The Dartmoor Artisan Trail is an arts, craft and food trail that champions Dartmoor's unique artisan culture to a global audience. 

Our aim is to inspire the public to visit and support the moor's producers and artists and help ensure the survival of traditional skills and trades in the national park.

The first of its kind in the UK, the project has been widely acclaimed in the media. On Sunday, August 16th, it was featured on BBC Countryfile which, with nine million viewers, is the UK's most watched television programme. It has been featured in The Guardian, Lonely Planet and The Daily Telegraph, who named it one of the UK's best travel experiences of 2017, and it's soon to be on BBC Spotlight and BBC Radio Devon. It is also being included in several guidebooks to the region, including Bradt's Slow Travel Guide to Devon

As a result, the trail is now a huge pull, with visitors coming to Dartmoor from across the UK and Europe to try it out.  

Photographs of the artisans, taken by trail founder Suzy Bennett, are being exhibited at the Dartmoor Museum of Life in Okehampton from September 2017 to April 2018. 

We are looking for sponsors who would like to be associated with this inspiring community project. In return, we can offer fantastic exposure via the trail in local, national and international press, at the project's photography exhibition and across Dartmoor and South Devon's tourist offices. 

Packages start from as little as £500. For more information, please contact Suzy on 07786 264865 or
