With its high sea cliffs and jutting rock formations, the Valley of Rocks creates a true sense of drama within the National Park’s 55 kilometres of coastline. Every summer, the surrounding acres of western gorse, ling and bell heather come alive with blooming amethyst-hued flora.
The traditional upland landscapes are punctuated by historic farmsteads and villages. Dunster is reputed to be one of the best preserved medieval villages in the country and is home to a number of historic features including its castle, yarn market, dovecote and tithe barn.
The National Park’s most famous landmark is Tarr Steps – a stone clapper bridge shaded by ancient woodland. You can hike there from the town of Dulverton, along the banks of the River Barle.
Ancient wooded valleys on Exmoor along with wild romantic moorlands are home to a host of fascinating wildlife, including majestic red deer, elusive otters, over 250 species of bird and some of the UK’s rarest bats and butterflies.
Exmoor is renowned for its fantastic local food producers. Oysters from the sea, venison from the moors and red ruby Devon beef from its rich farmland are all on offer.
