About the trail

The Two Moors Way is a walk of stunning contrasts. From the sandy beach of Wembury Bay, it combines the wild heather uplands of Dartmoor with the steep-sided river valleys and ancient oak woodlands of Exmoor. Together, these pathways through distinct landscapes form the Devon Coast to Coast, one of England’s most beautiful country-crossing routes.

Expect desolate, granite-pocked heathland in Dartmoor, and peaceful, oak-clad hillsides in Exmoor. A wealth of scattered farmsteads and sleepy villages of cob and thatched cottages dot the countryside, culminating in the lovely little harbour at Lynmouth.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

“We enjoyed it very much, for us at 78 and 75 it was a real challenge. Crossing the national park section with compass and GPS was quite exciting. We hope to walk the Exmoor section later this year and will use you again in the future.”

“Our trip was terrific, over all!”
Mrs Woodworth, USA
