The area around Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers in South Devon is fairly unique for the south coast as it seems to be off the beaten tourist track and sees few walkers.

This South Devon walk includes a section of the South West Coast Path, one of England's prettiest rivers and ruined church dating back 1000 years. The start is the pretty village of Noss Mayo.
Stall Moor lies between the Yealm and Erme rivers of south Dartmoor. The moor is a typical plain of grassland - rather bland and featureless, but giving good views over the Erme in good weather. Stall Moor is easy to get to and gives fine access to some of the more remote parts of the southern moor. This walk only skirts the edge of this but it gives us a taste as to what lies within.
This is a straightforward 5 mile walk with little wet ground. If mist descends then it would be easy to get disorientated on Stall Moor. No military areas to worry about.
