The Two Moors Way links remote Exmoor and iconic Dartmoor. As not all the route is signed, walking on the moors does require an element of compass and map reading skills but the seclusion and quietude experienced will be just reward.

This Two Moors Way itinerary, is perfect for walkers wishing for a ‘getaway from it all’ journey through a remote, challenging and stunning part of ‘old’ England.


Dartmoor and Exmoor are also a bird watchers delight with many non native birds taking refuge here on their long journeys to either warmer or colder climes.
All of our itineraries include accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis, luggage transfers, a holiday pack, maps, guidebooks, and phone line support.

Called the last great wilderness in England, Dartmoor and Exmoor are places to escape all the hustle and bustle of modern life. With its epic landscape of high tors, resplendent carpets of heather and gorseland in bloom, the buzzard soaring high above you, you may be forgiven for thinking you have been transported back to a bygone time of no cars, no Wi-Fi and very few other people around you.

Whilst walking this stunning area, you have the choices of taking in the geological sights of the lofty Tors, weathered and aged by the constant battering of the elements, and the rushing and babbling lowland rivers and streams carved through the land by both time, and man, in their pursuit for the riches within. This the place where Nature has been allowed to continue weaving its own existence, with little help from us humans. Interesting flora and fauna abound, the peat bogs with their rich and diverse flowers, the drier uplands with its heather and bracken spread before you.

Of course no trip across the moors would be complete without a mention of the ponies roaming free. If you wish to explore our much lesser impact on this ancient land there are the ancient stone circles, the menhirs (standing stones) and barrows (burial mounds), the remnants of our ancestors living out on this wild and barren land, through from the Bronze Age to medieval tin streamers and farmholders to the use of the land as you see it today.
