Exmoor

Description

Exmoor National Park is located in southwest England, and is divided between the counties Somerset and Devon.

Exmoor is very different from the other main park in Devon: Dartmoor. Dartmoor is empty, infertile, very wet. Exmoor National Park on the other hand has a diverse nature, including farmlands, woods, small hamlets some of the wildest coastline in England, ánd moorland.
