25/05/2024 | Spring Family Walk Easy walk

Walk overview

Join us this half term for a fantastic family Spring walk on Dartmoor! This family friendly walk will start at Hound Tor at 10am and will head down to the medieval village, via Great Tor (great for a bit of scrambling fun for kids) across Holwell Lawn through bluebell scented air before looping back to the car park. The bluebells on Dartmoor come out at different times each year so we hope to see them but if they’re been and gone, there will still be a treasure trove of flora and fauna to spot.

It will last 3 hours and is suitable for all ages. Dartmoor themed spring activity sheets will be available at no extra cost for children who would like them. It will cost £20 for a family (2 adults + 2 children) or £12.50 for one adult. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
