The Fox Tor Cafe
The Fox Tor Café, or FTC as we’re known to some of our regulars, is situated close to the centre of Princetown which is a stone’s throw from some of the best country in Devon!
Princetown boasts a local store/post office, the Dartmoor National Park High Moorland Visitor Centre, Prison museum and the Old Smithy! The café offers free WiFi to our customers and has fantastic mobile reception for those wanting to stay connected! There is lots of history surrounding the moors including the Hound of the Baskervilles and Dartmoor Prison! We do have some books in the cafe to fill you in on the local history.
We have two wood burners for the cold winter months and Bunkhouse accommodation for those of you needing clean and cheap accommodation plus cycle hire allowing you to explore while keeping your carbon footprint clean! Princetown offers some of the most beautiful views along with some of the most gruelling sports. The Dartmoor Devil cycle race goes through and uses the café as a checkpoint, we also offer help and sustenance to those involved with the Dartmoor Ultra Marathon.
Princetown is the ideal location for anyone wishing to spend time on Dartmoor – with so many activities right on the doorstep – walking, climbing and mountain biking to name but a few.
