Five top notch picnic spots around Exmoor and Somerset

It’s officially the end of winter, and that means only one thing- we have entered spring. This is good for a number of reasons, first of all it stays lighter for longer, the sun shines more, and the birds begin to sing. And after the recent unsavoury weather near our Somerset holiday cottages we can’t think of anything more delightful than taking a stroll through some of the country’s most scenic landscapes and enjoying a delightful picnic in these wonderful surroundings.

Here’s five of our favourite spots:

Staple Plain

The Quantocks is a superb area for picnicking that offers some excellent sites. There are picnic tables available in the area, alternatively you can take a walk on some of the tracks going over the hills and choose your own picnic spot that will provide exquisite views over the Bristol Channel or across Somerset.

Nutcombe Bottom, Nr Dunster

The area where you can park is part of the Crown Estate and this is where you will find some lovely picnic areas and plenty of walks from the car park that allow for you to find your own picnic area further afield. There is a nice easy walk to the Tall Trees Trail and this is where you will find the tallest tree in the British Isles.

Landacre Bridge, Nr Withypool

Landacre is a fantastic destination and from the bridge there are some perfect picnic spots that run along the river banks for all to enjoy. The Exmoor ponies and sheep are to thank for the well-kept river banks that make such excellent picnic areas. If you fancy Landacre but not the river bank you can go slightly further along the road to find small lay-bys and tracks offering similar picnic spots.

Porlock Hill

Porlock Hill offers breath-taking views and depending on where you choose to park you can expect to be wowed by views over Porlock Vale out over to Wales or inland across the rolling hills of the moor. Porlock Hill provides plenty of spots, which like Landacre Bridge, have been expertly grazed by the local Exmoor ponies, making it perfect for picnicking spots - maybe meeting the ponies too!

Doone Valley, Nr Lynmouth

Doone Valley has a path which runs in tandem beside the river, along the Doone Valley and this is where you’ll find a plethora of superb opportunities to sit and enjoy a picnic by the tranquil river. If you should run low on supplies then you can take a trip to Cloud Farm where they offer refreshments.
