Exmoor National Park


Exmoor National Park is just a short car journey from Watchet, making Watchet an ideal place for your holiday base.

The National Park covers an area of 267 square miles. A unique and varied landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years.

Large areas of moorland provide a sense of remoteness and wilderness.

High cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel and the most spectacular views of the coast can be enjoyed along with amazing tree filled valleys.

Dotted with cosy pubs and tearooms, Exmoor hospitality offers delicious local produce and variety. Look out for Exmoor ponies and wandering sheep. Or treat yourself to an Ice cream from a van in a hill top car park!

On Exmoor it is still possible to find tranquility and peace as well as rediscover your sense of adventure; to catch a glimpse of wild red deer, be amazed by dark skies full of stars, and explore villages full of character.
