November 23-25 Exmoor National Park

  • Nov 23, 2012 · 6:00 PM

Exact address and directions will be sent later.

Stunning landscapes, wilderness and tranquility, rare in southern England, and a warm rural welcome await you on Exmoor, one of Britain's breathing places; and the glimpse of wild Red Deer or the native Exmoor Pony, are just a couple of the delights that make Exmoor special.

We are going to explore the river Exe part of Exmoor for the first time as well as stay in the new for AAA hostel!


Exmoor whatever time of year you visit you are sure to experience the full extent of Exmoor's beauty.

Situated in the south west of Britain, Exmoor National Park contains an amazing variety of landscapes within its 267 square miles. A unique landscape of moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland, shaped by people and nature over thousands of years. Where high cliffs plunge into the Bristol Channel, and cosy pubs and tearooms offer delicious local produce.

Steeped in history Exmoor area covers a wide range of places to visit from Combe Martin in North Devon along the spectacular coastline of Exmoor National Park, across the Quantock Hills to the tip of West Somerset and inland to rural villages and acres of open space, from rugged moorland to wooded valleys. It's all dotted with pretty villages where you'll find a friendly welcome.

Accommodation

We booked 3 star high quality hostel accommodation just for our group,

A refurbished Victorian house with timber features, this building stands in its own wooded grounds in the centre of the village, with two great pubs, next to the banks of the unfenced River Exe and in the heart of Exmoor National Park.

You may even be lucky enough to spot a red deer near by.

Most of the rooms are for 4 people each!

Price includes:

2 nights accommodation,

guided hikes by Mountain Leader trained at Plas Y Brenin ( The National Mountain Centre http://www.pyb.co.uk/... ) guide, and certified First Aider

and all meals

(AAA aims for home-made healthy food, catered for vegetarians, vegans and anybody else. Meat we use for our meals is always Halal)

but NOT transport.

    I am impressed by brave and tough AAA members who can hike in any weather! Well done, Guys. It was good to come back in a warm and cosy hostel to enjoy a company of very friendly and helpful people. Amazing and challenging coastal hike in dry weather on Sunday!

    Guys,
    If you haven't seen the weather reports in the news I suggest you make sure you pack your gaiters and waterproof trousers as well as the normal kit.
    You should expect it to be very wet under foot.

    See you there.
