Every footstep at Exmoor is rewarded with an astonishing range of landscapes and moods to enjoy. Features of the park include the vibrant yellow gorse, purple heather, wild ponies and Red Deer. The three daily walks, which range from easy (6.5km) to challenging (15km), are accompanied by experienced leaders who bring classic routes and offbeat areas to life as we explore Exmoor. In the evenings we’ll enjoy the character and charm of our hotel where we can relax and re-live the days adventures.
The last weekend of our holiday is devoted to soothing our minds and nurturing our bodies as we enjoy a variety of well-being sessions led by professional instructors. Each day we will have the opportunity to participate in various activities such as yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi, Mindfulness Meditation and guided walks.
Our 10 nights in Exmoor are spent near the attractive village of Selworthy, in the heart of Exmoor National Park, at the historic Holnicote House. The hotel, which stands in the midst of a series of peaceful gardens with extensive lawns, was once the centrepiece of an extensive 12,500-acre estate. The charming and characterful house was gifted to the National Trust in 1944, and since then it has been re-imagined as a walkers’ retreat, with wonderful access to the countryside.
