The Tarka Line runs between Exeter and Barnstaple, which is linked by bus services into Exmoor.

Getting around Exmoor National Park

Much of the national park is serviced by a comprehensive bus network. You don't even have to make it to a bus stop to catch a ride – you can flag down a bus wherever you are. Dogs are welcome onboard for a small additional charge.

The 'on demand' bus service – Moor Rover – operates throughout the year, from 8am-8pm, seven days a week (but weekends must be booked in advance). Dogs and bikes can be carried for an additional charge, and using the service as a group can be particularly cost effective.

Of course, the most sustainable option is the fuel-less one, and there hundreds of miles of walking, cycling and riding routes throughout the region.
