Why visit Ashburton?

Ashburton is a small town on the south-east border of Dartmoor National Park. It is an ideal base for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities; events on offer include horse riding, climbing, canoeing, walking and cycling. 

The town was one of the original stannary towns, where mined tin would be brought to be weighed and assayed. You can learn all about the history at the Ashburton Museum.

Ashburton has a number of interesting shops, and is somewhat of a haven for antique collectors. There are no fewer than ten antique shops to explore and some people even travel from abroad to find unusual and fascinating items. As well as antiques, there are also a number of galleries, book shops and excellent pubs and restaurants to eat and drink in.
