Where coast and countryside meet

Exmoor National Park offers a tranquil wilderness far from the madding crowd.

As the United Kingdom’s smallest National Park, Exmoor has qualities unique to this corner of Britain. Its appeal rests in its diverse landscape, where coast and countryside meet.

There is peace and tranquillity to be found among the Exmoor ponies, the heather and gorse of the expansive moors, wooded river valleys, quiet villages and coastal combes.

This is a place to treasure – walk, hike or stroll along the network of footpaths and take in the surroundings, home to a vast array of wildlife and flora found nowhere else in Britain. Sparsely populated, Exmoor enjoys limited light pollution and is designated as a Dark Sky Reserve.

People are important to the culture and heritage of Exmoor – the landscape shaped by centuries of farming and grazing livestock – with local crafts, food and produce contributing greatly to the local economy.

Lynton & Lynmouth are the jewel in Exmoor’s crown – situated at the heart of this forgotten world they are an ideal base to explore and discover.
