  • Widecombe in the Moor, Dartmoor

The village that everyone knows through the popular song (Tom Pearce and his Grey Mare). Widecombe is a big draw for visitors the world over with the church tower being visible from many vantage points around the eastern moorlands of Dartmoor.

There is a church, pubs, and shops within the village making it a must visit location as part of a visit to Dartmoor.  Perhaps enjoying a cream tea whilst you are there.

Things to do

Usually held on the fourth Saturday of the month Widecombe's produce market takes place in the beautiful and historic Church House.  Local goods from the surrounding moors are available for you to purchase.

Something a little different

Visit the Widecombe Fair which is held annually on the second Tuesday in September. Its routes are as a market for local farmers to sell their surplus stock but it has now become the perfect showcase for all that is wonderful about this part of the country.
