When it comes to photogenic places in Devon, the Exmoor National Park is one of the best. The region covers most of North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has some incredible sites and views for you to enjoy, whether you want to soak it up in person or head somewhere to take photos to look back on. When restrictions are lifted and we’re able to move around more, here are some of Exmoor’s most photogenic places.

Valley of the Rocks

Brendon Common


This is one of the best places to go on the moor to see open greenery and wildflowers.



Exmoor is full of ancient remains from the Bronze Age, including barrows. This is one such remainder of that time. Set in the middle of a bog, the stone is about nine feet tall and is thought to be something to do with the nearby Barrows, Longstone and Chapman Barrows.

Dark skies

These are just some of the most beautiful places in Exmoor and North Devon – you can find out more about the region here.

Don’t forget, the UK is still under a national lockdown, though restrictions are starting to be lifted. Please do not visit Exmoor or other areas of Devon until government guidance allows travel.
