Dulverton by Starlight – Sunday, 1 December 2020

Dulverton by Starlight is a magical event held every year, open to all. Every December the pretty Exmoor town of Dulverton is decorated with Christmas trees festooned with lights, and for one Sunday all of the shops are open for people to do some local Christmas shopping.  Festivities take place all afternoon and into the evening. Dulverton has a wealth of independent shops, businesses, organisations, restaurants, takeaways, pubs, cafes and tea rooms all of whom help to make this a special place to visit not just for Starlight but all year round.

 

Discover Exmoor with Jack

“Some epic downpours today on Exmoor. Jack is going to start gentle walks again over the next few days to see how he progresses. These pictures were from this morning on a drive across Molland and Anstey Commons. Beautiful colours of Autumn starting to show and dramatic skies.”

Date for the Diary: Halloween is coming….

Hallowe’en is coming….

Hitch a ride with us from Minehead…. into the deepest Exmoor, where mists rise from the valleys and ghosts linger behind trees. Bring a torch, and at the end of the path a totally gruesome dinner awaits you… but there might be other guests…. you will hear them… you will feel them… can you see them?
Will you be brave enough?

Join us for a totally gruesome Hallowe’en experience, served up with a delicious 3-course-dinner in one of Exmoor’s most picturesque settings. It’s all happening on 28 October 2017, starting at 6.30pm in Minehead….

A gallery of happy dogs on Exmoor

As Wednesdays are also known as #WoofWoofWednesday on Twitter we asked our wonderful Exmoor4all community to share photos of their dogs enjoying Exmoor.  It didn’t take long (30 seconds I think!) before the first photo appeared in the comments, swiftly followed by another 120.

So here is the beautiful collection of happy dogs on Exmoor:

#MotivationalMonday: How a local group raised £3000 for charity

A group of friends took on a major challenge last year:  They  wanted to raise money for Wooden Spoon, a Rugby based charity which raises money for disabled and disadvantaged children.

Based on Exmoor, they decided to walk the South West Coast Path from Combe Martin to Minehead. And so they did: 36 miles in 11 hours it took them! The best bit:  They raised £3000.00 for the charity!

“It’s the most stunning part of the Coast Path, and as we are all Exmoor based, it felt so fantastic to complete our challenge.”
David Dunster

 

Here is some background info on Wooden Spoon:

“Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. From sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds and sports activity areas to respite, medical and community care, we fund around 70 projects each year that support disadvantaged and disabled children. Since our founding in 1983, we’ve distributed in excess of £24 million, helping over 1 million young people.”
