At a glance

  • Exmoor National Park has been named Europe's first International Dark Sky Reserve. On a clear night many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye and even more can be discovered through a telescope. Telescopes are available to hire locally, and can be arranged ahead of your arrival.
  • Look up to the sky for a stargazing experience with a dark skies hamper including a blanket, star maps, flask of hot chocolate, selections of snacks and treats, then followed by piping hot soup on your return to the hotel
  • Hunters Inn is situated in the beautiful hills of Exmoor Park having over four acres for you to explore. Kick back and relax in the hotel’s restaurant with traditional home cooked dining and fresh local ingredients

Good to know

  • For beaches and secluded coves, take a short drive to Ilfracombe, a seaside resort on the North Devon coast with a small harbour and of course lots of traditional fish and chip shops
  • Hunter's Inn offers a seasonal menu prepared using local ingredients from Exmoor and the South West, alongside a range of home-brewed ales, a real treat after a day's walking in the national park
