If you are looking for fun times and adventure this summer, then Exmoor will not disappoint. Why not visit Bogtastic, the South West’s largest bog festival which takes place on 26th July? Alternatively the Exmoor Pony Centre is hosting a 10th birthday celebration on 24th July. 

More about ‘Bogtastic'!

Held during UK National Park's Week and in the month of International Bog Day, Bogtastic is the South West's biggest and best bog festival celebrating the special qualities of Exmoor's bogs, heritage and wildlife.

This true learning, but also fun experience is a FREE 'drop in' event and will feature the Bogstacle course, stream dipping, live bats, the opportunity to visit one of the South West's last remaining operational water powered sawmills, and lots more all-weather and undercover activities.

Ponies galore

Join in with the cute Exmoor ponies of the Exmoor Pony Centre which is located in the heart of Exmoor National Park. The centre provides a permanent and specialised base for Exmoor foals when they arrive straight off the moor.

Enjoy fun and games and eat delicious birthday cake and get up close to the ponies with pony rides and even try a little pony grooming!
