Buckland in the Moor, Dartmoor
This is one of Devon's "dream villages" nestling on the edge of the Moor with a medieval church made up of stone quarried on the Moor, and a cluster of thatched cottages overlooking the woodland of Holne Chase - a very popular tourist attraction. There is a rocky pinnacle above the village, and there are the 10 Commandments written on stone tablets in the Buckland Beacon. For long walks in the woodland, take the Ashburton Road. A must see around the area is Dartmeet - a well known Dartmoor beauty spot popular with tourists. There is also accommodation available for those wishing a longer stay.
