Wistman's Wood National Nature Reserve, Two Bridges, Dartmoor National Park

Wistman's Wood National Nature Reserve, Two Bridges, Dartmoor National Park

To visit, start from the car parking area across the road from Two Bridges Hotel. Follow the path that runs along the eastern side of the West Dart River to Wistman's Wood. Refer to the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map for detail. We've positioned Wistman's Wood on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location as well. The path that runs from the car parking area across the road from Two Bridges Hotel to Wistman's Wood is clearly visible on that satellite imagery.

Other routes include following the Lichway/Lych Way from Bellever or walking from the car parking area at Holming Beam. If you choose the latter, you'll have to cross the West Dart River which is only passable after a spell of dry weather.

Whilst you are at Wistman's Wood, we'd really recommend heading up to Longaford Tor. The views are spectacular.
