Up close and personal with Exmoor red deer

30 September 2009

Porlock’s Rutting Weekend, Friday 16 – Sunday 18 October, which gives visitors an opportunity to get close to the magnificent Exmoor red deer in their natural surroundings, has now been reduced to £195 per person for double or single room occupancy.

The package includes early morning and late afternoon/evening expeditions to view the rut at dawn and dusk led by ranger Richard Eales from Exmoor National Park and Nigel Hester and Charles Harding from the local National Trust Holnicote Estate. It is a magical experience watching and listening to the wild deer as the stars fade and the sun rises over Exmoor, and vice versa late afternoon. There will also be a Discovery Safari wildlife jeep excursion and a visit to Exmoor Falconry (own transport).

Local B&B accommodation is within easy walking distance of the Village Hall where there will be a jazz supper on the Friday and a dinner with wine and a talk on the Saturday night; both meals will feature local Exmoor produce.

For details and to make a booking contact the Porlock Visitor Centre via email to porlockci@somerset.gov.uk.
