PLACES TO WANDER, PLACES TO ROAM

We carry a number of maps to browse, and to purchase at our farmhouse, and there are numerous local self guided trails on leaflets you can purchase or borrow whilst you are here.

ALLERFORD WOODS IN AUTUMN


SELWORTHY & SELWORTHY BEACON, BOSSINGTON BEACON & NORTH HILL

north-hill-heather


One of my favourite places for riding and walking - numerous trails and criss-crossing paths through the woods that the Acland's planted two hundred years agao, and out onto the moors of North Hill and Selworthy Beacon where you will undoubtedly see Exmoor ponies and birds of prey.

Walk P3: Selworthy-Selworthy Cross-Wind & Weather Shelter-Lady Acland's Hut (3½ miles) 

DUNKERY BEACON & WEBBER'S POST

Geoff Bannister has put together a number of walks in this beautiful area.  Dunkery is the highest point within the Exmoor National Park, and in a good summer is awash with purple heather.  Here you will see Exmoor ponies, possible red deer, and buzzards and peregrine falcons flying overhead.
