The Two Moors Way forms most of Devon’s coast to coast trail. It winds its way from the southern edge of Dartmoor to Lynmouth on the north coast. Our highlights holiday covers the entire path across Dartmoor and Exmoor in five manageable sections, staying in two centres with all transport included so you can enjoy the Devon countryside with just a day pack.

It will strike anyone undertaking the walk how close the gentle landscape of southwest England’s farms, woodland streams, white washed pubs and thatched roofs are to the wild moorlands of heather and tussock grass. You’ll pass through these contrasting landscapes which have inspired novels as diverse as the Hound of the Baskervilles, Tarka the Otter and Lorna Doone.

It’s also a walk through history as along the way we’ll come across signs of Bronze Age settlements, weather-beaten Celtic crosses and the outlines of abandoned houses and villages.

We start in Ivybridge with three full days on Dartmoor. Omitting the section across mid-Devon which is outside either national park, we pick up the trail again in Hawkridge where it enters Exmoor. As we approach journey’s end at Lynmouth we enjoy spectacular views as the cliffs fall sharply towards the sea.

  • Services of a dedicated tour leader
