Places to visit

Huccaby Farm

This lovely campsite is situated just down the road from The Forest Inn so extremely handy to just pop in for a refreshing drink or a bite to eat. 

Huccaby Farm is like a well kept secret, that deserves to be shared! Hidden among the old stone dwellings and granite tops of Dartmoor, just south of the Dartmeet to Two Bridge Road, it nestles in a valley, shaped by the Western Dart’s easterly path.

St. Raphael’s Chapel

St. Raphael’s Chapel situated in the beautiful hamlet of Huccaby on Dartmoor, is a place of peace and tranquility. Built in 1868 as a combined chapel and schoolroom, it has the distinction of being the only Anglican chapel in the country to be dedicated to the Archangel St. Raphael.

His name means ‘God’s Healing’ or ‘God has healed’ and he was one of the archangels who stood before the throne. He is also known as the patron saint of travellers.
