The weather at the moment is being very uncooperative! After consulting the weather app we decided today was the best day to explore the Dartmooor National Park in the county of Devon. Perhaps the app needs a new setting to advise the visibility!
As we entered the park we were lucky to see a few of the Dartmoor ponies that roam the countryside.
Before we drove into the fog the moors looked lovely and green.
Along the way we passed these two gorgeous little bridges.
On the edge of the Dartmoor NP the exclusive golf club at Bovey Castle looked very elegant.
On the eastern side of the moors we stopped for lunch in the little village of Chagford, a historic stannary town, with buildings dating back to the 15th and 16th century. The town was quite somber as we believe a funeral in the local church was taking place.
On the way back we stopped briefly in Tavistock on the River Tavy. The busy Pannier Market was a great find.
I wish we had had more time here but once again the afternoon rains sent us homeward bound.
Love the photos! Thanks for sharing. Feel like I am watching episodes of Escape to the Country!!
I feel as though I am in ‘Escape to the Country’ as well.
Hot bowl of soup on an English summers day good idea. Great photos .
Summer may have now passed – but the weather isn’t that bad really.
