Exmoor 6 Day Cycle Tour

This holiday is open to proficient cyclists at any time, subject to availability.

Exmoor has some of the most dramatic and varied scenery in the west country, from
coastline to moorland and everything in between, and one of the best ways to see it is by cycle where you can stop and take in the scenery any time you wish, or perhaps dangle your feet in one of the beautiful streams that criss-cross the area.

With country lanes, challenging hill climbs and leisurely winding roads, this is a route not to be missed.
