Guest Blog: Experience Exmoor


Simply the best!

Created: 15/01/2013 – 01:20 pm

We are over the moon! Our beloved Exmoor National Park has just been voted the most favourite national park in the UK. Over a period of five months BBC viewers had the opportunity to vote online for one of the 15 contenders. Although it is one of the smallest areas, Exmoor received a staggering 36% of the votes, making it tower head and shoulders above the others.

What a delightful outcome!

The fifteen members of the National Parks family each stand out in their own way. We are lucky to have so many beautiful areas of protected countryside in Britain, and to choose one as the favourite is not an easy task. That is why receiving the first place feels pretty amazing.

Of course we are hoping that the result will create more Exmoor awareness and bring extra tourists to this part of the UK. But, thinking business aside, we are simply happy with the recognition because the Exmoor National Park is truly one of the most magical and inspiring places we know. On our safari trips we often have guests who cannot believe that they travelled far and away to so-called dream destinations, while all the while they were not aware of the mind-blowing landscapes and scenery, the wonderful wildlife and the fascinating evidence of the past that awaited them here, almost on their doorstep.

Exmoor – it’s simply the best!
