The Adventures of Dartmoor Dog

Our Dartmoor Dog loves to explore all the best walks on Dartmoor, and he thought it would be great to share a few of his short adventures with you

Walk One – Meldon Reservoir

Here is his first little adventure, a lovely walk from the car park at Meldon Reservoir, just a short drive from the hotel. From there, across the dam and up the hill towards Yes Tor. You could go up Yes Tor before bearing South West towards the rocky hill top at Black Tor, and the great views. Then straight down to the spectacular Black-A-Tor Copse, with the ancient moss covered oaks. A quick swim in the river (West Okement) before heading back up the valley towards the far end of Meldon Reservoir, then along the banks back to the start. About 2 hours or more, if you spend time soaking in the great views ! Dartmoor Dog loved it !

Walk Two – River Teigh to Fingle Bridge

A walk from the hotel along a section of The Dartmoor Way, from Dogmarsh Bridge, near Chagford, along the banks of the River Teign. Initially below the slopes of Hunter’s Tor, with Castle Drogo perched high above, then through the woods to Fingle Bridge. You can then return on the other side of the river. A lovely gentle walk, about 2 hours, depending on how long you stop at the pub at Fingle Bridge !

Dogs are always very welcome here at Mill End Hotel – in fact we think this is the perfect place to bring your dog to enjoy some of the splendid walks we have on our doorstep.
