DISCOVER THE ANCIENT STANNARY TOWN OF ASHBURTON - "A TOWN FOR ALL REASONS!"

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.
