The England region

The West Country/Somerset region

The Exmoor National Park is a large beautiful and peaceful area of wild, rugged countryside in the South West of England. The Park came into existance in 1954 and covers 267 square miles. It is made up of two thirds of the County of Somerset and one third of the county of Devon. It is believed 8000 years ago the majority of Exmoor was continuous oak woodland, but after the end Ice Age (10-12,000 years ago) the climate improved and vegetation began to grow.

Today, Exmoor is a place of outstanding natural beauty with its high rolling moorland, rugged coast, ancient woods, rivers and streams. Approximately 27% of the Park is moorland with the heather and grass moors are important for the wildlife and scenic beauty. Between Combe Martin and Minehead there is 34 miles of coastline, with the woods between The Foreland and Porlock representing the longest stretch of coastal woodland in England and Wales.

Exmoor has spectacular views and an abudnance of wildlife, some of which is unique to Exmoor. The infamous Exmoor ponies can been seen grazing on the moors, coombs and commons. There are a large number of wild red deer, which are more secretive, but can be seen with patience. In the late autumn during the rut, the stags can be heard roaring in the wooded valleys.

There are many rivers and deep wooded coombes on Exmoor, also hundreds of miles of footpaths and bridleways. Fishing on the River Exe and the Barle is very popular.
