Walking in Exmoor, North Devon | Autumn and Winter

by / Friday, 16 December 2016 / Published in blog

Until moving to North Devon in Exmoor I’d never witnessed such dramatic changes in weather and vista.  In just three months we’ve experienced everything from blistering hot sun, cobalt blue skies to inches of hail and 60mph winds.  The flora has changed from vivid green, through orange to red to silver and through all of this – Lynton and Lynmouth remains breathtaking and ideal for walking.

The Valley of Rocks is short walk [of several] from Highcliffe House.  The most dramatic walk being the upper cliff path across Hollerday Hill.  The drop to the sea is rather unnerving but the views over the Bristol Channel towards South Wales and The Mumbles is quite simply stunning.

The Exmoor National Park is such an awe inspiring place. Neal and I are still in disbelief that we now live here.  We’ve both said on several occasions that it feels like we’re on the perfect city break and at any moment we will be heading back to London.

There are so many places for walking and exploring in Exmoor.  And luckily we’re not destined to return to London – we’ve plenty of time to enjoy them.
