Exmoor National Park lies in West Somerset and North Devon including a dramatic section of coast. Wild moorland dominates the high ground with Dunkery Beacon the highest point within the National Park. Wooded valleys or combes cut deep into this upland and provide another typical feature of the landscape. The coast includes some of the highest cliffs in the UK with easy access provided by the South West Coast National Trail. More Information
Somerset is a rural county in south-west England. The high land of the Blackdown Hills, Mendip Hills, Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, contrast with the wide expanses of flat wetland including the Somerset Levels. Adding interest to the landscape are the extensive network of caves and the Cheddar Gorge. Exmoor National Park crosses the border into neighbouring Devon and provides excellent walking. The highest point in Somerset is Dunkery Beacon on Exmoor, with an altitude of 519 metres (1,703 feet). The coast also offers great walking especially the section of South West Coast Path west of Minehead.
