In just 694 square kilometres Exmoor, designated in 1954, offers a vast diversity of landscapes as the moorlands give way to the sea with some of the highest cliffs in England. The moorland landscape is different from that of Dartmoor’s granite heights: softer, more rounded hills support a patchwork of small hedged fields and wooded combes. Exmoor is Europe’s first International Dark Sky Reserve and is a great place to view wildlife.
