Join a National Park Ranger on a guided walk to learn more about the area and the stars in this fantastic location on the north coast of Exmoor.
Numbers will be limited to approx 25 so there’s plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the walk safely. Hear from our Ranger Charlotte Wray about her love of moths and why they’re important to the environment.
Learn how to set up your own moth trap and identify different species. Weather permitting, assistance with stargazing will be available from Exmoor Stargazers. Prior booking required.
