Autumn in Exmoor

Take a break in our most colourful season

experience Exmoor ablaze with autumn colour

Exmoor really is a place for all seasons but Autumn is probably our favourite time of the year.

When most of the summer tourists have gone, Exmoor brings out its best colours; a medley of golden browns, warm oranges, rusty reds and velvety greens.  It really is the highlight of the Exmoor year. 

What we love most about Lynton & Lynmouth in the Autumn is how the trees give up the incredible views they’ve been hiding since the Spring.  Views that were once veiled by the leaves of Summer offer the walker a completely different perspective of this magical corner of North Devon and West Somerset.
