Wake up the walking boots from their Winter Hibernation with a thrilling walk around atmospheric Dartmoor.  

Starting at Haytor, this circular route will take in old granite quarries, ancient abandoned medieval villages and a pack of hounds and their master turned to stone.

After starting at Haytor, we'll cross the open moor and then cross Becka Brook and up to HoundTor deserted Medieval Village.

After the village, we head up to Hound Tor itself.  After seeing the Hounds, we'll head north to catch up with their master at Bowerman's Nose before dropping down into Manaton where, if desired, we can relax at Kestor Inn.

After Manaton, it's back up towards Haytor via the pretty Becky Falls and then home.
