COVID-19 Advice

The government is asking people to stay at home and only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work. People should not travel to the National Park for recreational reasons. Finding ways to get exercise near where you live will help stop the spread.

Visiting Tarr Steps

Whether you are an experienced walker or someone who prefers a short stroll, Tarr Steps is a great place to go when looking to explore Exmoor National Park. You can head straight there, utilising the on site car park and toilet facilities, with just a gentle walk down to the ancient clapper bridge. The beautiful wooded valley of the River Barle is also worth exploring for its wildlife, as is the heathland of Winsford Hill and its wild ponies in the surrounding countryside. For a short circular walk from the bridge just follow the orange way marks. There is also a more challenging circular walk from Dulverton to Tarr Steps.


More than just the bridge
