“To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure
is the most perfect refreshment.”

(Jane Austen)

Deep in a wooded coombe on southern Dartmoor, are the graceful twin cascades of Venford Falls - the dappled anthropomorphic rocks between the falls seem like the face of ‘the Wild Man of the Woods’ from ancient folklore.

The Venford Brook runs from here down a steep hanging-valley into the River Dart.
