"Why did no-one tell me how beautiful it is?" is the comment overheard most often in these parts. The sheer drama and loveliness of our landscape often belies description, so come and visit Exmoor and see for yourself. We'd love to welcome you.
From towering cliffs and rocky beaches to soft heather-clad hills, green valleys and crystal-clear rivers and streams, there's a whole photo album's worth of stunning views to admire. See the famous Exmoor ponies up on the moors, take a trip on a steam train or a Victorian Cliff Railway and walk a myriad of ancient trails, long-distance routes and scenic pathways. Settle down to enjoy a refreshing drink, delicious cream tea or hearty supper from locally grown Exmoor produce. And, after dark, discover a star show unlike any other and you'll understand why we were the first Dark Sky Reserve in Europe. Escape the Everyday on Exmoor.
