Dartmoor’s Ancient Woodland Wild Camp

A two day hike and camp on some of Dartmoor’s ancient woodland.


This very special place always leaves a deep impression within the visitor. Staying a night or two on top the moors is the perfect way to experience the landscape in its many forms. I lay in my tent in a hidden valley with the sound of a small bubbling stream beside and light rain hitting the fly, as I drifted slowly off. This trip would focus on visiting some of Dartmoor’s Ancient Woodland.

The Akto pitched high on the moors in a moody fog.

My tent is the Hilleberg Akto. It’s by no means the lightest tent on the market but it’s dependable and solid. A breeze to set up and spacious inside.
