The Dartmoor Real Ale Trail – on the trail of a good pint!
Dartmoor Accommodation is excited to launch its ‘Dartmoor Real Ale Trail’ featuring over 35 pubs on and around the moor. The brainchild of owners, Lisa Jenkins and Julian Tarrant-Boyce, the Dartmoor Real Ale Trail lists the pubs, their ales and amenities and also features a fun and informative map of the area.
“You could say Julian and I have done ‘extensive’ research into the local hostelries in the area! But seriously, we know from people using our website that there is a thirst for information about good beer pubs in the area. Often tucked away off the beaten track, these can be hard to find so we felt a map, or Ale Trail, would be great way of solving this problem.”
The Dartmoor Real Ale Trail
Not only is Dartmoor stunning to look at, walk across and ride through... it is also blessed with a great many excellent pubs and inns serving real ale! From the dramatic high tors in the north, to the softer more rolling landscape in the south, this Real Ale Trail will help you seek out the delights of traditional real ales and good hostelries in this beautiful area.
What’s on it…
Over 35 pubs and inns listing how many real ales they keep, plus contact details and a comprehensive list of facilities available including:
Ale accreditations, Food serving times, Accessibility, Free wi-fi, Dog friendliness and more.
How to use the trail...
A self-guided trail, the Dartmoor Real Ale Trail is intended to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace and definitely not all in one day! While sat navs are helpful they are not infallible, so a decent road map would be useful in this (very) rural area where lanes are narrow, and hills steep. Please observe the speed limit on Dartmoor and look out for livestock on the roads.
It is always advisable to check with venues about opening times – sometimes hotels may be closed for private functions. Pub details may change without notice so it is advisable to check details before heading out on the trail.
And finally – don’t drink and drive!
