Jenny Welcome to this week’s British Breaks. Today we are looking at outdoor
holidays in the southwest of England. First, we go to Tom reporting from
Exmoor National Park in North Devon. Over to you, Tom.
Tom Thank you, Jenny. Here I am in Exmoor National Park. I’m standing in a
beautiful valley, beside a river. There are green hills all around. I’m all alone. I
can’t see anyone. I can only hear the water. It is very calm and quiet. This is very
unusual in southern England! Exmoor is an amazing place. And there are so
many ways to enjoy it. I’m staying here for a few days to explore the park, and
here are my suggestions so far
First of all – walking. Exmoor is the perfect place to go walking. There are over
1,000 kilometres of walks through woods and valleys, beside lakes, and along
beaches. The best thing is that it’s free – you just need to bring strong walking
shoes and lots of water to drink. The Exmoor National Park website has a
fantastic list of guided walks.
Exmoor is also great for cycling. There are lots of cycling maps for easy and
more difficult routes. There are also many organised cycling groups that you
can join. Just remember to ride slowly because of walkers and horses!
And finally, climbing. I went climbing for the first time yesterday and it was a
great experience. There are a number of outdoor centres in the national park.
Their climbing instructors can help you to climb if you are a beginner like me,
or to improve your climbing skills. You have to follow all the safety advice and
learn to use the equipment, but it’s exciting! Exmoor is perfect for climbers. It
has some of the highest sea cliffs for climbing in the UK.
So, there is something for everyone. It’s really beautiful here and I can
recommend it for all the family! Back to you in the studio, Jenny.
