Exmoor exploits

After lots of Christmas travelling, spending time with loved ones, and of course way too much food, we’ve finally paused for breath in Exmoor – the little patch of England my heart calls ‘home’. Don’t get me wrong, I love Hampshire, and I have travelled to some amazing places around the globe, but there is something about these deep valleys, undulating wooded hills and bracken-strewn moorlands, all conveniently packaged alongside stunning coastal views, that make Exmoor the most special place in the world for me.

We’ve rented a 1-bed cottage in Porlock for the week, we’ve got the walking boots and the mountain bikes, and the forecast is good. So follow our exploits on Exmoor, as we climb a few hills, follow a few rivers and indulge in some very special 15 minutes of green:
