Ce vei face

We meet at Lorna Doone Farm, with its ancient packhorse bridge and crossing ford, and walk up the Doone valley through pastures alongside the beautiful Badgeworthy water. You can visit the R.D.Blackmore memorial stone and try climbing up the infamous waterslide that John Ridd scaled to meet Lorna Doone. We then continue through the pages of the novel, finding the ruined medieval village where the outlawed Doone Clan hung out, and enjoying the spectacular scenery of this remote stretch of moorland. We will likely see Exmoor ponies, now an endangered rare breed,and will have a good chance of spotting Red deer, particularly splendid with full antlers, in the Autumn.
We will stop for lunch as John Ridd himself would have, in a sheltered combe, with homemade pasties just as he describes...."to hear (very wealthy boys and men) talk of it made my lips smack, and my ribs come inwards." A picnic with focaccia baked that morning, and produce from our farm and garden, will perk us up for the walk to Oare church along an ancient packhorse way.
We explore the church and see where poor Lorna was shot by the dastardly Carver Doone, then a short stroll back to the car.
Other things to note
You can choose the full experience of 15km as described, or we can plan an equally enjoyable half day, shorter walk of approx 7km , You can even walk somewhere else entirely, so long as it's Exmoor!

Hi! Malcolm and I have been walking on Exmoor for more than 14 years now.
We run Exmoor Experiences, where you have the opportunity to really get to know the best bits of the National Park, even if you only have a short time here. You can choose between a half or a full day's guided walk, on a circular route across the moors, along sheltered river valleys and through unique temperate rainforest.
Some of our walks follow in the footsteps of the literary greats , tracking down the views and landmarks that inspired works such as R.D. Blackmore's Lorna Doone and Coleridge's poem Kubla Khan.

Unde vei fi

We know the places that inspired the story of Lorna Doone, and will safely guide you over some pretty remote country, so that you can confidently enjoy this beautiful landscape.
Oare church is at least 800 years old, and mentioned in the Domesday book.There is a wealth of history within its ancient walls, which we will happily explain to you.

I haven’t read the book but that didn’t stop me enjoying every minute of the walk. Jennie is a tremendously knowledgable guide The lunch was superb - so many choices, even though I’m a vegetarian. The scenery was spectacular and wild. Just what I needed to blow away the cobwebs from the city.
