If you look closely at the names on the sign, you will see how easily it is to be spoilt for choice.  Exmoor is a very special place and whether you explore on foot or on four wheels, will never disappoint.

To some, Minehead has been ruined by a holiday camp built on its outskirts.  Now over 50 years old, the business brings revenue to the town - but at what price?  Personally I love Minehead.  It has second-hand book shops and even an old fishing village - if you're prepared to look for it.

Winsford is a delightful village, as I revealed on Day Two.  Politician Ernest Bevin was born in the village in 1881.  The house is easily spotted by a proud memorial that's affixed to its wall.

Just over the hill, within walking distance - but not without a steep climb! - and you're in Withypool.  Another small village, but it's here that RD Blackmore was thought to have penned Lorna Doone.

Each of the locations on that sign has a tale to tell.  Part of the fun of visiting the area is discovering those tales.  It doesn't matter which direction you choose - you will never make the wrong one.
