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.

Ducks Pool Letterbox and Fox Tor

(NOTE: this walk was moved from 2nd February)
Our Mustard Seed Walks often pop into the Fox Tor cafe in Princetown for a cuppa, and we may well do this time, but we will head into the wilds of the South Moors to find the real Tor, also visiting the Ducks Pool letterbox. This walk will take us from . . . Peat Cot past Nuns Cross Farm and Plym Ford up Gnats Hill and over some possibly tough and wet terrain.
