A Search for Pixies Holt

Something to seek out once the restrictions are lifted. In my talks with Dartmoor walkers I’m always surprised at how few have ever been to Pixies Holt.  Many confused it with the education adventure centre on the hill out of Dartmeet, which bore the same name and in truth the legendary lair of the littleContinue reading “A Search for Pixies Holt”

Walking from Dartmoor’s Lustleigh

One of the first areas of Dartmoor I ever walked was through Lustleigh Cleave, that deep valley of the River Bovey on eastern Dartmoor. Not long before we left Devon, we walked there again.

ItContinue reading “Devon – Walking the River Webburn”

Walking the Dartmoor Borders

A shorter walk on the Dartmoor borderlands, revisiting some of the first areas I got to know some fifty years ago. I give the route below, for it is a pleasant ramble – good for an evening walk. The walk starts from the village of Manaton, once the home of the novelist and playwright John Galsworthy,Continue reading “Walking the Dartmoor Borders”
