About Us

A non-political body that seeks to maximise the benefits of sustainable tourism for its members, the local economy and communities whilst working together with all appropriate bodies engaged in promoting the economic and social well being of greater Exmoor. The area represented consists of Exmoor National Park, West Somerset, the Quantock Hills and North Devon. 

Our History:

Visit Exmoor is the  trading name for the Exmoor Tourist Association which in 2015 merged with the former Exmoor Tourism Partnership. 

The Association was set up in 1982 to help maximise the benefits of sustainable tourism for its members and to bring members’ businesses, and Exmoor, to the attention of people considering visiting Exmoor for holidays and short breaks. Its activities aim to benefit its members, local communities and the wellbeing of the Greater Exmoor region, by promoting the benefits of Exmoor to potential visitors. It is a non-profit making organisation, using subscriptions for the promotion of their members and Greater Exmoor.
