Exmoor & North Devon is the perfect escape for those interested in scenery and landscapes. We can stop by Dulverton, the setting of part of Blackmore’s classic novel ‘Lorna Doone’; the Castle at Dunster, which stands guard over the town’s medieval buildings; the busy village and port of Porlock, with its stunning views; explore the historic and remarkable Tarr Steps; the picturesque twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth known as‘Little Switzerland’, which will allure you and astonish you with its ingenious water-powered cliff railway which effortlessly transports visitors up the 500 foot cliff and we will certainly take a ride on it.
The Exmoor National Park itself is a truly breath-taking area to explore, high sea cliffs and rolling moorland, ancient farmland, and deep wooded valleys. If you are looking for a peaceful escape, Exmoor’s vistas, wonderful wildlife and system of walking trails will help you get away from it all.
The famous garden of RHS Rosemoor is a must for any garden fan, for those looking to hike then take on the Valley of the Rocks which was formed many thousands of years ago during the last Ice Age.
Two places we must see are Ilfracombe a gorgeous seaside town, witness the iconic Damien Hirst statue called ‘Verity’ and take in a cream tea overlooking the gorgeous views. One of our favourite places in England to visit is Clovelly, it clings to a 400-foot cliff, there is no vehicular traffic on its steeply cobbled street, just donkeys and sledges. It is a beautiful picturesque fishing village, steeped in maritime history and was once owned by the Queen of England. The working harbour, with its 14th century quay, is another scene to be captured as a treasured memory. Visiting Clovelly is an extraordinary experience to remember! Exmoor & North Devon has so much to offer for all interests!
Cornwall and Devon is truly a very special place, from the historic sites we saw like the Mayflower launch, King Arthur’s Castle, Rick Stein’s seafood restaurant, the famous scenes where Poldark was shot and even a sheepdog demonstration on the cliffs, this was one of my favourite vacations ever. Eddie and his team put together and delivered 5 days I will never forget!
