Dunkery Beacon is the highest point on Exmoor. On a clear day you can see all the way over to the Brecon Beacons in Wales and to Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.
On the summit are numerous Bronze Age burial mounds.
This woodland is full of ancient trees, and there are many footpaths for you to explore.
It's the perfect place to enjoy a walk with the family along the river bank.
This is a spectacular viewpoint on the hillside above the Horner Valley. From here you can begin a walk to Dunkery Beacon, or down into Horner Woods.
There is also an easy access trail offering magnificent views.
Begin your exploration of the woods from Selworthy village green.
Don’t miss the fascinating stone memorial hut, inscribed with verse, which commemorates Sir Thomas Dyke Acland, the 10th Baronet.
He planted the woods here from 1802 onwards, adding a block for each of his nine children.
A fun, new outdoor challenge
There are lots of ways to get involved with cycling on Exmoor. Hire, or bring your own bike. Why not cycle around the villages, stopping off at Selworthy tea-room.
Take part in the Exmoor Beast challenge in October.
