Useful Walking links
West Country Walks is run by Bryan Cath which has a web site with over 100 downloadable self guided walks and cycle rides written by him covering North Devon and Exmoor.
The South West Coast Path Association is the user group for the coast path. It ensures the path is kept up to the standards of a National Trail and gives up to date information on the state of the path, cliff falls and diversions. A regular Newsletter is eagerly awaited by the membership which has over 5000 members. Please consider joining this friendly association if you are planning on walking any or all of the South West Coast Path.
The Coleridge Way is a fairly new long distance path starting in the Quantock Hills and ending in Exmoor. It passes through countryside that influenced Coleridge and Wordsworth in their poetry writing.
Active Exmoor gives all the information you could ever want on a wide range of activities happening on Exmoor.
The North Devon and Exmoor Walking Festival is probably the most scenic walking festival you could wish for. It started in 2000 and is now one of the larger walking festivals.
Exmoor National Park is one of the most delightful of the National Parks. It has the highest cliffs in the UK, open moorland, deep river valleys, pretty untouched villages and miles of perfect walking, horse riding and mountain biking country.
Dunster Castle overlooks the village and is owned by the National Trust. It can be visited and makes an excellent addition to a walk around the village taking in the church, dovecote, tithe barn, yarn market, the old mill and Gallox Bridge, an old pack horse bridge.
The West Somerset Railway is the longest heritage steam railway in England and is very much worth a trip. Dunster has a station on the line.
