There is so much to see and do on Exmoor…here our some of our suggestions:

Walks/Sights to See:

Dunkery Beacon - Pick a clear day and make this a must do activity whilst here - Great spot to see the sunrise/set!

Tarr Steps, Dulverton - Stone bridge over the River Exe is easily accessible, also a circular walk along the river/wood. Great pub next door!

Valley of the Rocks, Lynton - Incredible views along the short coastal path. Make a day trip by visiting Lynton & Lynmouth.

Watersmeet, Lynton & Lynmouth - A longer walk (2-3hrs), but stunningly beautiful, easy going walk alongside the river.

Heddon Valley - Stunning coastal footpath - you can see the full range of Exmoor’s beautiful landscapes and scenery!

Landacre Bridge, Withypool - Spectacular bridge spanning the River Barle. Perfect picnic spot, you can take a dip in the river and often Exmoor Ponies can be found nearby!


If you are here during Spring (Jan/Feb) make sure you wander up through Snowdrop Valley (literally this valley that Traveller’s Rest is in!!)

Beaches:

Most of the very close local beaches are small pebble beaches/bays - Porlock, Dunster Beach, or Ley Bay


If you are after sandy beaches with great surfing/sea access, often with lifeguards, then it is worth the slightly longer journey to one of these beaches: Woolacoombe Beach, Croyde Bay, or Saunton Sands

Large reservoir, great walking site as well as loads of water-based activities including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, rowing.
