Walking

It's no coincidence that at Gidleigh Park we offer a boot room for guest use, wellingtons and stout walking boots are almost compulsory attire for many of our guests.

Dartmoor is a walker’s paradise, offering a huge variety of trails that cater for all levels of walker and discovering this magical landscape on foot affords the opportunity to experience the wildlife and natural vegetation that are at home here.

A circular route of about six miles is a good initial hike; Postbridge and Bellever are both circular walks taking in a varied mix of scenery, riverside trails, moorland, woodland, waterfalls and historical remains.

Chagford is a great starting point for walkers and one of the most worthwhile walks is the four and a half miles that takes you to the top of Nattadon Hill, a steep climb, but when you reach the summit, the view below you is well worth the exertion.

On the estate itself there are several routes which we can provide self-guiding maps for or by prior arrangement we can organise a local guide. Wherever your trails take you, we are very happy to equip you with sustenance.
