To the north and north-east of North Devon is Exmoor National Park, a stunning open moorland which covers a large part of the region. With beautiful landscapes, dramatic coastline and peace and tranquillity not found in many other places, Exmoor has grown into one of the most loved National Parks in the country. Home to the rare Exmoor Pony, the park is a firm favourite with visitors looking to stay in cottages in Exmoor.
Why visit Exmoor?
One word; beauty. Exmoor is one of the most beautiful places in the South West. Inland you will find uninhabited moorland stretching out in every direction. Along the coast is equally as pretty, with places like the Valley of Rocks demonstrating the dramatic beauty of this area.
