Tarr Steps, Exmoor

Tarr Steps

This is a picturesque spot in the River Barle which features a medieaval stone clapper bridge. The main car park is a 5 minute walk from the bridge but there is a disabled car park at the bridge itself. There is a  lovely circular walk through the woods which takes about an hour and a tea room with gardens.  Liscombe Farm  Ice-cream Parlour is just up the road and there you can sample local ice-cream while watching the robotic milking machine!

Winsford Hill & Exmoor Pony Centre

Take a walk on Winsford Hill and see the wild Exmoor ponies grazing freely. At the Dulverton end of the moor visit the The Exmoor Pony Centre, headquarters of The Moorland Mousie Trust, a charity that works tirelessly for the welfare and promotion of the rare breed Exmoor pony.

Dunster Castle

Dramatically sited on a wooded hill, Dunster Castle has been here since Norman times, with an impressive medieval gatehouse and ruined tower giving a reminder of its turbulent history. The castle became home for the Luttrell family, who lived there for 600 year before being donated to the National Trust. At the foot of the castle is the medieval village of Dunster with its many shops, restaurants and tea rooms which is well worth a visit. You can take a guided photo walk and learn about Dunster while also learning how to take better photographs
