Practical details

The walks have been designed to include coach parking facilities. Guided walks are conducted in English although we might be able to find basic French and German speaking guides sometimes.

1 Guide Up to 25 in a group £70/Up to 3 hours £120/Up to 6 hours
2 Guides Up to 50 in a group £120/Up to 3 hours £220/Up to 6 hours
3 Guides Up to 75 in a group £170/Up to 3 hours £320/Up to 6 hours

5 Guides Up to 125 in a group £270/Up to 3 hours £520/Up to 6 hours

Individual groups are limited to 25 maximum in ground nesting bird season (1 March – 31 July), groups that are too large can be divided into separate parties.

The price is for the walk and so your teachers/ leaders are included in these total numbers. They must accompany the walk and will be responsible for the group’s behaviour and discipline. The group leader remains ‘in loco parentis’ throughout the walk. The guide hire fee must be paid before the walk takes place. We regret that no walks can be undertaken without being paid for in advance because of previous payments taking months to settle after the walk.

Additional Information

Parental Consent
Parental consent is an essential pre-requisite for any outdoor learning experience. A pre-condition of our service is that all schools/ organisations have obtained consent for all participants signed by their parent(s)/ guardian(s).

There is a cancellation charge of £20 once the walk has been booked but if you cancel with less than 5 working days notice the whole fee will be forfeited. cancellations must be made in writing to ensure a refund. Period of Service The service runs throughout the year subject to guide availability. Availability of guides cannot always be guaranteed. Groups should arrive 15 minutes before the start time of the walk. Failure to do so may result in the route being shortened or modified to keep within the period of hire.

Size of Group
Each group will be accompanied by one qualified Moorland guide for every 25 children. In addition, the group must include one adult leader for every 12 children. Where more than one guide has been hired, it will be the responsibility of the hirer to ensure that groups are split into appropriate sizes and/or abilities prior to the start of the walk (on the advice of guides).

Clothing and Equipment
The ground is normally rough, wet and the vegetation prickly. The weather is more extreme than in other parts of Devon and can deteriorate rapidly and unexpectedly. Boots or wellingtons are strongly recommended as even sensible shoes are likely to get wet through. Children will need to take at least three layers of clothing, the top one of which should be waterproof. The teacher/group leader must ensure that every member of the group is properly equipped before arrival on Dartmoor. A spare set of dry clothing for each pupil will make the journey back to your accommodation much more comfortable.

Payment for walks

Please note that all walks much be paid for in advance of the event because of previous issues with late payments. No walk or event will take place unless advance payment has been received.
