The South West is a mecca for outdoor sport and adventure. For the first time the South West Outdoor Festival brings them together in one unique place – at Heddon Valley – Exmoor’s secret valley .
The festival is being supported by numerous legends of the outdoor world who either hail from the region originally, or have gravitated here because of the wealth of exciting adventure opportunities that exist in the area.
Among them is Dartmouth-based TV presenter Monty Halls, who will be attending the festival as a speaker, film maker and self-confessed outdoor addict.
The South West is a mecca for outdoor activities and adventure pursuits, and this year the inaugural South West Outdoor Festival is inviting everyone to come and explore the incredible range of opportunities that are taking place around one unique place: Heddon Valley in Exmoor National Park.
