Despite being in the centre of the countryside, Withypool is surrounded by coastal areas only a short drive away. Take a boat trip from Lynmouth to Ilfracombe and experience the striking coastline and cliff formations for yourself. One of the best ways to explore this amazing countryside is Devon’s very own safari. Spot the wildlife of the moors from a Land Rover and fly over rolling hills and through valleys, all the while witnessing the extraordinary wildlife that Exmoor holds. Or instead plan a trip to the Exmoor Zoo and get to know all the animals from the tiniest monkey to the largest wild cat. Exmoor is perhaps best known for its giant Exmoor Beast. Visit one in the zoo and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. Withypool is so quaint and beautiful that it’s difficult not to fall for it in a heartbeat.
