Ok. Decision made. I have plotted the route from Willworthy, as suggested by Devondave, in over Hare Tor and out via Tavy Cleave. Basically it looks like an interesting route and minimises my car mileage coming in from North Devon. I am just waiting for a few days of dry weather to let the water levels drop for the stream crossings involved. Hopefully, it won't be too long. Thanks to all for their contributions.

I still haven't got round to trying out this route for myself.  I'll be interested to hear how you get on.

Yes, but we must remember that not everyone is capable or confident enough to walk longer distances across difficult terrain.

Absolutely. I admit I turned back on my first attempt at Fur Tor from the north.

I went from Fernworthy the other week, it is one of the easier routes, a bit wet as to be expected and the elephant grass a bit long at Statt's house, it was 10.6 miles.
