Two Moors Way

Two Moors Way | Exmoor in North Devon | Highcliffe House B&B in Lynton
Walk across the magnificent moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor on the Two Moors Way – a Coast to Coast path suitable for all levels of walkers.

The Two Moors Way

This is a long-distance, coast-to-coast path. It spans between Ivybridge in South Devon to Lynton & Lynmouth on the North Devon coast. The trail crosses parts of Dartmoor and the Exmoor National Park, briefly touching Somerset.

The length of the walk is approximately 103 miles (166 km) from end-to-end. The walk was opened in 1976 on 29 May, which is commemorated on 4 inscribed stones located along the way.

The most widely used route, from south to north is Hexworthy, Postbridge, Chagford, Hittisleigh, Morchard Bishop, Witheridge, Hawkridge, Knowstone, Withypool and Simonsbath, on to Lynton & Lynmouth.

It’s best to allow for about 10-15 miles per day for the total walk.  The trails are relatively well-marked and maintained, but the journey is slow-going over the moors.  It should be noted that some sections of the trails are rather difficult in bad weather conditions.

There are many things to do, places to see and settlements to explore along the route.

When your coast to coast walk comes to an end, in the picturesque towns of Lynton & Lynmouth.  Choose to rest your weary bones in one of Highcliffe House’s gorgeous bedrooms, each with a stunning sea view.
