"Good Old Moreton" Moretonhampstead by johngayton

The Gateway To The Moor..........

..........and to escape back to Exeter!!

I must admit to having a liking for Moreton, well at least the pubs anyway, all of which are moor than friendly: all with good beer, decent food, not overpriced and there are regular buses both in and out - i.e, several a day (as opposed to one a week from Widecombe!).

This really is a nice little town, though perhaps not a destination in its own right - a place to stop by, ideal for lunch and maybe even for an overnight stay before heading into the Moor proper.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good Selection Of Pubs
  • Cons:None Really
  • In a nutshell:More of a transit stop than a destination.

    Right on! My wife and I were very thankful to find a great little pub for lunch there after striking out in Dartmoor NP over the busy Christmas holidays as we headed for Exeter.

    Albeit only virtually, so nice to see if you've visited Ottawa - look forward to meeting you in person in the not so distant future - Marina!
