Moretonhampstead is an ancient market town located on the north eastern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is a town of character and dates back over 1000 years to Saxon times, Moreton (as the locals call it) is known as The Gateway to the Moor, and it is the ideal base from which to explore some of Britain’s most spectacular countryside. No part of the National Park is more than an hour’s drive away from the town and most of the well-known beauty spots are close by. Moretonhampstead is almost exactly in the centre of Devon, making it the perfect place from which to visit the north and the south coasts.
Moretonhampstead boasts a good selection of hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs and self-catering accommodation and the range of shops in the bustling main street provides for every need. Whilst Moretonhampstead has its roots in agriculture and an ancient woollen trade, it is now a thriving modern community, with activities, arts and sports for all ages. There is always something going on, but two major events not to be missed this summer are Moreton Music Day in July and Moreton Carnival in August. Also the award winning, new Green Hill Arts Gallery has already attracted thousands of visitors. The town is renowned for its friendliness, so if you can’t find something, just ask!
