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

  • Nightjar
    The nightjar Caprimulgus europaeus is a nocturnal summer visitor to Exmoor from sub-Saharan Africa, most often detected by the churring call of the male on summer nights. It occurs on rough heathland fringes where there is a mosaic of heathland, bracken and scrub. It also inhabits large clearfells on areas of former heathland. More on this species from RSPB

Places of Interest

  • Bridgetown
    Bridgetown is a hamlet alongside the River Exe on the A369, which includes an old mill, packhorse bridge and a cricket pitch with a thatched pavilion. A peaceful walk leads along the river towards Winsford. Parking is in a lay-by from which a bridge crosses to the cricket pitch. There is a pub and rock faces carved with the dates when the turnpike was cut along the valley in the 1820s.
