Enjoying Exmoor's Woodlands

There are over 9,000 ha of woodlands to be explored in Exmoor National Park. Full of nature, heritage and scientific interest, there is something to delight everyone. The woodlands are scattered across the park, often in deep valleys, or along the steep coastal cliffs. Many of the woodlands are accessible on public rights of way, and include some of the long distance walking routes, such as the South West Coast Path and the Coleridge Way. 

We own a number of woodlands within the park, which are ready to be explored. There are several other organisations which look after some of the largest blocks of woodland on Exmoor. These organisations include:

The National Trust own some woodlands near Porlock such as the National Nature Reserve of Horner Wood, as well as woodlands near Lynton and Lynmouth such as at Watersmeet and Hunter's Inn.

The Forestry Commission manage large areas of mostly coniferous woodland such as Croydon Hill near Timberscombe and Chargot Wood near Luxborough.
