Explore the unspoilt landscape of Exmoor

Somerset & Devon

{Exmoor}

Crossing through Somerset and Devon, the stunning landscape of Exmoor is a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors. Take a walk across the moorland, enjoy the extensive cycle paths, or explore the countryside on horseback.

With 267 square miles of countryside, there are plenty of wildlife spotting opportunities too - why not take a red deer safari at dusk? A fantastic way to see the unspoilt landscape as the sun goes down. You'll also be sure to spot an Exmoor wild pony too!

An astronomer's paradise, Exmoor's skies are known to be some of the darkest in the country - stargazing is popular here, with many sights being visible to the naked eye, or pack your binoculars for a clearer view.

The heritage coast of Exmoor stretches from Combe Martin to the seaside town of Minehead. No trip to the coast here is complete without a visit to the medieval village of Dunster - with over 200 listed buildings, it is full of history, and an extremely attractive village.

Exmoor is also home to the country's first ever designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - The Quantock Hills offer stunning views, unspoilt moorlands and part of the Jurassic Coast. Wander through the foothills and discover the pretty villages here - perfect for trying a local cream tea!
