AboutWalk off the beaten track with Dartmoor's Daughter on a route that includes a beautiful and little-visited wild swimming spot.
Level: 3 out of 5 - There are some paths but you must be comfortable walking 4-5 miles across open moorland and crossing streams and rivers. And, if you wish to take a dip, you must be able to swim. Any children must be accompanied by an adult.
Dartmoor is a stunning natural environment and our intention will be to 'leave no trace'. Please come with a sense of appreciation and reverence so that we can collectively leave the wild swimming spot without damage to the delicate ecosystems.
What to bring: Sturdy walking boots, warm layers, sunscreen, waterproofs (no matter the weather forecast), swimsuit & towel, lunch and drinks.
Where to meet: Grassy carpark on the right hand side of the lane that leads up to Kestor and Batworthy corner (not the carpark at the end of the road over Batworthy bridge). Map Reference is SX662862. The nearest postcode for satnav is TQ13 8EN but don't rely on it to get you to the exact spot!
Car sharing is encouraged.
