Exmoor Attractions

Heritage, History and Gardens

Exmoor is home to an incredible number of heritage attractions, from the National Trust's Dunster Castle, to the longest restored steam railway in the country - The West Somerset Steam Railway. There are also several gardens in the area for the green fingered. 


It is hard to get closer to nature than a break on Exmoor.  You'll be sure to see the herds of wild Exmoor ponies on the stunning moors although you may find the Red Deer more elusive.  Of course you could always take an Exmoor Safari with one of the many safari operators on the moor who can guide you.  




Within 1 hour's drive you can be at the beach or at any of the huge variety of family attractions from the popular Exmoor Zoo to the renowned Butlins holiday camp on a day pass.  

You can find out more about attractions on Exmoor on our web links page.  


Exmoor is often viewed as an enormous adventure playground.  Mountain bikers, walkers, climbers and para gliders are all routinely seen on the moor.  

For the less adventurous why not simply relax - drink in the slower pace of life and enjoy a cream tea or local ale in the many picturesque villages and towns in the area.
