This area of hilly open moorland covering 692.8 km² (267.5 sq mi) was originally a former 13th century royal hunting forest. The National Park supports Ancient woodland, lowland heath communities and blanket mire with some rare flora and fauna alongside the remains of iron age and bronze age standing stones, cairns and bridges.

Exmoor has over 55 km (34 mi) of coastline that includes the highest sea cliff on mainland Britain, Great Hangman near Combe Martin some 318 m (1,043 ft) high.

The principal settlements are: Dulverton, Exford, Lynton, Porlock, Simonsbath, Luxborough, Lynmouth, Wheddon Cross and Withypool.

Alongside sheep, cattle, Exmoor ponies and red deer, there have been reports of a long-since-thought-extinct type of cat roaming Exmoor called 'The Beast of Exmoor', so keep your eyes peeled.

There are 6 'tops' to walk up, bag and conquer, the highest point is Dunkery Beacon and the area includes:

0 Wainwrights
0 Mountains (aka Hewitts)
1 Dewey
0 Nuttalls
0 Wainwright Outlying Fells
