Such outstanding surroundings make outdoor pursuits an absolute
joy, whether you're after non-stop adventure or gentle
exercise. There's walking, of course, and superb riding from
tranquil hacks along forest trails to serious gallops in wide open
spaces. Enjoy family bike rides on easy green trails or take a spin
down high-speed black routes - for those passionate mountain bikers
out there. Wimbleball Lake is the perfect spot for canoeing, dinghy
sailing and fly-fishing. Or find yourself a quiet riverbank and
fish for salmon and trout. Play golf? Day visitors are welcome at
the Minehead & West Somerset Golf Club, offering both links and
parkland course features.
What else? Historic houses, museums, galleries, steam trains,
Exmoor Zoo, the Exmoor Pony Centre and more. Soak up rural life at
village fetes and country shows. Enjoy a pint with the locals in
one of the many traditional inns. Or do something different and
join a wildlife safari, spotting the elusive red deer and the
gorgeous Exmoor Pony.
Wherever you go, whatever you do, a holiday in an Exmoor cottage
will linger long in the memory!
