Exmoor Safari – Rutting Season is Here….

With a what seemed like a slow start to the rutting season there were a number of fine days to view the spectacular displays of supremacy with the boisterous roar of stags on Exmoor, heavy fog disappointed some Exmoor Safari goers but in true Exmoor style once the fog lifted there was many fine beast to be seen and some of the largest stags were proudly defending their herds of hinds.

It could easily be said that autumn is the best time of year to see traditional fayre custom and celebration, autumn is by far the busiest time for festivals and jollifications on Exmoor.

Lovers of the great outdoors can join one of our guided walks with our knowledgeable guide Richard or grab a map and directions and explore Exmoor at its best, why not take a packed lunch and wander the eastern margins of the region during the Quantock fringes walking festival.

Foodies are spoiled for choice between october’s Exmoor food festival and Porlock food fayre, while apples – the West Country’s fruit of choice – are celebrated in all their glory, from chutney to cider, at Apple Days held at such delightful locations as Carhampton and Cleeve Abbey near Watchet.

Add the colourful displays of Dulverton Carnival, spooky Halloween business at Dunster Castle, the stirring music always on offer at the two moors festival – it’s easy to see why autumn is many people’s favourite season on Exmoor.
