EAST DARTMOOR | DEVON
OVERALL WILD GRADE
Step over the crumbling ancient drystone wall and enter the Amphitheatre. Soaring trees surround you & leave you a bit dizzy but you soon adjust & realise just how intimate & unique this space is. The ground is uneven, with debris & strewn granite rocks but there spaces to pitch a small tent or string a hammock & once camp is ready, you can switch off.
On warm days, the sun casts dancing shadows on the ground & you can head off around the woodland to explore, forage & observe nature. You are a walk away from Buckland Beacon, Rippon Tor & it's only a little further down into the Dart Valley for a wild swim & adventure!
Why we love it?
Easily accessible but immediately wild. We visited on a warm summers day & it really did blow us away.
There are extensive views across Dartmoor from the woodland edge, across pasture meadows. No doubt Dartmoor's famous Wild Ponies will be curious & there is a lot to explore in the immediate area.

Close to both parking & access, the Amphitheatre still offers a wild space to escape too. No running water within walking distance, so make sure you bring your own.
Be aware of roaming livestock & wildlife and also of fallen or falling branches when in the woodland area. Intermittent phone signal is available. Ground conditions are generally dry & semi-level, although there will be deadwood, strewn rocks & bare earth.
