So many people who live here don’t know what they have on their doorstep, not us though, any excuse for an adventure out on the moor. I’d arranged to meet some people at The Exmoor Centre last weekend, we hadn’t set an exact time so when they weren’t there me and my terrier set off for an trot up the valley.

About 45minutes walk up the valley to the south of The Exmoor Centre is Hoaroak Cottage, home to some ancestors of mine in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Its a fascinating place and well worth a visit if you are on Exmoor and are capable of the walk over rough ground to get there. Avoid it in poor weather though, its a bleak place at times and all too easy to lose your bearings when the moorland mists set in.
