Spring in Exmoor

When the moors and countryside are bursting into life.

there's nothing quite like spring in exmoor

It’s great to breathe in the fresh Spring air that drifts in from the moors.

Our two beautiful towns awaken from their Winter slumber ready to welcome a new Spring season of visitors.

Explore the quaint streets and shops of Lynton & Lynmouth for some locally-made arts and crafts, gifts or clothing. And it’s always the season for a traditional Devon cream tea!

What we love best about a new Spring is getting out and exploring. There’s always a new trail to find or a familiar one to walk amongst rolling hills and deep wooded valleys of Exmoor.

Everywhere is bursting with fresh growth and teeming with new life – it’s magical.
