Scotland be blowed! Nicest of the long distance walks I’ve done was definitely the good old English Coast to Coast – lots of lovely history, scenery, wildlife, villages, towns (well I didn’t go for Richmond much, but all the other towns -) it’s a great walk! East to West, you end up in the Lakes – magic! (That you are also walking INTO most of the weather is neither here nor there to two such experienced Dartmoor addicts as you.)
P.S. A spiflicating New Year to all Blondes and Brindles!
Hi Suzanne. We are just getting plans together to offer some Blonde Bimbles and Wild Women Camps. Keep an eye on this blogspace if you think you would be interested.
I’m really enjoying your blogs and it’s giving me inspiration to try to make mine as interesting as possible.
Would it be possible to add me to your blogroll too please?
Hi Paula. Well done on Table Mountain, that sounds fantastic and a lot warmer than Pen y Fan was this week for Blonde One and I! I’ve added you blog to our blogroll. My advice would be to post little and often, people seem to like that.
Hiy. Found your web page while trying to find info on Whooping Rock. I’d like to go up there but myself and partner are not as young as we were so parking as nearby as possible would be helpful – but where can one park to get closest to the rock? There’s a couple pf farm type places neaby but they look a bit private. Thanks 🙂 Heather the Blonde
Hi Heather – a great choice it is a lovely spot.
We haven’t been for a while but had a look at the map for you. We parked in North Bovey which has a good sized car park but we remember there being space to leave a car a bit nearer than that just by the bridge over the River Bovey SX 737 837. The track to Langdon SX 723 828 is a good one and you take the little spur off it onto the moor (there are some rocks to sit on there before you go up the hill) but we don’t remember there being any parking on the lane up to the start of it. Best thing is probably to drive and have a look. The Langdon lane is almost certainly the best way up. Hope that helps, let us know how you get on. B2
Hi, I’ve just watched you on telly… do you mind if I ask blond 2 what trousers she’s wearing? I’ve been looking for a nice pair for a while.. but because I’m a little bigger (size 16/18) I can’t find any that fit nice.. 🙁 yours looked lovely though!.
Hi Laura. We don’t mind at all, finding walking trousers to fit can be tricky. Those were Rohan summer weight Troggings (still warm enough in winter with thermals). You might have missed my challenge to Cotswold Outdoor in response to which they found me a pair of Craghopper Kiwi Pro Stretch that also fitted well. Cotswold’s customer service department are very helpful.
Thank you so much for your help! 🙂 I really appreciate you taking the time. Happy walking!
Just wanted to let you know I went with your recommendation for the Kiwi pro stretch and they’re great! Had a lovely day walking right ind Holmfirth today in them and I really like my new trousers! Thank you for your help.
Hi Laura. We aim to please! So glad that your new trousers are doing their job well. I understand only too well how important it is to get the right pair. Interestingly we had some contact from Craghoppers this week. I will pass your comments on. Happy walking! x
