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

  • Red deer

    Red deer are the largest wild land animals in England. Adult stags stand about 115 cm at the shoulder. Hinds are about 15 cm less. Only stags grow antlers. They shed them in April and early May and new ones start to grow immediately. As the stag gets older the antlers have more 'points' until they reach old age and start to 'go back'. More on this species

Places of Interest

  • North Hill
    North Hill overlooks Minehead, with superb views across the Bristol Channel. The coastal heath is a blaze of colour in August. At Moor Wood are the remains of a World War II tank training ground and radar station. Here also is a car park, picnic area and the starting point for numerous walks.
