AboutWalk with Dartmoor's Daughter to a beautiful river wild swimming spot. The views are stunning. And along the way we will learn about the history of Dartmoor, the legend of the 'Witches Pool'; and map out the main river routes moor to sea. D365 square includes G4. The river pool is pretty and not very deep so best for 5-10 years old. Children must be good swimmers or have arm bands and be accompanied by parent/guardian. Bring a picnic lunch and drinks. Dartmoor is a stunning natural environment and our intention will be to 'leave no trace' please.
