Dulverton is the southern gateway to Exmoor, and sits at the base of the Barle Valley near the point where two key rivers meet – the Exe and Barle. It is a no nonsense country town, home to a collection of gun stores, fishing tackle stores, and gift shops. There is a very nice 12 mile hilly walking trail along the river from Dulverton to Tarr Steps, an ancient stone clapper bridge across the Barle River. For the average walker, this trail will take you 4 or 5 hours. You can add another 3 or 4 hours to your walk by continuing from Tarr Steps up Winsford Hill for amazing views over Devon.
