Exmoor

Explore the wind-scoured wilderness of Exmoor, with its landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, and plenty of pubs and tearooms serving delicious local produce.

Attractions

Food & drink

Look out for Exmoor Jersey Blue cheese, made by local specialist cheesemakers across the region.

Exmoor also produces cider, and preserves the cider making tradition. Visit the Torre Cider Farm in Washford and you can taste cider straight from the barrel, as well as home-made cakes and cream teas. Find out more on the What’s on Exmoor website.

The beautiful 16th Century Tarr Farm Inn, near Dulverton and the River Barle, is well worth a visit. From outside the Inn, the whole of Exmoor National Park unfolds into a stunning view of wooded valleys, open moorland and the much-photographed, prehistoric Tarr Steps. Find out more on the Tarr Farm website.

Horse riding
