Welcome to the Moors

Covering 368 square miles, Dartmoor is a place of beauty, mystery and diverse ecology. As well as still being home to thousands of people, it also contains ancient remains of settlements reaching back to prehistoric times. With a national park as large as Dartmoor with so much to learn and enjoy, you may prefer, as many visitors do, to walk the moors in the company of a knowledgeable guide who can explain the moorland in as much detail as you want. Our expert guides run a vast range of activities all across the moors and beyond. Join us and find out why the only way to really discover the real Dartmoor is to join the Moorland Guides on one of our walks.

Abbots Way Walk

This is the annual Abbots Way walk from Buckfast Abbey to Tavistock, a challenging day’s walk. IMPORTANT – please do not sign up for this walk unless you can manage walking 23 miles at a reasonable pace with few rests. There are time related cut off points, so we need to keep moving. ALSO . . . IMPORTANT – all walkers will need to arrange for a lift to Buckfast Abbey and a pick up from Tavistock College (please note, I cannot arrange this for you). We need to divide into teams of 3 minimum and 8 maximum, but can still all walk together so I can navigate for everyone.
VERY IMPORTANT – the entry fee of £10 needs to be sent to me by 13th September so that I can submit the entry forms and fees by the cut-off date on 20th September. When you apply to me I will give you bank transfer details.
