North Devon Treasure Hunt
We loved doing this downloadable Treasure Hunt because not only is it great fun but you also get a really good overview of Exmoor and North Devon. There is even a clue in our very own church, right next door!
Explore hidden Exmoor on Safari in a top of the range Discovery4
Like ourselves, Experience Exmoor are National Trust Partners and are exclusively licensed to explore National Trust Land
A unique zoo, combining a relaxed and informal atmosphere with many of the birds and animals at liberty within the grounds
Lynton & Barnstaple Railway
Visit the legendary Lynton & Barnstaple railway at Woody Bay Station. A mile of the original route has been reopened with steam train services. The route offers stunning views of the Bristol Channel. You can alight at Killington Lane and return to Woody Bay.
West Somerset Railway
Enjoy a steam or diesel train ride through 22 miles of stunning Somerset Coast and Countryside. Take a step back in time enjoying views of the Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park and the West Somerset coastline.
Visit the cobbled, traffic-free, high street of this world famous fishing village in North Devon, built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff, tumbles its way down past whitewashed cottages festooned with flowers to the tiny working port.
Wild, beautiful and untouched. The entire Peninsula is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
