Exmoor is blessed with having it all. It is one of the few National Parks that has a spectacular coastline with the highest cliffs in the British Isles. There is a good chance of meeting the rare Exmoor pony and if you are quiet and observant, seeing the majestic Ed Deer.
It is one of the smaller National Parks and has always had that "friendly" feel to it. you can be high on the moor withuot feeling totally isolated. Remote farmsteads dot the landscape and rushing rivers point you towards the sea and civilisation.
A variety of scenery really is what walkers notice when visiting Exmoor. Every few miles the scenery changes from high cliffs, open moorland, deep river valleys, lakes, shingle beaches, ridges, pretty villages and harbours. Challenging wlaks a plenty, excellent paths and signage and 400 miles of bridleways all make it a walkers paradise.
A whole range of different walks can be found on www.activeexmoor.com
Some people prefer to wlak with a guided group so that they don't have to worry about the route and can learn from a knowledgeable local guide about the area they are visiting. The Exmoor National Park Authority provides a full programme of guided walks including village trails, farm visits and specialised walks for studying aspects of natural history such as fungi, woodlands and wild flowers. Details of these can be found at www.exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk
