Exmoor This National Park is a truly captivating landscape that contains an amazing variety of terrains within 267 square miles of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, sculpted by both nature and local inhabitants over thousands of years.
Beach Lovers Woolacombe Beach is only an hour’s drive away; a haven for beach bunnies and surfers of all abilities. Visit on a sunny day and you’ll soon see why this three-mile long stretch of golden sand has won both the blue flag and Premier Seaside Beach awards, as well as being hailed Britain’s Best Beach by Coast magazine in 2012, and more recently by Trip Advisor in 2015.
Night Time Delight Exmoor National Park’s night sky is the first place in England and only the second in the world which has been awarded special protected status. The remarkable lack of light pollution produces exceptional conditions for stargazing. Take the car up during a meteor shower and expect to see around 50-60 shooting stars an hour (don’t forget blankets and a flask of hot chocolate)!
Active Relaxation Families who prefer to gallop on horses, swing from tree tops and roll in mud puddles as opposed to playing charades by the fire will be in their element here. From paintballing in Stoke Woods to zip-lining at Go Ape and pony trekking through the beautiful countryside and moorland, there really is something for everyone.
Castles and Mansions Stately home fans will enjoy a trip to Dunster Castle; a Victorian country house dramatically positioned on a wooded hill, with lavish interiors including a stunning 17th century carved staircase. A little closer to home, Knightshayes Court is a stunning Gothic Mansion from the same era. Explore one of the few surviving works from architect William Burges; a rich fusion of medieval romanticism and lavish decoration.
Oh I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside! Take a breath-taking drive across the top of Exmoor to discover a host of unspoilt Victorian seaside gems nestled at the foot of the imposing cliffs of the North Devon Coast. Lynmouth is connected to Lynton via a cliff railway and sits at the foot of the picturesque Watersmeet gorge. These pretty coastal twin towns are a painter’s dream and a honey pot for visitors during high seasons.
