Covering 267 square miles, Exmoor offers a wealth of walking trails, meaning that during your holiday you won’t have to cover the same ground twice! Wildlife, too, is in abundance across the moors.

For this reason, there are some areas, particularly those inhabited by livestock, where dogs must be kept on leads.
Walkers of the South West Coast Path have voted Heddons Mouth in Exmoor National Park as the top dog walk in the West, thanks to the rugged scenery, breathtaking views and mix of woodland, moorland and beach. It’ll be hard to tell who enjoys it more, you or your dog!

With so many options for owners and their pets, wherever on the moors you decide to spend your day, there will be somewhere warm and welcoming where you can enjoy a hearty meal and a pint.
