Calendar of Walks & Experiences
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.
Join Dartmoor's Daughter's for a stunning walk and wild swim near the stunning range of Belstone tors. We’ll walk below the tors; pause a moment at a Bronze Age cairn circle with legend of dancing maidens; wonder about the real story behind Irishman’s wall; and swim in a beautiful river pool.
This stunning walk back again for this year’s 'Something Wild Trail Running Festival' 2019 following the 10K runners route, after all the runners have left. So if you have a spouse or friend doing the race why not join this walk!
Journey back in time by walking part of the old South Zeal-Hangingstone Hill peat merchants and tinners track that skirts dangerous Raybarrow Pool, visiting the Bronze Age Whitmoor stone circle with its magnificent 360 degree views, and impressive reconstructed triple stone row known as the Graveyard or Cemetery. Climbing up Cosdon Beacon for stunning views, we end our day with a refreshing swim at the beautiful Shilley Pool.
Learn map and compass skills in a hands-on and practical workshop. Build confidence to explore new places and walk off the beaten track. We will also discover other ways to feel your way through the landscape e.g.: natural navigation.
Join Dartmoor's Daughter and Dartmoor Skies for an astronomical adventure in the heart of the moorland. With Saturn visible in the sky, and a host of other astronomical wonders to enjoy, this promises to be a memorable night.
The Orionid meteor shower is considered one of the most beautiful meteor showers of the year, they are fast meteors and bright. They are known for leaving persistent 'trains' (trails) which can last for a few seconds or maybe up to a minute. They are fragments of Halley's comet.
