Ashburton Certificated Locations

Nestled on the hills of Dartmoor, the Devon town of Ashburton lies between Plymouth and Exeter and has plenty to offer visitors at any time of year.


The unspoilt countryside is ideal for outdoor pursuits such as trekking on the famous ponies, hiking, fishing or canoeing when the weather is good.


However, when the notorious moody mists roll in during the winter, there's an excellent selection of tea shops, restaurants and pubs available to cosy up in and enjoy refreshment.


Antique shops, art galleries and book shops provide plenty of opportunities to browse and buy souvenirs or gifts, while historical buildings abound at every turn - look out for those dating back to the town's tin mining days.


Visit in July and you'll also be able to participate in a traditional ale tasting and bread weighing ceremony.
