Samuel Coleridge, William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy drew inspiration from the wild moors and rolling hills of Exmoor. There's no end of walks to discover. 

Our family favourites include:

- an exhilarating coastal walk at beautiful Bossington. Visit the pebbly beach and hike to the top of Bossington Hill, dropping down through shady woods to the village for a cream tea!

- walking to Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor. Place a stone on the summit. Gorgeous views of surrounding moorland and, on a clear day, the Bristol Channel and hills up to eighty miles away. Spot wild Exmoor ponies and deer. 

- crossing Tarr Steps, an ancient clapper bridge (large flat slabs of stone dating back to 1000 BC) and walking along the winding River Barle through deep forests on a seven-mile hike to the pretty village of Withypool or, for a gentler walk, looping back through lush meadows. 


We have a range of Ordnance Survey maps and other info at the cottage.
