Exmoor Walking

Exmoor Walking Guides

Exmoor National Park has some of the most varied walking in England.   We offer both guided and self guided routes, for groups or individuals, and  you get  to experience the special places that are hard to find on your own .We can include a pub lunch stop to really make the most of our Exmoor hospitality, or you could choose a to have a ” John Ridd” picnic…….freshly baked mutton pasties eaten by a moorland stream or on a sunny hilltop.

Stargazingwalk and farmhouse supper Exmoor

Exmoor Dark Skies Stargazing

Follow in the steps of the drovers of old and come for a walk along the Exe Valley Way and up onto the moor to see the very best of Exmoor’s dark skies. We follow this with a delicious home cooked, home raised meal  back at the farmhouse with mulled wine or cider and lots of information about the stars and planets, with the use of our telescope and binoculars.

Exmoor Activities

Exmoor Activities
Rainy Days are Fun!

We have loads of ideas for rainy days….come for an afternoon or a full day at our barn. We go out foraging in the woods, moor and river valley and then bring our booty back to the woodburner and get creative! Learn lino printing, or Collography. Play with watercolours, inks and collage. Learn how to make jams and jellies,  sourdough and focaccia bread. You can even choose to make an heirloom Christmas Fairy!

Exmoor Wildlife and Special Interest Tours

Exmoor  Experiences, Literary Footsteps.

We love adding interest to our walks by showing you the best spots to see Red Deer, Exmoor ponies or Highland cattle. Our picnics are always in the most scenic places and we can take in ancient archeological sites or atmospheric little village churches, or follow the footsteps of Samuel Coleridge, Wordsworth or R.D.Blackmore’s Lorna Doone, whatever takes your fancy!

Who are we and what can we do for you?!

Malcolm and I spent a long weekend in Luxborough in 2005, fell in love with the pubs, the walks and the friendliness of the moor, and spent the next eleven years visiting and exploring this magical place.  We would like to help you to make the very best of your time here, by providing opportunities such as “stargazing” walks and meals at our farmhouse, and by recommending our favourite places for you to visit.
