Dartmoor Circular Walks

For all ages and fitness levels

There are lots of ways to explore and enjoy Devon and Dartmoor, whether on foot, by bike or on the back of a horse; but by far the most popular is by walking. We have found that circular walks are the most well-loved, so here we have a large number for you to choose from!

Take a look at the map for the circular walks you can do here. These may range from a couple of miles to 12 miles+ so please check your distance before embarking on a route. Some of these routes will be challenging and some easy, some moderate and others guided walks.

All of the routes state their level of difficulty and give an outline of the routes, so that you are fully informed before you even leave the house.

You probably already know that we have some wonderful places to eat and drink on and around Dartmoor, just perfect for re-fueling after a walk, or stopping off mid-walk for a delicious cream tea at one of the Cafes and Tearooms.
