Backpackers eco hostel on Dartmoor

Sparrowhawk is a small, friendly eco-hostel in the centre of Moretonhampstead, popular with cyclists, hikers, climbers, bikers, artists, photographers and film makers, located within the breathtaking Dartmoor National Park. Moretonhampstead, 14 miles west of Exeter, can be reached by direct bus. Accommodation is in a beautifully converted stone stable, with solar-heated showers and a secure bike shed. High open moorland is close by for great hiking, cycling and off-road mountain biking, while the rocky tors rising up on the hilltops offer climbers a challenge. Wild swims in the rivers amongst woodlands or out on the moor are a must for the adventurous traveller. Magnificent stone circles, dwellings and burial sites of ancient civilizations together with wild ponies, buzzards, flora and fauna are all here to be explored. Moretonhampstead has shops, cafés, art gallery/studios and pubs serving good food/ beer. CTC/ Cicerone LeJoG/ Dartmoor Way cycle routes are on the doorstep.

This accommodation is featured on our map of Devon, Cornwall and the West Country and here is its own website.
