Plan for the Day

We will meet outside Exeter St. Davids Railway Station at 10:25 and catch the GWR service along the recently reopened Dartmoor Line to Okehampton. You will need to purchase an off-peak single to Okehampton for this, using the GWR app or at the station. (£2.60 with 16-25 railcard)

We'll then do the 10-mile spectacular around Dartmoor 

After that it will be time to explore Okehampton and head for our Christmas meal at 5pm! 

Venue: The London Inn, 22 West Street, Okehampton 

We will provide a coach back home to Exeter, picking us up at approximately 7:30pm, so we expect to be back by 9pm at the latest.
