05/04/2021 | Springtime at Challacombe Easy walk

Walk overview

Sheep are lambing, birds are nesting, everywhere nature is getting going. We take a walk round Challacombe Farm in the company of the farmer and at a pace that allows us to take it all in. Challacombe is a hill farm that breeds sheep and beef cattle to high welfare standards and encourages biodiversity in its meadows, pasture and ponds. We see evidence of older farming methods in medieval strip lynchets and of livestock rearing stretching back to the Bronze Age. Group size is kept very small to comply with Covid regulations and to tailor the content of the day and the distance walked to the needs of each group. We finish by getting up close and personal with newborn lambs: be sure to bring your camera! You are welcome to stay on after 2.30; the pond is a great place to sit, for example, and there’s lots to explore including the ruins of a medieval village.
Further details available: please phone or email

10/04/2021 | Explore a rain forest! Moderate walk

Walk overview

Yes, we have rainforests on Dartmoor! Temperate rainforest is a rare habitat, rich in biodiversity. We visit one of Dartmoor’s upland oakwoods, Black-a-Tor Copse, lesser known than Wistman’s Wood, more remote and just as charming.

You will learn what makes these places so special and fragile, and consider some of the species they contain, from ferns that grow on tree branches to lichens and mosses that cover almost every surface. Each participant will receive a hand lens (new, packaged Covid-securely and yours to keep) – you’ll be amazed how much more you can see. You will learn the names of two or three species but the day is not so much about absorbing facts as appreciating this very special habitat.

The day involves walking approx. 5 miles, some of it on uneven ground, and a bit of clambering over boulders.

We will be a small group and keep our distance from each other as per government guidelines. If you develop Covid symptoms or need to self-isolate, we will offer you another date or a refund.

This course will give you the foundation skills to competently navigate and route plan on moorland. Day one covers the basic skills of map reading and using a compass, practising each technique several times. We do this in the course of a walk of about 5 miles.
