Enjoy a self-guided Two Moors Way walking holiday in Devon on Dartmoor and Exmoor on the 102-mile long-distance hiking tour on the Two Moors Way from Ivybridge to Lynmouth in Devon, England.

This UK Two Moors Way walking holiday starts in Ivybridge in Devon on the southern edge of Dartmoor. The hiking trail crosses some of the remotest parts of Dartmoor before you walk across the unspoilt rural countryside between Dartmoor National Park and Exmoor National Park. Then the walking route crosses Exmoor to finish in Lynmouth on the north coast of Devon.

You can connect with the South West Coast Path at either end of the route, with the Dartmoor Way on Dartmoor, or with the Tarka Trail, the Macmillan Way West or the Exe  Valley Way on Exmoor.
