The Exmoor National Park region

Exmoor is a spectacular national park covering around 266 square miles. The scenery is varied with stream and ancient woodland to open heath. For all outdoor activities you can't really get much better that this.

If you don't want to get too active there's more than enough attractions. Here are just a small number of them:

* Horner is a National Trust village with many thatched cottages, water mill, tea rooms, ancient woods and the trickling Horner Water which form part of a National Nature Reserve which is renowned for red deer, rare lichens and ancient oaks. A walk beside Horner Water on a sunny day is simply magical.

* Allerford is another National Trust village within the Holnicote Estate and has a fifteenth century packhorse bridge over Aller Brook. The West Somerset Rural Life Museum is located in the old thatched school house.

* Culbone sits deep in a shaded valley, famous for having the smallest parish church in England and for inspiring Coleridge's 'Kubla Khan'.

* Doone Country is the area around Badgworthy Water where R.G. Blackmore's novel 'Lorna Doone' was set. Attractions include Oare church which is mentioned in the novel.

* Dunkery Beacon is the highest point on Exmoor at 1705 feet (519m) from where on a clear day up to 13 counties can be seen together with the Bristol Channel and Welsh mountains many miles away.

* Dunster is a medieval village with its Yarn Market, Castle, Priory Church, Tithe Barn, various shops and places to eat.

* Lynton and Lynmouth was once referred to as 'Little Switzerland' and is famous for its spectacular coastal scenery. Lynmouth is linked to Lynton by a water powered cliff railway.

* Watersmeet is where the Hoar Water meets the East Lyn. It is a lovely beauty spot and Site of Special Scientific Interest and has a welcoming tea garden and visitor centre.

* Valley of the Rocks offers spectacular sea cliffs rising to nearly 1000 feet (300m) and is also home to some very agile goats.

* Selworthy is unsurpassed as a chocolate-box village, with its picture postcard green surrounded by thatched cottages, National Trust shop and splendid tearoom. Prominent for all to see is the newly refurbished Selworthy church which stands out as a land mark from miles away.

* Wimbleball Lake was formed by damming the Haddeo and now acts as a reservoir. It is also the home of the South West Lakes Trust Water Sports Centre and offers various water sports activities.


Porlock is a beautiful coastal village in South West England, situated in a deep hollow on Exmoor. It adjoins a Porlock Ridge and Saltmarsh nature reserve which has now been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

A picturesque, wooded combe called Hawkcombe leads about three miles from the village up to high open moorland. The stream from Hawkcombe runs past an interesting Victorian hunting lodge, called The Cleeve, then underground beneath a hotel in the centre of the village.

The South West Coast Path goes through Porlock, many walkers stopping rather than continuing on the gargantuan walk to Lynton. There is also a Coleridge Way walk.

Culbone church is said to be the smallest church in England. The main structure is 12th century. Services are still held there, despite the lack of road access - it is a two-mile walk from Porlock Weir, and some 3-4 miles from Porlock itself.

A new toll road bypasses the 1-in-4 gradient on Porlock Hill. There is an ancient stone circle on the hill.

The area has links with several Romantic poets, and R. D. Blackmore the author of Lorna Doone.
