Things to do

In Exmoor you can be adventurous as you like – only you can limit you!! The level for most of the activities ranges from beginner to experienced.

  • Mountain biking

  • Rock climbing

  • Kayaking

  • Coasteering

  • Canoeing

  • Rowing

  • Archery

  • Kite Sports

  • Paddleboarding

  • Fly fishing

  • Angling

  • Horse/pony riding

  • Clay pigeon shooting

Or walk in the footsteps of Coleridge and Wordsworth, along the Coleridge Way, Two Moors Way or the South West Coast Path


For those who wish to take things a little more gently:

  • Experience a Red Stag safari

  • Visit one of the sandy beaches from Blue Anchor to Minehead

  • Exmoor beaches are generally rocky but are perfect for rockpooling or fossil hunting

  • Ride on West Somerset Railway’s steam engine through the beautiful Exmoor and Somerset countryside, from Bishop’s Lydeard to Minehead

During the summer, take a boat trip. You will be able to appreciate the impressive coastline from

a different angle and may even spot a seal or dolphins

Alternatively, just sit back and enjoy the wildlife at beauty spots such as Watersmeet, Hurlestone

Point or Heddon Valley, to name but a few. Keep your eyes open for kingfishers, dippers, otters,

Exmoor ponies, red deer and abundance of other species
