Shopping at Lydford Gorge
Stop in the shop for some guilt free retail therapy, everything you spend goes into looking after special places like Lydford Gorge for ever for everyone.
The shop is located at the Devil's Cauldron entrance and is stocked with a range of the National Trust favourites as well as products from local suppliers. Currently available are Dartmoor calendars from ASC photography based in Belstone, Richard West earrings made in Exeter, and Honest Foods Pesto from Newton Abbott. If you have worked up a bit of a thirst then you can find local beer and cider to help you quench it.
New for 2018 are some delicious jams, chutneys, biscuits and sweets which feature views of the gorge, making them a great gift or memento of your visit to Lydford. The Whortleberry jam - which is made from the wild Devon bilberry and pronounced Wer-tull-berry or Ertz in Devonian - is a proper taste of Dartmoor.
The outdoor range includes fleeces, rucksacks, boots, and things that you might need to explore the Gorge and wider Dartmoor area. Walking poles, which can be useful when traversing the uneven paths in the gorge, are also for sale. Sweets, chocolate and biscuits are a cheeky indulgence after all that effort, but worth it.
