Join us on our Exmoor guided walks and explore some of the less travelled paths of Exmoor

Malcolm and I have spent the  past 11 years or so exploring the length and breadth of Exmoor National Park. We now have a good knowledge of the best places to go depending on the weather, or for spotting wildlife or the best picnic spots and views. Join us to make the most of your time here, and experience the best that Exmoor has to offer!

Please click on each guided walk below for more detail and phone for more info…..we are always out and about so can usually fit in a short notice request!

Each of our guided walks can be adjusted to your group’s ages and abilities, so that it takes a morning or an afternoon, and can include a picnic or a traditional pub lunch.

charges are £15 per person, per half day ,with a minimum charge of £ 90

£30 per person for a full day, minimum charge £150.

Lunch taken at a pub is payable to the Landlord, to allow you choice from the whole menu and the full freedom of the bar!

Our picnics are handmade and use local Exmoor produce where possible.

Priced at £10 per head, a typical menu would include homemade sausage rolls, cheese and homemade bread, fruit and crunchy flapjacks with lemonade or soup, depending on the season. We have thoroughly researched the most scenic and comfortable spots for our Exmoor picnics…no risk of finding that peachy sheltered spot just around the corner when you’ve just finished!

Veggie, gluten free and allergies easily catered for…just ask at booking.
