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

  • Beech
    The beech tree Fagus sylvatica is a common site on Exmoor, where many were planted in the 19th century as hedges which are a key feature of the landscape today.  Exmoor is also home to the highest beech wood in the UK at birch Cleave, Simonsbath. More on this species from Woodland Trust
