Welcome to Exmoor National Park

Situated in the south west of Britain, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles (692 square kilometers). A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Where high cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel, and cosy pubs and tearooms offer delicious local produce.

Exmoor’s Biodiversity

  • Sessile Oak
    The wildlife-rich woodlands that are such an important feature of Exmoor's valleys and coast are often dominated by sessile oak quercus petraea. Oak supports more species of insect than any other native tree and Exmoor's and our Oak woodlands are  particularly important for the rare lichens that are found there. More on this species from The Woodland trust

Places of Interest

  • The Brendon Hills
    Here are remains of the once prosperous iron mining industry, including a miners' chapel at Beulah and ruins of mines, cottages and the steep mineral railway incline running down to Comberow. Car parking is at a lay-by near Raleigh's Cross and it is necessary to explore on foot. Access to Burrow Farm engine house is from near the Naked Boy prehistoric standing stone along the edge of the track bed of the former mineral railway.
