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.
The Exmoor is a unique breed of pony which has lived on the moor longer than people have. It is important because it is the nearest breed we have to the original wild horses of Europe. It has evolved in response to its environment, becoming hardy and resilient to the cold and wet. More info on Exmoor Ponies.
Luxborough is a scattered village with pub, church and car park. It is a good centre for exploring the forested parts of the Brendon Hills, with walks over the Chargot estate to Kennisham, over Croydon Hill to the deserted village of Clicket, or across the open heaths of Withycombe and Rodhuish Commons.
