We’re thrilled to be joining The English National Park Experience Collection. So excited, in fact, that we’re giving away spaces to experience Ancient Stones & Ancestors on 5th March. Dartmoor’s Daughter newsletter subscribers get to book tickets before anyone else - we’re sharing some Dartmoor love and emailing a special access code to them on Valentine’s Day, 14th February. Bookings will then be opened to the general public on Sunday 17th February. Click here to join the mailing list.

We have ten spots to give away, and we kindly ask for just a donation to our chosen charities - Donate for Dartmoor and the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Teams.

The English National Park Experience Collection is a new initiative of over 70 new bookable experiences, each telling the stories of our finest landscapes and their people to new audiences, supported by accommodation providers across nine of England’s National Parks. 

We have launched two new bookable experiences as part of this collection: 'Ancient Stones and Ancestors’ and ‘Wild Ponies, Wild Land’ (offered in conjunction with the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust) which will offer visitors a unique insight into Dartmoor alongside other tour operators.

Though these experiences are aimed at a wider travel-trade audience, we so hugely appreciate our local (and sometimes not so local!) following, that we are offering an exclusive opportunity to join us on an Ancient Stones and Ancestors experience on Tuesday 5th March, more details on this experience below.

Further Information

The Experience

Step back in time to experience the history and mystery of Ancient Britain and its people. Dartmoor has one of the highest concentrations of prehistory relics across north west Europe. Bring your senses alive and imagine what it might have been like to live thousands of years ago as we walk majestic granite tors to enjoy stunning views; visit ruined settlements, ancient stone rows, circles and standing stones. All whilst foraging any available wild edibles along the way as our ancestors might have done.


  • Enjoy an immersive experience in the wild and beautiful landscape of Dartmoor National Park

  • Forage and feast on local seasonal wild foods

  • Learn about indigenous culture, tradition, and history from an experienced and knowledgeable guide, explore the history of stone circles.
