| Events in Dartmeet | 10 Places to Stay

The popular hamlet of Dartmeet in Devon is, as its name indicates, the spot where the West and East Dart rivers meet. An ancient clapper bridge spans the East Dart with a modern functional bridge standing alongside it. Travel upstream from the bridges to the Badger’s Holt tea rooms, where Devon cream teas are served to a 50 year old secret recipe. Up the hill from the bridges leads to a little wooden cabin called Pixieland, here is Dartmoor’s most famous gift shop and legend has it, the home of the “Dartmoor Pixie”. Nearby is Pixies Wood and Huccaby Cleave below the bridges is where the “Piskies” hide in a small tunnel-like cave! Dartmeet provides easy access to the Dart Valley Nature Reserve and is a perfect location to explore from. At the side of the road up the steep Dartmeet Hill, can be seen the Coffin Stone. Local folklore has it that it was once a Dartmoor tradition that funeral processions travelling up the hill would pause here and rest the coffin for a while on the stone. A tot of whisky would regenerate the men before they would continue on the journey to the deceased’s final resting place.
