Visiting coast and countryside in the South West: what you need to know 

We look forward to welcoming you to the coast and countryside around the South West. We care for beautiful countryside, from Cornwall's sandy beaches to Dorset's heathland, and you can help us to keep them safe and enjoyable by following a few simple guidelines during your visit and observing the Countryside Code.

Selworthy is a good place to start discovering the wonderfully varied Exmoor landscapes within the 4,856-hectare (12,000-acre) Holnicote Estate. This is a timeless rural landscape of thatched cottages, a fine medieval church, walks through wooded combes and sweeping views across the vale to Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor's highest point.
