Lydford Travel guide
Lydford : Michelin's recommendations
This village is located in the northwest of the Dartmoor National Park, stretching from the main road to the Lyd. This river has cut a gorge that is about 2km long, and has rocky sheer drops of 18m in places. Lydford Castle bears witness to the town's military importance. It was a Saxon outpost from the 7C onwards.
