Free guided walks

Enjoy a 2 to 3 hour walk

Ideal for families, groups & schools


Our team of qualified DPHT Guides are delighted to offer walks at Bellever FREE to groups of 6+ 

Enjoy a great family/group walk at Bellever to experience the wonders of Dartmoor – flora, fauna, history, archaeology, wildlife – and especially ponies!

All special walks must be pre-booked – please contact DPHT 01626 833234 or email

Walks are taken at a steady pace. The terrain is partly tracks and roads, partly moorland and forestry, so good, waterproof footwear and warm, windproof/waterproof clothes, over several layers, plus an appropriate hat for the weather are all advised! Sun cream when sunny and windy too. Please bring refreshments.

Meeting Point unless stated otherwise is Bellever Forest at Postbridge car park

(SX646 788). Not the Visitor Centre car park but across the road in the woods.

Dogs allowed – on leads only.

Themed walks are also scheduled through the year.  Please see our NEWS page for updates and details on how to book.

Free Guided Walks

Education and information are an important part of our work to safeguard the future of the ponies on Dartmoor. We welcome schools, groups and families to our heritage site at Bellever Forest on Dartmoor.

“Just wanted to say that we both really enjoyed the walk today. In the car my daughter was saying at first she thought it was going to be boring but after 20 minutes she enjoyed herself and enjoyed the bit about the gravestones and cist. She is a bit dark in that way. Anyway, that’s high praise from a 13 year old full of attitude! Thank you for taking the walk.”
