We’ll help you get to the start of your walk or pick you up afterwards, provide packed lunches and cook a delicious meal for you afterwards. Walking here is possible all through the year and we can tailor a holiday package just for you.

With over 1000km of footpaths and bridleways, through woodlands, by tumbling rivers and on open heather covered moorland, the variety is infinite. We are a day’s walk out of Lynton on The Two Moors Way.

The Two Moors Way (also known as the Devon Coast to Coast) is a long-distance walking route between Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park and Lynmouth on the North Coast of Exmoor National Park , comprehensively way-marked except on the open moorland sections. It has a total length of 102 miles (163 km), making it an ideal week’s walk.

You can download an information leaflet here (pdf) or visit the Two Moors Way website.

Exmoor offers some long distance routes including the Coleridge Way. Walk 51 miles in the footsteps of the Romantic Poets  through the stunning Somerset and Devon countryside of the Quantock Hills, the Brendon Hills and Exmoor, a landscape that inspired Coleridge to produce some of his best known work. Or ride 34 miles from Nether Stowey to Exford.
