Bala Brook is situated in Dartmoor National Park and on the edge of the open moor. There are thirty five acres of delightful gardens, fields, mature oak trees and woodland adjoining the waterfalls of Bala Brook, which tumbles down to join the river Avon. We have a resident flock of Hebridean sheep.

Walking on the Moor.Dartmoor A gate from the meadow leads out onto the wide open Moor. From the front it’s a short walk up the lane to Shipley Bridge and pedestrian track leading up to the Avon reservoir and higher open Moor. An exhilarating walk Northwards brings strong hikers to Princetown in the centre of Dartmoor. Another walk westwards leads to the famous ancient oaks at Piles Wood alongside the exquisite river Erme. There are other, gentler walks around, some through woodland.
