Lustleigh is known as 'the prettiest village in Dartmoor' and for good reason. Attractive thatched cottages line the triangular village green of this picturesque village in the Wray Valley, and a tributary of the River Bovey wanders through the village.

To the west of the village is the ridge of Lustleigh Cleave, offering superb views across Dartmoor. At the north end of the Cleave is the Iron Age hillfort of Hunter's Tor.

Lustleigh is a popular stopover point for walkers on the moors. Indeed, walking is perhaps the best way to enjoy the village, which is reached by narrow country lanes. Put your feet up and enjoy a cold pint at the Cleave Public House, once a 15th-century farmhouse, or take tea at a thatched tearoom on one side of the green.

Opposite the tearoom stands the medieval parish church of St John the Baptist. A stone's throw in the other direction is the village shop and post office.
