Dartmoor walks this way | Home
DARTMOOR WALKS & ELECTRIC BIKES: Explore Dartmoor National Park on foot or on a top-quality electric bike -- or both. We offer guided tours, designed to suit you, that start from a variety of locations on Dartmoor and last a full or half day.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Groups of up to 6 are now permitted to walk together, maintaining a safe distance between members of different households. It is therefore possible to offer bespoke guided walks with small groups. However, I am not currently offering e-bike tours as it's not possible to show people how to use the bikes, make adjustments to the saddle etc. whilst maintaining social distance. Group walks for locals are not resuming yet as car sharing was part of these walks and I cannot bring myself to encourage numbers of people to drive singly in their cars onto the moor. It is completely over-run with cars at the moment, worse than I have ever seen it! I will review the situation once this problem has eased.
Guided Walks: You don’t have to hike for miles over rugged ground to enjoy quiet beautiful areas that capture the magical essence of Dartmoor. We can help you find them! Based on our extensive knowledge of local footpaths and landscapes, we will design a walk that suits your energy levels and introduces you to hidden beautiful parts of the moor. View our sample walks here. If you live locally, you may want to join our regular walks that take place on Sundays and Wednesdays - more info here. If you're wondering what the point of having a guide is, this will explain what's involved in planning and leading a Dartmoor walk.
Guided Electric Bike Tours: Or, if you want to see more of the area and enjoy cycling, we can offer you a half-day or full-day e-bike tour which goes along quiet lanes and through some of Dartmoor’s loveliest scenery, with time to stop and explore away from the road. Our high-quality German electric bikes make cycling accessible and enjoyable even on Dartmoor’s steep hills. View our sample rides here. You need to be a competent and confident cyclist to take part in one of my tours.
Hike & Bike: Combine a half-day e-bike tour with a half-day walk for an unforgettable all-day experience of Dartmoor that covers many miles and takes you to magical hidden corners.
Whether it’s a gentle 4-mile walk for a family outing, a 9-mile exploration of remote Bronze Age remains, or a 20-mile cycle tour of the high moors and hidden valleys, Dartmoor Walks & Rides This Way will plan the route to meet your needs and interests, and provide a guide to accompany you.
If you’re without a car, this is the best way to explore the real Dartmoor! Transport onto the moor for walks can be provided at no extra charge from Ashburton, which is readily accessible by bus from many parts of Devon: Exeter, Plymouth, Totnes, Paignton and Newton Abbot. E-bike tours start from a variety of locations including Ashburton, Poundsgate, Haytor, Postbridge and Tavistock. Other start points can be arranged to suit.
