Walking on Exmoor
- Exmoor is home to some of the best walking in England. It has over 600 miles of well-kept footpaths and bridleways, with excellent signposting throughout.
- It has the start of the South West Coast Path at Minehead, with the first 35 miles along the spectacular Exmoor coastline offering some challenging climbs. It has the highest point along the whole 630 miles at Great Hangman above Combe Martin.
- It is home to the Coleridge Way, a 51 mile linear route through more delightful scenery. A 100 mile circular route is possible by returning along the South West Coast Path and West Somerset Coast Path.
- Exmoor is one of the smaller National Parks, home to deep wooded combes with fast-running rivers, stunning coastal scenery and high open moorland with views to Dartmoor and Wales.
- Have a look at our shorter walks and the longer walks to give you ideas of walks you can do while here. We even have transport to take walkers to less accessible areas on Exmoor.
- There are ‘Walkers are Welcome’ towns at Ilfracombe, Lynton and Lynmouth, Porlock, Dunster and Wiveliscombe. There are plenty of great walks right from your accommodation’s doorstep.
- Guided walks are available and organised by the Exmoor Society, the Exmoor Rangers.
- The Exmoor Walking Festival takes place each year around the May Day Bank Holiday break with a selection of friendly guided walks.
Hindon Organic Farm is offering a free 2 night B&B break for a couple at their delightful Exmoor farm. It nestles in a deep valley close to the South West Coast Path and is a short drive from Porlock and Minehead. You are welcome to extend the holiday should you wish. Selworthy National Trust village is a short walk away. Paths lead from there on to Selworthy Beacon with wonderful coastal scenery.
