Dunkery Beacon

Drive up onto Exmoor from Wheddon Cross and park at Dunkery Gate just as you get on National Trust land, then choose an open moorland walk to the top of Dunkery Beacon via a long or short route, where you will get a view over Porlock and across the Bristol Channel to Wales.

A very enjoyable walk and not to difficult. Well worth the effort, especially on a clear day. Pretty deserted in November but would imagine it gets quite busy in the summer months.

Well worth a visit and not too far to walk (you can choose long or short route!). Outstanding views right across to Wales on a clear day.

This is a good family friendly walk and due to this the summit can be quite busy on a summers day. Great views all around!

Great views

A relatively easy climb for all the family is rewarded with far reaching views on a clear day.
