WONDERFUL WALKING

Tavistock, situated on the western fringes of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, is a magnet for walkers, attracted by the stunning scenery, wealth of wildlife and the opportunity to really get away from it all.

You will find a selection of walks in and around Tavistock on this page. There is something for everyone and many more leaflets by Tavistock Ramblers available from the Visitor Information Centre, including Merrivale Antiquities, taking in a fine Bronze Age ceremonial site just five miles from Tavistock; Roborough Down and Buckland Monachorum, again about five miles from Tavistock and providing unrivalled views of Dartmoor; the Walkham Valley and Double Waters, just a few miles from Tavistock and offering a tunnel, a fabulous bridge and stunning Dartmoor rivers.

For those staying in Tavistock but looking for walks further afield on Dartmoor, have a look at the Visit Dartmoor website’s Walking on Dartmoor page.

It is wise to remember that the terrain can be challenging. Granite can be slippery and boggy areas can be dangerous. The weather can also change quickly and once the mists come down, it’s very easy to lose your bearings. If you aren’t an experienced walker, it’s probably better to stick to marked paths or follow a walking trail.
