Shaugh Prior

A tiny, leafy off the track hamlet with a population of only 700 around half a mile above the Dartmoor Way route at Shaugh Bridge.

There is a good B&B option here and the White Thorn Inn for evening meals. The village and land here were originally part of the extensive estate of Plympton Priory and the villages St Edward Church is well worth a look. Grade 1 listed and dating back to the 11th Century it has a magnificent tower and plenty to see inside. Other than that, there is little to do here except rest up in a peaceful place and pay a visit to the White Thorn!

If there is no availability here walkers will continue on the Dartmoor Way to the moor at Cadover Bridge,  diverting over the moor to the village of Wotter,  where you will find the Moorland Hotel with its Brasserie restaurant right on the edge of the moor.
