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

  • County Gate
    Set on a windy ridge between the East Lyn valley and the Bristol Channel on the A39 between Devon and Somerset. The old gatehouse is now a Local Information Point and Cafe with car park and toilets. There are views to Doone Country and this is a good starting point for exploring that area or the Glenthorne Estate, with steep trails to a pinetum and stony beach with fascinating geology.
