Walk & wild swim.jpg

Join Dartmoor’s Daughter for a short stroll to a beautiful river swimming spot. You can swim, picnic on the banks of the river, play human ‘Pooh Sticks’, and enjoy the beautiful views. Children must be good swimmers or have arm bands and be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Dartmoor is a stunning natural environment and our intention will be to 'leave no trace' please.


FEE & BOOKING: £4 per adult/child. Payment to Group size is limited to 20 to ensure enjoyment for all, so pre-booking is essential. A donation from all walks will be given to Donate for Dartmoor and the Dartmoor Search and Rescue Teams.
