A place to escape to, recognised as one of the best locations for walking in Europe, be amazed by it’s dark skies full of stars totally free from light pollution (Europe’s first International Dark Sky Reserve) and be thrilled with the road cycling, good enough to host the Tour of Britain. On Exmoor it is still possible to find tranquility and peace as well as rediscover your sense of adventure.
