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 a homemade picnic with local, Exmoor produce eaten by a moorland stream or on a sunny hilltop. Foraging, bird and plant i.d. and spotting wildlife are all part of a very special experience.
Stargazing on Exmoor
Join us at The Hub for a stargazing evening or hike up Dunkery beacon for sundowners and a 360′ view from the highest point on Exmoor. Then use our telescopes to scan the night sky.Or 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. You could follow this with a delicious home cooked supper back at the farmhouse, or a barbecue on our firepit with mulled wine or cider, toasted marshmallows and lots of information about the stars and planets.
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 fused glass suncatchers, coasters or christmas gifts. You can even choose to make an heirloom Christmas Fairy, needle felted with wool from our own sheep!
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 exmoor, and spent the next nine years visiting and exploring this magical place. We sold our West Sussex Veterinary Practice and bought our little farmhouse in 2014 . Let us help you to make the very best of your time on Exmoor, by providing opportunities such as “stargazing” walks and meals at our farmhouse, guided walks and activities,and by recommending our favourite places for you to visit.
A Fabulous Exmoor holiday cottage!
Come and stay in our unique holiday cottage and experience the very best of Exmoor hospitality, whilst being as independent as you like.
Our luxurious barn conversion, Spindrift Barn, is attached to our ancient farmhouse, has a woodburner and sauna and is just a short riverside walk from the 2 pubs and tearooms of Exford.
We are ideally placed for exploring the whole of Exmoor on foot, bike or car!
