Start of the walk
Turn left off the road and go down the track past the allotments. Here you'll be joining the route of the Two Moors Way - a 102 mile long distance path between Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor and Lynmouth on the North Coast of Exmoor.
Stunning views over the Teign Valley and the higher plateau of the northern moors await you here.
Take the worthwhile excursion to Castle Drogo, 'last castle to be built in England'.
Turn left here.
Admire the dainty suspension bridge, before turning left and following the banks of this beautiful river through gorgeous deciduous woodland and stunning springtime Bluebells (if you time it right!).
Stop for a pint if you wish, though expect a crowd. Particularly if you go when we did on Easter Monday when the Duck race is happening!
Turn left off of the road at the point of your choosing for a peaceful return back to the start.
