If you enjoy ghost stories, folktales and history, why not include a self-guided ghost walk in your Exmoor walking holiday? Author Nina Dodd and illustrator Asia Wetherell’s ‘Witches, Giants and a Ghost Cat’ book offers a unique look into what people in Exmoor believed in past centuries, the stories they shared and the weird and wonderful ways they tried to shield themselves from ghosts, witches and other magical creatures they believed to be lurking everywhere. The book can be read as a collection of local stories, but it also doubles up as a walking guide to Dunster, an Exmoor village frequently referred to as one of the best-preserved medieval villages in the UK.

‘Witches, Giants and a Ghost Cat – a travel guide to the mystery tales of Dunster’ is available to purchase online at and at Dunster Living shop, 30 High Street, Dunster, TA24 6SG (open daily 10am-5pm).
