The Exmoor National Park was formed in 1954 and covers 265 square miles. It is an area with a character all its own, a wonderful blend of moor and heath, swift flowing streams, deep wooded valleys and the high coastal cliffs. Many of the settlements here are ancient, dating back to well before the Norman Conquest.
Throughout the National Park there are relics from the Bronze and Iron Ages such as hut circles, standing stones and barrows. This is also the land of the wild Exmoor pony and herds of red deer, matched by a wealth of bird and plant life.
Exmoor's coast has its share of sea birds - guillemots and razorbills for example, and from Lynmouth there are boat trips to view the cliffs and their birds. Beside the rivers and streams you may catch site of herons and kingfishers.
We are near to the picturesque moorland villages of Malmsmead, Oare, Simonsbath, Exford, Dulverton and Dunster and to the seaside towns of Lynmouth, Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Porlock and Minehead. They offer a wide selection of tearooms, restaurants, shops and museums. The market towns of South Molton and Barnstaple are within easy reach.
