Coastal national park region of North Devon
Exmoor Tours with Great British Trips
Exmoor is one of the smallest of Britain's National Parks, but contains within it an open landscape of wild open moors and wooded valleys so you can enjoy walks, cycle or take a horse ride along the excellent trail network, including 600 miles of marked footpaths. The national park is home to many rare and important species of plants, birds and animals, a treat for all nature lovers. You can also enjoy the comforts of a local cream tea in one of Exmoor's beautiful villages including Dunster with its 14th century church and priory, 18th century water mill and castle which overlooks the village. On the north coast of the National Park lie the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth - dubbed the Little Swizerland of England bye the Victorians because of the spectacular scenery and cliff railway.
