There's not much I can add to the comprehensive reviews on this site, except for the following, I believe, important information. We did this walk in late May, and were warned that there will be rain and mist possibly obscuring the path. Better advice would...More

The Two Moors way is a spectacular route. You can carefully prepare and walk the whole route over about a week depending on your fitness level. However, you can opt to do parts of it, or do circular walks. A walk I often do is...More
