Our Habitats and Wildlife

  • Moorland

    Exmoor National Park was designated in recognition of the outstanding beauty, wildness and tranquillity of its moorland.
  • Farmland

    Farming over many generations has led to the intimate pattern of fields, moor and woods that make Exmoor National Park such a special place today.
  • Woodland

    Exmoor's woodlands are really special and they are home to many rare and unusual species of plants and animals.
  • Rivers and Streams

    Exmoor is a land of rivers. Clear, oxygen-rich waters such as the Exe, Barle and Lyn are home to some of our most important wildlife and have formed the deep Exmoor valleys known as combes.
  • The Coast

    Exmoor’s dramatic and inspiring coastline is where high cliffs tower over the Bristol Channel’s turbulent waters. You can explore it all on the South West Coast Path.
  • Red Deer

    Exmoor's iconic Red deer are Britain’s largest surviving land mammal and can be seen in many places across the National Park.
  • Exmoor Ponies

    The Exmoor Pony has been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years and is synonymous with our wonderful National Park.
