A This most enjoyable walk takes you along the ever babbling river Teign following part of the Two Moors Way and Dartmoor Way - see hiking routes.

B Gidleigh is worth seeing for its church and private ruins of a fortified medieval manor.

C Nearest pub to Gidleigh is the Northmore Arms in Wonson south of Throwleigh ( 20 mins walk from Gidleigh church).
It has lots of character with a large open fire, even in summer! - a visit is highly recommended.
