  • Positive Apart from being beautiful in itself, Dartmoor is the perfect place to train and to test gear. It will chuck any conceivable weather at you, present you with rocky slopes, water crossings and wide featureless areas that need good navigation skills. Oh, and great pubs.
  • Negative Difficult to get to, unless driving: which mans usually circular walks.
