Day 2

After breakfast we enjoy a scenic journey around Exmoor National Park – the perfect introduction to the area! Throughout the day we will make stops in Simonsbath and Exford. These delightful villages lie in the heart of Exmoor’s moorland. We also visit Dunster, probably the largest and most intact medieval village in England! Dominated by Dunster Castle (whose origins go back 1,000 years), the town has a wealth of history to discover, including the remains of a Benedictine priory. We return to our hotel this afternoon via the charming fishing port of Lynmouth, explore its rows of charming fishing cottages and shops that cluster around the pretty harbour of gently bobbing boats.
