Exmoor National Park
The 267 square miles of Exmoor were designated as a National Park in 1954. It straddles Devon and Somerset and has 34 miles of coastline and the highest sea cliffs in England. It is also home to some of our prettiest countryside and coastal holiday cottages. From Combe Martin on the park’s western edge to Dulverton in the south and Porlock on the north coast, Exmoor offers a varied landscape of moorland, farmland, river valleys and woodland. The National Park has recently been designated as Europe’s first International Dark Sky Reserve. This means that on clear nights, you’ll get a better view of the heavens than anywhere else – thanks to a lack of light pollution and development.
It says a lot about the place. It’s wild and empty, dotted with picture perfect villages, tumbling streams, great pubs, impossibly picturesque tea rooms and boats bobbing gently in secluded harbours. Exmoor is a fabulous place for a cottage holiday. It’s easy to get to North Devon’s finest beaches yet far enough from the crowds to offer peace and quiet. You can head for the tourist hotspots or spend your time high among the heather on the moors, heading down only when it’s time for a pub lunch, cream tea or to head back to your holiday accommodation.
