Cicerone - Walking The Two Moors Way
Guidebook to Devon's Coast to Coast route. The route is a combination of the well-established Two Moors Way with the Erme-Plym Trail. The route is described south to north, from Wembury on the south coast, up through Dartmoor and mid-Devon, through Exmoor to Lynmouth overlooking the Bristol Channel. The 116 mile route typically takes a week to walk, but suggestions are included for alternative more leisurely schedules.
While thousands of visitors flock to Devon every year, few leave the honeypots and coast, so walkers on the Two Moors Way are treated to beautiful and remote countryside, far from the crowds. The 116 mile route winds north from the coast, up past Ivybridge into the wilds of Dartmoor, where the path crosses the upper course of the River Dart, and passes through Dunstone Down and Chagford. The way through mid-Devon visits Witheridge and Knowstone before climbing onto Exmoor and into Somerset, before reaching the sea.
This guidebook combines clear route descriptions and OS map extracts with plentiful practical details on each stage of the route as well as advice on accommodation, facilities, and how to travel to and from the Way. Also included is a wealth of detail on the history, geology and wildlife along the way, as well as noting points of interest to enhance your walk.
May for bluebells and wild garlic in the hedgebanks; August for purple heather and bright yellow gorse on the moors; late October for glorious reds and oranges in valley woodlands and Exmoor's famous beech hedgebanks
Wembury, Yealmpton, Ivybridge, Holne, Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Chagford, Drewsteignton, Morchard Road, Morchard Bishop, Black Dog, Witheridge, Knowstone, Hawkridge, Withypool, Simonsbath, Lynmouth
A moderate undulating walking route, made tougher by dividing it into fewer sections to give longer days; conditions underfoot may be muddy after wet weather, and a detour required on the Hawkridge-Withypool section in times of flood; waymarking is good other than on the moorland sections; when the cloud is down the use of map and compass is essential on the unavoidable Ivybridge-Holne section
