“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

Dartmoor Walks This Way



DARTMOOR WALKS:  Explore Dartmoor National Park on foot at a pace that suits you.  We offer guided walks that start from a variety of locations on Dartmoor and last a full or half day.

Guided Walks: You don’t have to hike for miles over rugged ground to enjoy quiet beautiful areas that capture the magical essence of Dartmoor.  We can help you find them!  Based on our extensive knowledge of local footpaths and landscapes, we will design a walk that suits your energy levels and introduces you to hidden beautiful parts of the moor.  View our sample walks here.  If you live locally, you may want to join our regular walks that take place on Sundays and Wednesdays – more info here.  If you’re wondering what the point of having a guide is, this will explain what’s involved in planning and leading a Dartmoor walk.

Whether it’s a gentle 4-mile walk for a family outing or a 12-mile exploration of remote Bronze Age remains, Dartmoor Walks This Way will plan the route to meet your needs and interests, and provide a guide to accompany you.

If you’re without a car, this is the best way to explore the real Dartmoor!  Transport onto the moor for walks can be provided at no extra charge from Ashburton, which is readily accessible by bus from many parts of Devon: Exeter, Plymouth, Totnes, Paignton and Newton Abbot.
