Open Farm Sunday with the National Trust

THE National Trust invites visitors to the Holnicote Estate on Exmoor for a walk and talk on Open Farm Sunday, 9th June. The walk will start in Selworthy, taking in some beautiful views across the estate and ending with a picnic on the green provided by Periwinkle Cottage Tea-rooms.

The three-mile walk will be a chance to discover how the Trust manages the land for the benefit of nature, taking in land across Selworthy farm, which is currently being managed by the Trust.

National Trust ranger for Exmoor, Jack Siviter said: ‘It is great to be able to connect with both our visitors and the locals. I enjoy being able to share the great work being done on Holnicote, and to show people how they can also support nature friendly living.”

The Holnicote Estate on Exmoor covers over 12,000 acres of land on Exmoor National Park. The village of Selworthy is a designated conservation area.

The farming with nature, walk and picnic takes place between 10am and 1pm on 9 June. To book visit
