From August 26th- Sept 3rd 2017, the Dartmoor Walking Festival will be running again, giving you the opportunity to explore Dartmoor during an intensive week of walking offerings. Last year they had walks run by different rambling groups as well as the Moorland Guides, various lengths and difficulties with or without dogs etc so do take a look. I have been sorting a couple of walks for the Festival programme which will be included as below:

Please let me know if you like the look of a walk but would prefer a different length as I can arrange further walks. All the walks will include spotting features on the moor and are adaptable to the group attending.
Remember I can add you to my newsletter list so you get the walks to your mailbox without having to look here!
The coast on a misty morning!
For your first walk with me, I will send you a pre walk questionnaire to ensure I am aware of any specific needs you may have. Please do check with your doctor before taking any excerise over and above your normal routine.
