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

  • River Jelly Lichen
    Collema dichotomum is a nationally important species of aquatic lichen that is found in the fast flowing acidic waters of Exmoor's River Barle, which provide some of the UKs best sites for this interesting and unusual plant. More on this species from the Natural History Museum

Places of Interest

  • Watersmeet
    Watersmeet is a popular beauty spot at the junction of the East Lyn and Hoaroak Water. The rivers flow through deep wooded gorges with numerous footpaths and bridges, all well maintained by the National Trust. The gorge is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and there are rare ferns, flowers and trees.
