WILDABOUTEXMOOR

Wildaboutexmoor was started by husband and wife team Jennie and Malcolm Wild in 2015 in response to conversations that we were having in our local teashops and pubs….Visitors to Exmoor were really struggling to find the best places to walk.. Once we got chatting we realised that the best way of enjoying the area safely, especially in your first visit, was to join us for a guided walk.

Wildaboutexmoor was started by husband and wife team Jennie and Malcolm Wild in 2015 in response to conversations that we were having in our local teashops and pubs….Visitors to Exmoor were really struggling to find the best places to walk.
