Exmoor National Park is 27 miles (45min car journey) from Manor Cottage. A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Home to the filming of Poldark, the north Somerset & Devon coast is as beautiful as you have seen on the famous TV series. The stunning coastal village of Porlock / Porlock Weir and in land castle town of Dunster are well worth a visit - you could spend days exploring Exmoor's treasures, and still not see it all!

Bampton is about 3 miles from the boundary of the Exmoor National Park - this national park, being one of the smallest at 170,000 acres, is therefore very easy to explore by car. One third of Exmoor lies in Devon, the other two thirds in Somerset. The highest point on the moor, Dunkery Beacon, is only 20 miles from Bampton. Exmoor ponyThe park contains a wide variety of countryside from rolling farmland to the high moorland; Exmoor meets the sea with craggy cliffs and wooded valleys, and the rivers are fast flowing and picturesque. Much of Exmoor is farmed - the wild moorland accounts for about a quarter of the area, and about one tenth is woodland. Exmoor ponyExmoor is rich in wild life. Perhaps the most famous are the unique Exmoor ponies which frequently graze along the sides of the road (or even stand in the road!) - they are of stocky build and a very attractive chocolate-brown colour. Red deer grazingLess frequently one may see herds of red deer in the distance - they are shy of humans, but if not disturbed can remain visible for some time. At night time one may come upon significant numbers of them by the roadside. Overhead there is a rich bird life, the most captivating of which are the buzzards, circling high and sending smaller creatures diving for cover. View from DunkeryIt can be explored by car, on foot, or by bicycle, and there are plenty of opportunities for riding and pony trekking. On the right is the view from Dunkery towards the Bristol Chanel. Wales in the background! There is such a plethora of places to visit that it is difficult to select just a few, but here is a sample: The huge cairn on the top of Dunkery BeaconDunkery Beacon - the highest point on Exmoor (519 metres), giving extensive views across the moor and the Bristol Channel. Simonsbath - a pretty village close to the middle of Exmoor. Exford - another delightful village, and there is a bridge as well as the ford across the river Exe. Tarr Steps - a very old stone footbridge across the river Barle. Winsford - yet another ford (and a bridge) and the famous inn, the Royal Oak. Lorna Doone country - if you saw the 'made for TV' drama or have read the book, you will know that this tale is set on Exmoor. There is a statue in Dulverton, and the 13th century church of St Mary the Virgin, Oare, in 'Doone valley', where the shooting of Lorna took place, may be visited. R.D.Blackmore's grandfather was Rector of Oare, and the story may not have been entirely fictional. Porlock WeirPorlock and Porlock Weir - on the northern coast. Near here there is also Allerford which boasts a picturesque bridge and ford. Valley of the Rocks at Lynton - where Exmoor meets the sea.
