Introducing Exmoor National Park

Almost twice the size of its wild west Cornish neighbour,  at first glance Devon presents itself as a county with a more tranquil and timeless feel ,  a more rounded landscape of sweeping pastures, thatched cottages serving up cream teas,  picture postcard villages and twisting lanes.  Yet for those taking a Devon Walking Holiday whilst you will find all this on your walk,  your two feet are a passport through so much more than the usual “scrumpy” and village fete stereotype.

Smaller and less harsh that its neighbouring Dartmoor what Exmoor Walking Holidays have over the former is the dramatic collision of moor with Ocean. The Moorland literally ends by plunging into the Bristol Channel down incredible Hogs Back coastal cliffs, the highest in England - an incredible 800 feet of bare rock – there is simply nowhere else like it in...
