New Season's 'Exmoor Visitor' Out Now


Visitors to Exmoor this February half-term (15th-23rd February) are recommended to head to their nearest National Park Centre in Lynmouth, Dunster or Dulverton for a copy of this year’s Exmoor Visitor, the must-have annual guide to visiting the National Park.

The magazine is packed with things to see and do and is free to all visitors and local businesses, although donations to CareMoor for Exmoor are very welcome.

Rebecca Jackson, Manager at National Park Centre Lynmouth, said: “Pay us a visit and get insider knowledge from our friendly local staff, who will be only too pleased to share their passion for the area. Explore our interactive exhibits, watch a short film in our theatre or browse our extensive range of maps, gifts, local produce and free pocket guides.

“From birds, bugs and sea creatures to local history, we love having our knowledge tested and sharing our favourite places. And when people return to tell us about the wonderful experiences they’ve had, it makes our day!”

Opportunities for family fun this half-term include a visit to the magnificent carpet of flowers in Snowdrop Valley near Wheddon Cross, a chance to meet the ponies at the Exmoor Pony Centre’s family activity afternoon on 20th February and a mouth-watering menu of seasonally and locally produced food at Horner Farm’s Winter Feast on 22nd February. Or for other foodie events check out the Exmoor Food Fest throughout February.

Alternatively take the kids on a wild adventure to track down England’s Tallest Tree at Nutcombe Bottom, wrap up warm to summit Exmoor’s highest point at Dunkery Beacon, or rent a telescope from National Park Centres for a night out under the glittering stars (24-hire £25).

Dan James, Sustainable Economy Manager at Exmoor National Park, said: “As we start the tourism season Exmoor is preparing to welcome 2 million visitors. Our National Park Centres are a great first port of call to help them get the most from their visit and are also a hub for local businesses to pick up free literature and find out what’s coming up. Tourism providers on Exmoor are encouraged to attend Visit Exmoor’s Leaflet Exchange on 16th March at Dunster Tithe Barn, to stock up on leaflets and information ready for the season ahead.”
