Sunlight shining through woodland scenery

Take in the views over Exmouth at Kenton Common, part of Haldon Forest, south of Exeter.

The nearby village of Kenton boasts a beautiful 14th century church, built in the traditional Devonian style. Go for a woodland walk at Kenton Common and nip into the village for a bite to eat at the pub, and admire the historic church. Treat your four legged friend to their own adventure and bring them along for the fun as well! 

Child happily play running through grass

West of Exeter, Chalet provides a range of forest paths for you to explore, through gorse and heath as well as conifers and broad-leaved trees. The area is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the diversity of plant and animal life here. Bring your binoculars and see what you can spot, maybe you'll catch a glimpse of the elusive nightjar.

Family walking on gravel path through forest

With a variety of trees, beautiful scenery and gravel paths, Dawlish Waterworks provides the perfect setting for a day in the great outdoors. Keep your eyes and ears sharp as there are lots of opportunities for nature watching.  

Extend your forest adventure at the nearby Mamhead and Haldon Forest Park!
