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!!)
