Dartmoor National Park Walks from The Oxenham Arms

We have produced exclusively for our Oxenham Arms Hotel guests a series of 6 special Walking Guides from The Oxenham Arms which will allow the novice, semi professional or very experienced walker to enjoy Dartmoor at its best.

From the "30 minute Walk around South Zeal" guide. produced by the local history group up to 2, 3, 4 and 5 hour Dartmoor hill walks to the many Neolithic and Bronze Age sites.

Our guides come in leaflet form and include maps, detail step by step instructions as well as things to see and do along the way.

The guides have been designed, tried and tested by a local walking expert and Dartmoor Guide who lives opposite our hotel in South Zeal.

We hope you enjoy them ! Ask for them when you arrive at the hotel

Simply click on the 6 walks on the right hand side of this page to find out more.

The 6 Walks instructions and leaflets available from our reception area on arrival and check in to your room.

Dartmoor is marvellous walking country, rich in historic sites from prehistory right up to present day.

Dartmoor has the largest collection of Bronze Age sites in Great Britain.

There is a wide variety of flora and fauna, some quite rare, typical of a high moorland area.

Whilst the terrain and weather conditions can sometimes be challenging, the walker is constantly rewarded with a spectacular ever-changing landscape much appreciated by artists and photographers.

Spend some time away from our hectic modern world and enjoy Dartmoor which is a truly special place that offers something for everyone.

It is the largest area of "tranquillity" in Southern England; over 30% of the Dartmoor National Park is designated as nationally and internationally important for wildlife and it is one of the most significant areas in Western Europe for archaeology.


Walking boots are essential as well as good waterproofs

Jacket with hood

Waterproof trousers and/or gaiters



The walks are between 4 miles and 8 miles, maximum height 2000 feet (621 metres) above sea level

Terrain will be a mixture of sony and grassy tracks, open moorland with wet ground and safe river/stream crossings.

Dartmoor weather can sometimes be unpredictable but the MET OFFICE provide frequent updates which you can check before the start of your walk.
