The 16km route around Bowerman’s nose was named 57th in the country after 8,000 walking enthusiats voted in a survey for the ITV programme ‘Britain’s Favourite Walks: Top 100’

After the largest survey of its type ever conducted, a Dartmoor walk near Bowerman’s Nose has been ranked the 57th best walk in the country.

That position is enough to make it the 6th best walk in all of the South West.

The walk takes in iconic parts of Dartmoor including Jay’s Grave, Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Bonehill Rocks and Hound Tor - the area that is believed to have inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle while he was writing ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’.
