This National Park has some of the most diverse scenery - undualting wooded valleys, plunging cliffs and the wil beauty of the moors. The Ancient Tarr Steps is something to be marvelled at, and you'll be inspired by the picturesque scenery at Lynton and Lynmouth wher you might stop for a traditional cream tea before heading back to Cockercombe to read Lorna Doone by the fire.
