Event description

Description

Join us to discover the hidden gems of Dartmoor. You will walk ancient tracks; be regaled with stories by local people of local people and history; and be driven between destinations in a luxury or vintage Landrover.

Tich Scott is a 14th generation Dartmoor farmer who runs 'Proper Dartmoor Tours'. He is an award-winning local dialect speaker, has been on BBC Spotlight several times, and knows everyone there is to know as one of Devon’s best loved comedians, story-tellers, and folk singers!

Emma Cunis established Dartmoor's Daughter to share her love of the moor through nature-connection walks and activities for enhanced health, wellbeing and performance. Her maternal family has loved and lived on/near Dartmoor for generations. Her grandmother Val introduced her first husband Eric Hemery to Dartmoor in the 1950s where he set up and offered guided walks and pony treks then wrote a series of well regarded books including ‘High Dartmoor’ described as 'the bible for anyone who has the spirit of Dartmoor’.

Level: 2 out of 5. We will walk for 4-6 miles with stops along the way and driving in-between each walk in a vintage or luxury Landrover. The routes have been carefully chosen to take in local hamlets, open moorland, local farms, stories, history and wildlife.
(We will follow paths and lanes where possible but the terrain can be rough, muddy, or boggy in places so this day is not suitable for people with walking difficulties)

Fee: £30 per adult - plus lunch (TBD - this will either be a bring your own packed lunch. Or we are hoping to have a hot stew served up in a pub or local farmhouse kitchen for a reasonable price.)
Group size is limited, so pre-booking essential.
Children and dogs by arrangement.

What to wear/bring: Sturdy walking boots/wellies, plenty of warm layers, hat, gloves, waterproof jacket and trousers (even if the forecast is fine!), walking poles if you need them, snacks, drink/hot flask.
