July is going to be a busy month in our part of the world.
July 10th is a date for the Rohanist diary. Rohantime 2009 Dunster.
Book online from 3rd June.
We are all busy in the Rohan Dunster shop making preparations.
The new summer stock is in. The Rohan Goa Top is ready and waiting for your perusal.
There are lots of jobs still to do. Our Opening Day last January seemed like yesterday.
The shop is spacious, in fact, its Rohan’s biggest shop. So it keeps us all on our toes.
Among all the preparations, we all thought it would be a good idea to pass on a little local Exmoor knowledge so you can make the best of your time in our wonderful area. There are loads of great things happening over the weekend. If you wanted to extend your weekend with us in July, we can ensure you make the best of your Exmoor time.
There are some great walks and mountain biking ranging from the strenuous to a stroll. Hundreds of miles of path’s, tracks and country lanes are open to the public for you to access every nook and cranny of The Exmoor National Park. There are a number of national hiking and walking and bicycle routes cross Exmoor from the South West Coastal Path to the Macmillan Way.
We have our own in house font of all knowledge on cycling in our area. Steve has produced a cycle map, available through The Exmoor National Park and the visitors centre next to the shop. Steve is happy to take you through a few routes when you call in.
Dunster Beach is just down the road make a note to pack the bucket and spade. The beach is situated in the sheltered Blue Anchor bay at the foot of Exmoor. The beach is sand and pebble with safe bathing.
After all that activity Exmoor offers traditional pubs with real West Country atmosphere and a good range of food. We can point you in the right direction.
OK we can hear you say all that is great but what can we do if it rains?
That’s not a problem.
Dunster Castle will keep you busy. Lots to see and do or take a steam train ride to the coast.
If we said Butlins would that bring back memories of old family holidays?
Well, you can take a trip down memory lane. A few miles down the road is Butlins Minehead you could even go for the day. A great place for the kids.
We hope we have given you a little taster of our area. If you have a particular question drop us a comment, we will try and help.
