Exmoor

The countryside is breathtaking and a real must to visit. Quaint shops, great pubs and beautiful walks through all kinds of terrain. Dogs are clearly very welcome which is a rarity in other areas of the south west.

Stunning

Some of the finest coastal scenery in England, do not miss it! The Valley of the Rocks, a little further east, is particularly dramatic.

Mr Taylor March 2012

Most knowledgeable and informative guides in house and museum. Good value restaurant. Superb collection of model ships. Our visit lasted 4 hours

Hunting the Earl of Rone (¼ mile)

600 locals dress up as grenadiers and hunt down the evasive pimpernel on the fourth and final night of this four-day jolly. He is then mounted back to front on a donkey, paraded through the village and thrown in the sea. Who cares why.

Exmoor Zoo (5 ¼ miles)

Some amazing animals, including cheetahs and Arctic foxes. Close encounters are possible with some of them, including snakes and spiders.

Exmoor Zoo - rare animals

I visited this zoo on a rather damp misty day and there were very few people until it brightened up in the afternoon.The animals are nearly all endangered species some of which I had never heard of before. As most of them are small the area to walk around is not huge - there are no elephants, lions, camels etc. There are about 35 cages and a signed route so you don't miss any. There are talks/ feeding and some hands on every half hour but that means doubling back to and fro if you want to do them all. I enjoyed feeding and stroking a wallaby with a joey in her pouch and stroking a snake. There are some birds and off site they were rearing 4 rare parrots to be returned to the Amazon. There is an excellent very large covered area with picnic tables , a snack shack for drinks and a rather basic cafe. Extremely small number of toilets! There are some well known animals -as well as the wallabies there are meerkats, cheetahs, gibbons and some rare tiny marmozets in an indoor area.

Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (¾ mile)

There is so much to see and do here, one day won’t be enough. There are lots of animals, including a wolf pack, sea lions and a butterfly house, plus a dinosaur display and rides.
