the classic guide

A guide to the West Country from the people that know…


Princetown is a pretty little village that is the highest settlement on the moor - so great views all round! It has plenty of historical value, now primarily known for being the site of Dartmoor prison, and literary connections (Arthur Conan Doyle stayed in the hotel whilst writing The hound of the Baskervilles). The town brewery brews a few local ales that you will doubtless see around the West Country.
