At Wilderness Breaks we rent out gear and create adventures in our local wilderness - Dartmoor National Park and The South Hams area of outstanding natural beauty.



Our local environment: South Hams and Dartmoor

Ride north and you soon get into Dartmoor National Park, a vast landscape of tors - craggy hill tops - deep river valleys and natural rocky trails . Some of the best whitewater rivers in the UK and incredible mountain bike trails. The largest wild camp area in England. Full of atmosphere and wide open space, trails winding past neolithic tombs, bronze age stone circles and abandoned medieval villages. Go south and we are straight into the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) an area of unique rias (deep flooded river valleys), ancient woodlands, calm and sheltered rivers and turquoise esturies with idyllic sandy beaches.

These two areas are also bound toether in deep time by their linked story of changing geo - environment . There were once vast redwood forests and the rivers full of glacial melt water resembing those of the Rocky Mountains of the US today. Clear remnants of this exist still today and are protected as unique in the UK. If you know where to go, you can still emerse in hidden pockets of this environmental history and feel you are there, back in time.
