Rainy Days

Banish the Blues!

Getting caught in the rain while out walking is part of the experience and often makes for a memorable walk. Getting back to a warm sofa and a hot drink is all part of the joy of getting soaked!  So pull on your wellies and wrap up in waterproofs and see Minehead and Exmoor at it's atmospheric best!

As the saying goes, ‘There is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.’

See our short walks for ideas.

For those that want to ensure they remain (relatively!) dry then here are some suggestions:
