This stage is really an add-on to the official route. There is an option to use the Erme-Plym Trail that is, in itself, an add-on to the original Two Moors Way. This will take you straight to Ivybridge through Brixton and Yealmpton. However, this route takes you along the coast to Wembury. The ferry option reduces the road walking considerably.
