1.5 days at Exeter

At Exeter for 1.5 days over coming weekend.
Which national part is more worth of visiting? Dartmoor or Exmoor? How to spend 2-3 hours there?
Any other place also worth of driving to ? Exmouth ?
Bern to Exeter Quay already.
Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.
Thank you !

Don't bother with Exmouth.

Consider taking A396 north to Exmoor - but it is VERY bendy & slow going. Stop at DUNSTER - then pop into MINEHEAD. Then proceed west on A39 & after a short distance, turn R into SELWORTHY. (ALLERFORD is also worth a quick look). Continue west on A39 head for LYNMOUTH for a stop. If you have time - go to ILFRACOMBE via COMBE MARTIN.

An alternative is to head SW from Exeter to TOTNES - walk the main street. Then continue to DARTMOUTH - lovely estuary setting. Then A379 coast road via TORCROSS to Kingsbridge and around to SALCOMBE.

Brilliant weather predicted this weekend.
