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 Barn Owl Tyto alba is one of our best loved native birds, and can be seen on Exmoor hunting its prey of voles and other small mammals over meadows and rough pasture. it needs both good hunting grounds and suitable nest sites, such as old farm buildings to thrive. More on this species from RSPB.
- Webber's Post
Named after a huntsman and once a meeting point for staghounds, Webber's Post is now a popular car park and viewpoint. There are views over Horner Woods to Cloutsham and Dunkery. The National Trust has provided a wheelchair trail through self-seeded pine trees on the ridge alongside the East Water valley.
