoy. And breathe.

Activities will include: Visiting the National Marine Aquarium (the UK’s largest aquarium), pony trekking on Dartmoor, visiting Lyford Gorge, a visit to Castle Drogo, a trip on the South Devon Railway from Buckfastleigh to Totnes through the beautiful Dart Valley and a day at the seaside in Dartmouth.
