The Best Exmoor Holiday ideas and Guides in and
around Exmoor National Park for groups, families or just for you!
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.
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 supper 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. NEW! Hike up Dunkery beacon for the biggest skies on the moor!, dates throughout the Summer.
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.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. Maybe even take a tour of Victorian Lynton and Lynmouth, with a ride on the historic cliff railway followed by a trip on an original steam train,whatever takes your fancy!
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, moorland 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, needle felting with wool from our own sheep!
