  3. Warrens, Girts and Ouzels

    Starting and finishing at the historic Warren House Inn with its famous open fire that is said to have been burning since 1845, this route can either be walked or cycled and has a number of variations that make it more or less challenging to suit…

  4. Squelchy Bogs & Stanzas

    The recent and overdue induction of former poet laureate, Ted Hughes’, into Westminster Abbey’s Poet’s Corner, was my inspiration for a classic walk into northern Dartmoor’s brooding centre.

  6. Add Two Blondes Whooping Rock to your Itinerary

    Two Blondes Whooping Rock


    A nice easy one to start your walking year off; some lanes, some stiles and a bit of open moorland. A perfect selection of what Dartmoor has to offer without leaving you too exposed to the elements. Oh, and yes, of course there are pubs!

  9. Two Bridges to Wistman’s Wood, Bellever Tor and back

    My OS Map showed a car park at Two Bridges, located at the edge of a small disused quarry. The weather was typical Dartmoor, cloud and the 50/50 chance of rain, sunshine, drizzle, blue sky, cloud. You’ll get used to it. Bring your coat.

    Into the valley of the North Teign River to Gidleigh then to Scorhill Down and the Tolmen Stone and back to Batworthy Corner.

  15. Yes Tor and High Willhays – Dartmoor High Walks

    Large red words on the OS Map spell out a warning to hikers and tourists alike: Danger Area restricted access. I had this notion that the northern landscape of Dartmoor was a fenced off landscape, uninviting to hikers. Littered with UXBs and danger!

  16. Add Haytor Audio Walk to your Itinerary

    Haytor Audio Walk


    The Haytor Audio Walk is a 6.3 mile (10 km) walk starting from the newly built Haytor Information Centre and offers stunning views over a changing landscape, as well as a flavour of Dartmoor’s cultural heritage.

  18. Cosdon and the River Taw

    Of the many options for short circular walks from Belstone on the northern edge of the moor this has to be the loveliest in spring:
