Our second visit and on a perfect winter's day too. clear blue sky and sunshine casting a golden glow over the moor and hoar frost in the shadows.

As a kid I did the text Lorna Doone as part of my English literature. That was in 1963. I always promised myself to see this place one day. This is now fulfilled. Though a very small valley, it is a very interesting nature place right a the frontier between Somerset and Devon. We spent only half a day there.... More

The camp site is right by the river with fire pits marking pitches the ground is level and not too stoned the views from the campsite are lovely and there is a walk around the valley. It would have had five stars but for the knats/ midges in the evening.
