Exmoor National Park

Exmoor National Park pictures. Exmoor is a national park on the Bristol Channel, an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean. These pictures were taken in and around the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth, the latter situated on the seaside while the former is on top of a steep hill right next to it, offering great views of the surrounding hills and cliffs.
