Local Area

On the doorstep of this stunning property you will find all the treasures within Exmoor National Park, with Tarr Steps, Porlock, Lynton, Lynmouth, and the medieval town of Dunster all in close proximity.

Some of the finest beaches in Europe can be found just 20 miles away at Woolacombe (The Sunday Times best UK beach in 2021!), Croyde, Saunton Sands and Putsborough.  Awesome Wimbleball lake us also just up the road too with great cycle and walking routes, sailing, paddle boarding and much more.

Take the Exmoor safari and discover this unspoilt and stunning landscape with its native ponies and elusive red deer. There’s a nearby shooting school where you can hone your clay pigeon shooting or try your hand at fly-fishing, just down the road in Exebridge.

For supplies, 10 mins drive away is the gorgeous village of Dulverton, the Southern gateway to Exmoor. A thriving and picturesque village approached over the river Barle, Dulverton offers everything you might need – two excellent pubs (one has won UK wine pub of the year for the last 12 years!), a Co-Op for all your grocery needs, lovely delicatessen, local fruit & veg, antique and gift shops, garage and medical centre.

For eating and drinking there are numerous options nearby ranging from honest, home cooked pub grub, to Michelin starred extravagance. There’s also a Thai restaurant that offers takeaway and a great chippy!

Better yet, let us take all the hassle away and cook for you! We’ll deliver a sumptuous, homemade feast right to your door (we’ll send you details of everything, including our favourite haunts and walks a few weeks before you arrive but if you want to have a look and see what takes your fancy visit – www.croftandcottage.co.uk).
