Footpaths are marked to give a variety of walking options including the 'Two Moor way' a 100 mile route that links the National Parks. Dartmoor to the south is rich in natural and man made beauty, heather clad hills, granite tors, fast flowing rivers and ancient clapper bridges. Exmoor to the north is justifiably famous for its heather moorlands and beautiful rugged coastline.
