Go Green in Minehead

Enjoy the great outdoors – on foot, bike, bus or steam train.

Minehead offers the perfect place for enjoying yourself outdoors and leaving your car at your accommodation base. The unique Moor Rover bus service will collect you and drop you off, with your bike or dog, at your chosen destination to enable a linear or circular walk.

The ExploreMoor website also has a choice of self-guided walks based on local public transport. These include both circular and linear walks in the area written by experienced local guides.

If you prefer two wheels, then Exmoor is one of the best places to enjoy mountain biking with a wide choice of off-road bridleways to follow. For those who prefer to keep on tarmac then the quiet country lanes are a delight for seeing Exmoor close-up.

Are you a stargazer? Or have you often wondered what these recent television programmes are all about, looking at the Milky Way? Exmoor is part of the Dark Skies project and is an excellent place to see the heavens without light pollution from street lights and towns. You can get some amazing photos on clear nights and even with just binoculars, you will be surprised at how much and how far you can see.
