Dartmoor -

Of course no visit to Dartmoor would be complete for us without a visit to Widecombe and Bonehill. The kids have been climbing the rocks at Bonehill since they could walk. It can sometimes take a while, so it's handy to have.a PACMAT while we wait. The view from here is fantastic, over Widecombe, unless there's Dartmoor mist, which there often is. After the kids finished climbing and messing about on the rocks we popped into Widecombe for a cup of tea at Cafe on the Green (where you can also buy a Dartmoor PACMAT) and then a quick visit to...

Here are some snippets from their PACMAT Patch review. Read the whole review here. "A clever fusion of a soft picnic blanket top layer with a waterproof tarp under layer." "I can imagine all sorts of outdoor moments (including ones with dogs, babies and maybe small hedgehogs) for which a PACMAT might come in useful and think they would make a great Christmas present for the outdoorsy person in your life."
