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 walk the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Customer reviews from the Two Moors Way/Devon Coast to Coast

“Exceeded my expectations. I loved it and so did my fellow walkers. On the final day Simonsbath to Lynmouth there were 39 people walking!! In the main the places you choose were very good and some were superb.”

Mr Loman, USA
“Contours arrangements worked well. Very satisfactory.”
Mr Guthrie, Australia
“Luggage transfers went smoothly, holiday pack had all the relevant information, accommodation was easy to find, and we only got rained on once.”
Mr Moore, UK
“The weather overall was good, and the distances walked each day easily achievable. It was my younger son's first experience of such a holiday and he came away saying he'd be happy to do another one.”
Ms Kendall, UK
“While Challenging - it was a fantastic way to see the country.”
Mrs Noble, USA
“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.”
Mr Carter, UK
“I am knocking on 80 and Beth 77. A suitably strenuous walk but well within our capabilities. Wonderful countryside and enjoyably isolated. Just the sort of holiday we love best. Will look forward to doing more in this area, or elsewhere with Contours.”
Mr Carter, UK
“Our trip was terrific, over all!”
Mrs Woodworth, USA
