    We are off for a last little 'holiday' to Devon in a few weeks. We are staying in Ilfracombe and I have just realised it is right next to Exmoor. I have ALWAYS wanted to see the wild ponies up there and wondered if there are many? Will I actually get to see them if I go to the National Park?

    Also anyone know what the Zoo is like? Might have a little trip there on the same day.

    Anyone reccomend anything else to do? We have 3 nights there :)

    ha ha, we were driving across exmoor when a huge herd of them just ran out of nowhere and in front of the car...*PANIC* one emergency stop later we were giggling uncontrollably.

    Seriously the Dartmoor and Exmoor are both so lovely. My favourite places in the UK
