Locality
“Dartmoor offers breathtaking views, walks and much more. Drive along scenic roads perhaps stopping at Widecombe in the Moor for lunch. At Princetown you will find the renowned Dartmoor prison with a little known museum open to the public. Enjoy learning the history of the prison and inspect the ghoulish exhibits such as knotted sheets for escaping and weapons made by the prisoners.”
