Explore the Moors

This is a romantic, rugged landscape, ranging from rolling valleys and wetlands to wide open landscapes, dense forests and tumbling waterfalls. However you choose to explore it you cannot fail to be in awe of its beauty.

Gidleigh Park is perfectly located to take the popular local route following the Mariner’s Way, between Kestor and Gidleigh. According to legend, seafarers used to land on the south coast of Devon and walk this route to the ports on the north coast.

Alternatively there are beautiful routes through our own grounds and a number of guided walks are run locally, to allow you to discover more of the geology, archaeology, nature and history of Dartmoor.
