I did this in June, 130 miles, starting at Plymouth, to Wembury and on to Lynmouth in a week. I had fairly good weather and was wild camping and backpacking. Its quite difficult to plan accommodation and there are only one or two campsites, hence...More

I walked this route in early may, and had great weather all the way. I did it in 5 days, which was quite a challenge, as I was wild camping, and carrying all my own gear. I would definitely recommend it. Some of the views...More

We did the full walk over a continuous 6 day period and enjoyed the great variety. Both moor sections are not well signposted and reasonable navigation skills are required, particularly in poor weather. We travelled in May and it was quite wet and muddy underfoot....More

We did 2 days walking from Chagford to Ivybridge with a stop at Scoriton. Tough stuff, some extreme weather but fabulous and varied landscapes. Full of interest: Devon Hedgerows, mining archeology, grand vistas, vast seaviews, river valleys. View of Dart river is the highlight. Signposting...More

Ivybridge is the starting point - Gateway to the Two Moors Way 105 miles to Linton.... Up and over Dartmoor National Park - need good map reading skills. In to mid Devon of rolling countryside before the lumps of Exmoor.

There's not much I can add to the comprehensive reviews on this site, except for the following, I believe, important information. We did this walk in late May, and were warned that there will be rain and mist possibly obscuring the path. Better advice would...More

The Two Moors way is a spectacular route. You can carefully prepare and walk the whole route over about a week depending on your fitness level. However, you can opt to do parts of it, or do circular walks. A walk I often do is...More

Make sure you come prepared: in walking condition and with your gear. Weather is 'all sorts' so that is a bit of a challenge too. Nature is gorgeous ...

High quality boots needed. Gaiters also useful to stop water getting in over the top if your foot goes into a mire.
