2023 Dartmoor Walking Festival | Thank you for helping us raise £1,125 for Devon Air Ambulance Dartmoor Walking Festival returns in 2024 | 7- 15 September

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.

Corndon Tor, Jordan and West Webburn Valley

Starting at Beltor Corner, we walk northwards to climb to the top of Corndon Down. The views from up here over wide swathes of Dartmoor are really spectacular as we walk along the ridge before dropping down to join a tiny lane that leads us to Broadaford where we follow a track to Shallowford. . . . Here we meet up with the West Webburn and follow it through the charming hamlet of Jordan and then some lovely woodland. We emerge in Ponsworthy and walk on paths back up the hill to our start point.
