Varied landscape of moorland, woods, farms and coast, rich in wildlife
Holnicote Estate makes up 12,000 acres of Exmoor National Park and is a contrasting landscape with everything from wild, rugged moorland and shingle beaches to ancient woodland and charming thatched villages.
A fantastic place for walking, horse riding and cycling, Holnicote has 150 miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore. Walk up to Dunkery Beacon, Somerset's highest point and a spectacular spot for stargazing, or take a more leisurely stroll and enjoy a picnic or BBQ at Bossington.
Red deer, Exmoor ponies, bats and the rare heath fritillary butterfly along with an awesome array of lichens and mosses make Holnicote a unique and very special place to visit.
Selworthy Green is an ideal place to begin with information on walks and other activities available from Selworthy shop. You can also pop into the nearby Periwinkle tearoom for a cream tea to set you up before exploring.
