Enjoy Family Favourites
Top Family Experiences
There is so much to see and do across Somerset & Exmoor. Here are some of the more unusual ways to experience the great outdoors as a family this summer.
1. Meet an Exmoor Pony
The Exmoor Pony is one of Britain’s oldest native breeds of horse, as well as being one of the cutest! You can meet and even ride an Exmoor Pony at the Exmoor Pony Centre. There are also ponies on the Quantock Hills.
2. Discover a Watery Underworld!
With the second highest tidal range in the world, the Somerset coast provides fantastic opportunities for rock pooling. Watch our video on how best to discover this water underworld.
4. Go lake-side
From den building and grass whistling to stick trails and animal tracking, there are as many exciting things to do by fresh water as by the sea. Download the South West Lakes guide for some great outdoor ideas.
5. Try birding
The RSPB has half a dozen reserves in the County which is one of the top places in the UK for birding. There are plenty of volunteers to help with identification of birds and loads of activities just for kids.
