Exmoor: there is nowhere else quite like it

Whatever your interests, you will be stunned and seduced by spectacular Exmoor where you can enjoy a wealth of experiences amidst magnificent landscapes and majestic seascapes.

So spectacular, the area is designated as the Exmoor National Park to protect it for you and future generations to enjoy. Its timeless beauty has been shaped by thousands of years of history and an ever present passion to sustain its qualities for the future.

Experience one of England’s last remaining tranquil areas and discover the dramatic North Devon coast and the charms of the West Somerset coast that Exmoor straddles. 

There is nowhere else like it: stunning scenery, magnificent wildlife, views to remember forever, unspoilt villages, unique local characters, delicious local food and genuine hospitality that will entice you back for more.

Take a break from modern day pressures discover Exmoor’s hidden treasures.

England’s highest sea cliffs reach up into the radiant blue sky and plunge down to meet the refreshing sun kissed sea. Ancient rocky outcrops, hidden Atlantic coves and miles of coastal footpaths can be explored, including stretches of the longest and most attractive National Trail, the South West Coast Path. Rivers tumble from colourful heather clad moors down Devon’s deep tree lined combes and through Somerset vales into the finest unspoilt countryside you can find.

A wealth of wildlife abounds including the magnificent red deer, the rare and hardy Exmoor pony, wild birds, rare butterflies, lichens and trees not found growing or living anywhere else in the world. Winding leafy lanes lead you to charming villages and hamlets, unspoilt as if lost in time, where cultural charms, true hospitality and the special flavour of local food can be sampled.

Clean pure air freshly blown in from across the Atlantic ocean nurtures both land and life, the sounds of nature are free from the noise of modern life, the sun sets over the spectacular landscape and dark night skies light up with countless stars. This magical area steeped in great mysteries, legend and romance, has captivated its many visitors and preserved an environment from past generations lost elsewhere forever.

A rare and romantic retreat for a relaxing respite, an exhilarating environment for exciting outdoor exploits, a paradise for painters and photographers, a haven for historians and writers, a warren of paths for walkers and a wonderland for wildlife lovers.
