Deep Into Dartmoor With Nick Baker

From: £Contact us

Among the wildest of England’s national parks, Dartmoor is a haven for rare wildlife and is steeped in ancient history. Dartmoor resident Nick Baker leads this foray into its wild secrets.

After our first afternoon spent in the lovely Teign Gorge, we devote a full day to the magnificent River Dart, searching for rare butterflies and other insects in ancient acid grassland, before entering its oak-clad granite valley where dippers, otters and goosanders haunt the tannin-stained water. The following day we visit Dartmoor's iconic moorland, in search of ring ouzel, stonechat, cuckoo, rare fritillaries and signs of ancient human habitation in this dramatically beautiful landscape.
