Convenient location and well laid out information centre for Exmoor. Very friendly and helpful staff. We picked up some useful information leaflets and ideas, if the weather had been better there were a lot of good walking maps available.

Various interactive displays to keep little people interested. Worth...More

Always an enjoyable visit. New things to look at with a rewarding cake. Can't think of a better place to sit and watch the sea when it's raining. Lovely garden when it's sunny.
