Easter on Dartmoor is a truly magical experience, blending the joy of the holiday season with the rugged beauty of one of England’s most iconic national parks. Mill End Hotel in Chagford lies within Dartmoor National Park, amidst the ancient landscape of sweeping moorland, dramatic granite tors, and lush valleys. During Easter, this unique setting takes on a special charm, offering visitors a wide range of activities and traditions to enjoy.

Easter falls during the spring season, a time in which Dartmoor comes to life with vibrant colours. Meadows burst into bloom with a riot of wildflowers, including primroses, bluebells, and daffodils. The moorland grasses turn a lush shade of green, creating a stunning contrast against the granite tors that dominate the landscape.

Whether you’re seeking adventure in the great outdoors or simply looking to relax in the tranquil beauty of the moors, Dartmoor offers a unique and unforgettable Easter experience.
