3 Day Exmoor Explorer
If you haven't visited Exmoor before, you must. It is an absolute hidden gem that can rival anything the Lake District can offer you. Take our 3 day tour of Exmoor to see the best it has to offer from Dunkery Beacon and Tarr Steps to The Valley of the Rocks and the gorgeous villages of Lynton and Lynmouth.

Day 1 - DC to Wild Camping
Pick up your Defender Camper from us and briefly head South to join the North Devon Expressway. Before long you can be setting up at your first stop, the gorgeous Little Silver Stream Farm, where you can enjoy staying on a working farm where Roger and Emma will welcome you and advise you on the best wild camping areas.
Day 2 - Wild Camping to Star Gazing
You may be woken by a cockerel, but waking up at Little Silver stream is always gorgeous. After a nice breakfast, head over Exmoor towards the North Coast, making sure you stop at Tarr Steps (great 3 mile walk and pub) and take in the views at Dunkery Beacon (highest point on Exmoor) on the way. You'll arrive in plenty of time to set up at PoolBridge Campsite, the perfect Off grid spot with no signal and there are always campfires glowing. After a shower and dinner, sit around your own campfire and snuggle in for the evening to see the stars. Areas of Exmoor are designated a Dark Skies zone and if lucky, you'll likely catch a shooting star.
Day 3 - Villages and Coast
Enjoy a drive along the coast to the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth for a Devon cream tea and a ride on the unique funicular cliff top railway. From here you can head off to Caffyns Farm for stunning views across to the Welsh coast. Caffyns is a family run farm with a bar ;) and stunning views, perfect for the final night of your trip. From here, you can walk through their own orchards and down to The Valley of the Rocks and Lea Bay, where you may be lucky to spot seals and dolphins. Snuggle in by the fire for more star gazing and enjoy your last night on Exmoor.
