Badges Holt is situated adjacent to the popular beauty spot of Dartmeet which sits near the centre of Dartmoor about 5 miles east of Two Bridges. It acts as a meeting point of the two major territories of the River Dart which are the East Dart and the West Dart. There is a road bridge just above the East Dart, built in 1792; another partially collapsed mediaeval clapper bridge sits to the side of it. There is plenty of history around Dartmeet which sits at the centre of an important archaeological landscape including a prehistoric field system which is amongst the finest in Europe.
Dartmoor National Park is one of the last great wildernesses in the UK with an inspirational landscape of heather clad moors and rugged tors. Dartmoor was designated as a National Park in 1951, a vast tract of largely untamed countryside of huge richness and diversity stretching across 368 square miles. It's a landscape quite unlike any other, populated by lofty granite tors, mysterious hut circles and standing stones, ancient woodlands, sturdy clapper bridges, rushing streams, Dartmoor ponies, bustling stannary towns and secluded villages. Dartmoor is totally unique and a popular place to visit and explore throughout the year offering great walking, mountain biking, canoeing, rock climbing, horse riding and fishing.
