Little Switzerland - The scenery is just fantastic, there are lots of fabulous views, a great way to explore the area on an Autumnal day, a beautiful scenic drive with memories to last long.
Cliff top driving, winding narrow lanes and a little steep in...More
An absolutely stunning spot. I was absolutely over whelmed by the beauty of this place! A great walk down too the light house, it is steep back up but honestly is totally worth it. This is definite if you’re in the area, you can look...More
A wonderful drive, but as others have alluded to, the poor driver is so focused on the road / traffic we don't get the full benefit of the views. Although we get the exhilaration of the drive itself. Surely County could make some more viewing...More
The A39 heading along the North Devon coast is, in my opinion, one of the most stunning and enjoyable drives in England. At the eastern end Porlock (and Porlock Weir) is a pretty village to wander round, before the steep ascent of Porlock Hill begins....More
This drive has it all...beautiful scenery,coastal views,steep climbs,hairbends and only some of it between two of the prettiest villages in Porlock and Lynmouth.
I have often said that this drive although a little on the scary side,is my favourite...Hardknott pass was extremely challenging and the...More
This is a very beautiful drive on A39 on Porlock Hill between the two villages Porlock and Lynmouth. A part of the Exmoor "21 Mile Drive".
Its a stunning view down the valley and the Bristol bay. If you cant do a hike or a...More
What a great drive this is. Heading out of Hunters Inn up a 1in 4 hill we met a delivery van. So had to reverse 100yarda down the hill, interesting. Once past this what a drive. The cliff road is incredible, very narrow and few...More
Every review we've read said not to take your anything bigger than a car on the 21-mile drive. It is apparently too narrow and twisty. Rubbish. A motorhome, maybe, but a campervan is just fine.
We drove our VW California without any issue whatsoever along...More
Breathtaking views and a fantastic drive well worth it. Porlock hill and it's two vertical climbs with hairpin bends is seriously scary, as it was wet and rainy to boot. Apparently it's the UK's steepest road!
I only came to know later that there is...More
We were so fortunate with the weather during our recent trip that undertaking the 21 mile drive really was a bit of a no-brainer! ... Safety first. It takes a skilled and confident driver to do the route; there are sheer drops next to narrow...More

Hello Italian Girl, I think the biggest difficulty will be with width of the roads, they can be very narrow, if you hire a car maybe go for a smaller one. The best experience though is to find the tracks and off road type of routes, lots of lanes where there is only room for one vehicle, there are passing places which allow a vehicle to pull off the road to allow another to pass. We've just spent a fantastic holiday touring in a Range Rover Evoque Convertible, quite a big car and we didn't really have any problems. Do lots of reading about the area and really enjoy your hols.

The 21 mile drive is a figure of 8 drive through Exmoor national Park. You can either start from the east side or westn side of Exmoor. Depending on your starting point the route would incorporate Heddon Mouth, Lee Bay, Lynton & Lynmouth, Brendon Valley and Watermeet to name a few POIs.
