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.

Bluebells Walk

Mustard Seed Walks will once again take a walk to visit the bluebells on Holwell lawn (if they are still there!). Starting from Haytor Visitors Centre (SX765772) we will head out passing the Haytor Quarry and beyond to Smallacombe Rock to descend to a clapper bridge over Becka Brook. A steep climb . . . will take us to Greater Rocks. We will be getting very close now to the bluebells! After leaving the bluebells of Holwell lawn we will drop down to recross the brook over the new bridge. Another steep climb will take us to Holwell Tor Quarry and up and up to Haytor Rocks. Our copious climbing will be rewarded with a downhill stroll with glorious views. Dogs are welcome on a short lead please.
