Things to do - Devon

Exmoor National Park is situated in the counties of Devon and Somerset in South West England. The park contains a variety of magnificent landscapes. Although it is one of the smaller National Parks the central plateau of open moorland is remote and spacious. To the north the moorland terminates in towering cliffs above the Bristol Channel. Rocky headlands, steep wooded ravines, plunging waterfalls and jumbled heaps of fallen rock make this an area of outstanding scenic beauty; it is defined as a Heritage Coast. Dartmoor was designated as a National Parks in 1951. It is a beautiful moorland landscape with wooded valleys and wind swept Tors. The land, some 368 square miles in area, is all owned by someone and the public is able to roam freely on unenclosed, open moorland on both foot and horseback. There are also about 600 miles of public rights of way. Dartmoor is a rich habitat for wildlife and has a wealth of archaeological remains. When all of your visiting is done, make time for the famous Devonshire Teas, (scones, butter, jam and the main ingrediant, cream).
