Exmoor National Park, Somerset
Exmoor National Park has some of the most stunning scenery on the Somerset/Devon borders, and stretches to the North Devon coast; a unique landscape of working farmland, woods and valleys, and rugged moors of gorse and heather, where wild ponies roam free. Explore this beautiful area on foot, bicycle or horseback, or pootle about the narrow lanes by car – you’ll be constantly ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ at the beautiful sights that greet you – you may even be lucky enough to spot red deer in the wild. There are heaps of places to visit and things to see and do within Exmoor National Park bit one of the best is to climb to the summit of Dunkery Beacon where you'll be blown away by the spectacular panoramic views. Take the family to play on the sands at Minehead or Watchet or go and spend a quiet half hour watching the world go by at the pretty harbour at Porlock Weir. Soak up the history and intrigue of Dunster Castle or Arlington Court, pootle through the gorgeous countryside on a steam train with the West Somerset Railway; stroll along the river at Watersmeet or Tarr Steps, and ride the Victorian cliff railway at Lynton and Lynmouth. There’s no shortage of tea shops, country inns and restaurants for when you're hungry.
