Business & Economy

Rural Enterprise Exmoor Logo

Exmoor National Park is a living, working, landscape. In addition to playing host to some of the country’s most spectacular landscapes it also hosts thousands of  businesses.

In pursuing National Park Purposes the National Park Authority has a duty to foster the social and economic well-being of local communities, whilst working alongside colleagues in Local Authorities who hold the economic development remit.

Vision and Networking Workshop
We are planning a Rural Enterprise Exmoor event, sponsored by Airband, on the 23 November 2021 from 3.30pm to 7pm at Knowle Manor. Find out more and register here.

We are very keen to encourage economic activity in the National Park which benefits from and enhances the local environment. This type of activity helps to make life in the National Park more sustainable. Examples of this could include:

  • Environmental technologies
  • Environmental land management
  • Traditional building restoration
  • Landscape enhancement
  • Sustainable tourism and leisure
  • Sustainable field sports
  • Local food and drink

If you have an idea for a project or business that could contribute towards developing our environmental economy, please contact the Rural Enterprise Team on 01398 323665 or email

Do follow and engage with us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram @RuralEntExmoor. There is also a closed facebook group that businesses can join to share and interact with each other.
