On Foot Holidays has introduced a new walking tour for 2017 which explores the wild, untamed beauty of Dartmoor.
The walking holiday specialist's 'Devon, a Tale of Two Rivers' is an seven-night/eight-day self-guided trip which starts in Exeter where walkers can explore secret underground passageways before visiting the cathedral with its magnificent vaulted ceiling. The route then follows meandering rivers, passes through peaceful woodland, winds past Buckfast Abbey and Dartington Hall and then through Sharpham vineyard, for wine and cheese tasting. It also takes in Dittisham where a boatman can row guests across to Greenways, Agatha Christie’s summer home. The final leg of the journey is to the historic maritime town of Dartmouth. The itinerary is flexible and there are ways to shorten the route that include ferries down the Dart, steam trains and vintage buses if walkers decide to take it slightly easier one day.
On Foot Holidays transports all luggage as guests walk from location to location. Accommodation en route is in characterful properties, including Higher Venton Farmhouse, a 16th century thatched longhouse and working farm and Dartington Hall, the largest medieval house in the West of England and a great cultural hub, with a cinema and packed festival programme.
The new trip costs from £745 per person (based on two sharing), including B&B accommodation, two packed lunches, all route information, all luggage transfers between overnight stays and local back-up assistance if required. Travel arrangements to the start of the walk are not included.
