Autumn has nearly arrived at The Exmoor Centre. There were the first signs of some leaves changing colour this week. Before long the valleys will echo to the sound of Stags belving (bolving/roaring/making a God awful racket!) and the morning will be crisp and frosty.
We get frost at the bunkhouse over 7 months of the year. No wonder the river is bracing to swim in even in summer.
The times when the centre was only used in summer are long gone. Outdoor clothing is so good now its no real hardship to explore the moor at any time of the year. We have a huge covered drying area at the centre and the woodburner makes the bunkhouse cozy on even the coldest days.
Another advantage of the shortening days are longer nights and more chances to experience the amazing dark skies that have earn’t Exmoor status as Europes first Dark Skies Reserve. The bunkhouse is one of the only places on the moor that you can stay within the darkest area of the moor. Our campfire is an excellent observatory to watch satellites race overhead.
There are still some spare weekends left that you can book this year and plenty of weekday slots for school groups or those lucky enough to escape work.
