Breathtaking views and a fantastic drive well worth it. Porlock hill and it's two vertical climbs with hairpin bends is seriously scary, as it was wet and rainy to boot. Apparently it's the UK's steepest road! I only came to know later that there is...More

We were so fortunate with the weather during our recent trip that undertaking the 21 mile drive really was a bit of a no-brainer! ... Safety first. It takes a skilled and confident driver to do the route; there are sheer drops next to narrow...More

Amazing coastline for driving and walking. Twin towns Lynton & Lynmouth are great for a relaxed wander and a bit of retail therapy. The Valley of the Rocks is unique and an easy walk from Lynton for the non-walkers - a small tarmac path with...More

A very nice drive with spectacular views. We thought it would be like Dartmoor with ocean views but it was unique unto itself. A must do while in Exmoor.

Relaxing way to explore the northwest part of Exmoor National Park. The map on the site was very useful but still requires some help from google map. We entered the park via Blackmoor Gate and went to Hunter's Inn. We hiked the Heddon's Mouth which...More
