New moorland walk for Sherlock fans

30th September 2013 Print

For fans of Sherlock, due back on television screen this Autumn, this new two Moors way walking trip from Macs Adventure is the ideal way to explore the landscape of Dartmoor, inspiration for Hound of the Baskervilles, and neighbouring Exmoor first hand.

Walking between nine and 16 miles each day, this self-guided walking trip covers 103 miles over 11 days and is graded moderate, so ideal for experienced walkers or anyone who is reasonably fit who fancies a challenge.

Starting in Ivybridge, southern Dartmoor, and ending in the Devon village of Lynmouth on the edge of Exmoor, the trail winds across heather-covered landscapes, ancient footpaths and woodland.  Walkers will pass Hound Tor, made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary sleuth as the inspiration for the Baskerville beast.

This 11-day, 10-night self-guided walking tour is available to book until 30 October and starts from £695 per person, which includes accommodation on a bed & breakfast basis in handpicked country inns and guest houses, luggage transfer from door to door, guide book with a detailed map and pre-departure information pack as well as emergency support.
