Exmoor and the Quantock Hills form an outstanding and highly varied walking region in the south-west of England, bordering the Bristol Channel and extending about 15 miles inland.  The site covers the coast from Lilstock across to Mortehoe and Lundy and inland down to Bampton.

The aim of this site is to provide a comprehensive guide to walking in the region. The emphasis is on medium-length and longer walks (typically 6-12 miles), although there are a few shorter walks and plenty more included with the main walk descriptions as short-cuts and alternatives. The walk instructions are provided as PDF files that can each be printed on a double-sided sheet of A4 paper, or downloaded to a phone or tablet. 

Use the menu on the left to navigate the site. If you haven't visited before, be sure to read 'Introduction to the walks' and download the safety leaflet.
