Two Moors Way Guidebooks
There are at least two requirements of a guidebook. One is the functionality of navigating the route; the other is to make the walk more enjoyable and give information on Two Moors Way accommodation, geology, local history, natural history, etc. We advise buying two different guidebooks; one will complement the other in terms of route description, back-up info, photographs and diagrams, etc., and the additional cost is little compared to the cost of the walk.
We have greatly improved our Ramblefest-Amazon store and made it very easy to find the books and maps required for your walk.
An official Two Moors Way guidebook has been published by the Two Moors Way Association. It includes hand-drawn maps at a huge 1:18,000 scale based on Ordnance Survey maps, although very little non-route is shown. We highly recommend using Ordnance Survey online maps, or buying Ordnance Survey maps (see below). The guidebook is unavailable through Amazon but it is available through:
The Two Moors Way Association
63 Higher Combe Drive
Teignmouth, TQ14 9ML
Price £4.95 including p&p.
Also available – and displayed above – is “Walking the Two Moors Way” by Sue Viccars:
“This guidebook describes the 187km (102 mile) Devon Coast-to-Coast Path, or Two Moors Way. The trek travels south to north, from Wembury on the south coast, up through Dartmoor and mid-Devon, through Exmoor to Lynmouth on the Bristol Channel. The trek can be adjusted to suit each walker, and can take between a week to 10 days depending on itinerary. While thousands of visitors flock to Devon every year, few leave the honeypots and coast, so walkers on the Two Moors Way are treated to beautiful and remote countryside, far from the crowds. The route winds north from the coast, up past Ivybridge into the wilds of Dartmoor, where the path crosses the upper course of the River Dart, and passes through Dunstone Down and Chagford. The way through mid-Devon visits Witheridge and Knowstone before climbing onto Exmoor and into Somerset, before reaching the sea. This guidebook combines clear route descriptions and OS map extracts with plentiful practical details on each stage of the route as well as advice on accommodation, facilities, and how to travel to and from the Way. Also included is a wealth of detail on the history, geology and wildlife along the way, as well as noting points of interest to enhance your trek.”

For those who prefer physical maps, six Two Moors Way maps at 1:25,000 scale cover the route, but the Harvey map of the route (displayed) should suffice.
