Exmoor is one of the secret gems of the south-west. Beautiful, wild moorland (made famous by a novel about Lorna Doone) meets the stunning North Devon coast with it's series of footpaths, woodland and villages. Our base is the fishing village of Lynmouth, renowned for the flood disaster of 1952 when the same amount of water that flows down the River Thames in a year came tumbling from Exmoor in 24 hours, down through Watersmeet and swept the village away. Your expedition will take you through lots of different landscapes, so if variety is what you're after without having to climb any big hills then Exmoor is the perfect choice: you'll pass through old oak woodland, open moors via the Two Moors Way, around headlands overlooking the sea and end in Lynton for ice creams and a short ride down the cliff railway (a water-powered funicular) to the beach at Lynmouth, perfect!
