Hiking

Exmoor National Park has over 260 miles of footpaths and 400 miles of bridleways - so you are spoiled for choice. The landscape varies from deep wooded valleys to open moorland and spectacular coastal views over sea cliffs - higher than the white cliffs of Dover. Exmoor National Park is also a great location for enjoying the starry lit nights as here you can find some of the darkest skies in the UK.

The Old Stables is superbly located at the beginning of Britain's longest foot path - the 630-mile long South West Coastal Path from Minehead to Poole Harbour, Dorset. Several circular routes are available on the North Hill - next door to our establishment - which take you through beautiful woodlands and sea cliffs providing stunning views over the channel of Bristol.

Whether you wish to have a short walk through the nearby woodland or along the seaside, an hour's walk to the medieval village surrounding Dunster Castle, or a full-day trek through the dramatic route known as the 'rugged' coastal path to Porlock and back, we can provide you with information on popular routes at check-in. Local travel guide books will also be available in every room.
