Stay home. Save Lives

No results were found

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday 23 March 2020, you should not be travelling to Exmoor National Park.

You should stay at home – as set out by Government:  

  • Only go outside for food, medical reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

The Government have clarified that you should not be travelling to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar. Wild camping and roadside overnight stays in any vehicle are not permitted in the National Park.

Our car parks, toilets and visitor centres are now closed.

If you travel to visit the National Park you are putting the lives of our communities at risk and additional pressure on our health and other local services.

Government guidance is that you are allowed one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household.  You should do this from your home in the best way you can.

We look forward to welcoming you back when this pandemic is over. Until then we hope you understand our National Parks are living, working landscapes: the home to thousands of people and the factory floor for many farmers.  Please think of them and the pressure you can inadvertently place on local services.
