A colourful, quirky and vibrant historic town nestling in beautiful surroundings on the edge of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, Ashburton is not only the Southern Gateway to Dartmoor, with a choice of local hotels, B&Bs, self-catering accommodation and campsites, it's also the ideal base from which to explore the whole region - from moor to sea.
An eclectic mix of independent shops cater for all tastes and occasions. Busy restaurants, pubs, cafés and tea rooms buzz with conversation whilst tantalising aromas beckon you in from the street - just step inside for a taste of the best the South West has to offer!
The centre of town is known as ‘The Bull Ring’. Fences used to be placed along the pavement and cattle would be gathered in the centre for sale.
