The history of Exmoor is fascinating, stretching back to the Mesolithic era. Look with a keen eye across the land and you will see the way it archives its history; historical monuments remain untouched, and many more are believed to be undiscovered, making Exmoor the perfect place for any budding archaeologists. To explore more for yourself, you can visit old iron age fort, Cow Castle, a short walk from the village centre. To learn more about the wildlife of Exford, you can spend a day at the Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre, sure to be a real treat for the kids as they see these magnificent birds up close. Exmoor Falconry and Animal Park provides the same, including a lovely tea room, and any who love horse riding will be thrilled to know that the Animal Park offers that, too.
The Coleridge Bridle Way is another perfect area for horse riding, connecting the beautiful Quantock Hills to Exmoor, meaning you can ride along and take in the views from horseback. If walking is what you prefer, the Exe Valley way takes you along the river Exe – but be aware, it’s fifty miles in length! If you would rather be guided, the Exmoor Society is on hand, with seasoned walkers willing and happy to share their area’s history. For a holiday you will never forget, come to magical Exford.
