About Exmoor

Exmoor National Park extends for 267 square miles along the north coast of Somerset and down into Devon, famous for its incredible landscapes ripe for explorers, including vast swathes of open moorland – home to the iconic Exmoor ponies - tranquil ancient wooded valleys and the highest cliffs in England.
Exmoor is a great place to pull on your walking boots and head off for a hike or a short stroll – whatever your pace, there’s a path for you. Take the trail to the highest point at Dunkery Beacon or see if you can spot the adventurous goats in the Valley of the Rocks. Follow in the footsteps of Lorna Doone around the hamlet of Malmsmead, or face the challenge of the South West Coast Path for spectacular views across the Bristol Channel.
There’s also plenty of opportunity for a day out with a difference on Exmoor. You can ride the funicular railway which links the twin towns of Lynton on the cliffs and Lynmouth at sea level, 500ft below. See the medieval village of Dunster lit only by candlelight during its winter festival. Or take to the waves for some sea kayaking – where if you’re very, very lucky you might just spot a dolphin.
