    Things to do in Dulverton

    Dulverton is nestled in a deep valley of the River Barle. Dating from medieval times, the town is now mostly known as the gateway to the Exmoor National Park.

    -Exmoor National Park is within easy reach of holiday homes in Dulverton. Farmland combines with woodland, moorland, streams and valleys to create a beautiful, diverse landscape where cattle and sheep live alongside rare wildlife species. Dulverton is located on the park’s southern edge and is home to one of three Exmoor National Park Visitor Centres. Here you can find maps as well as a wealth of information on what the park’s 267 square miles have to offer.

    -The Tarr Steps: across the River Barle in Exmoor National Park are about 4 miles from Dulverton. This ancient clapper bridge may date from as far back as 1000 BC and is made up of stone slabs that each weighs between 1 and 2 tons. Hikers may cross the bridge on foot but on one condition: Legend has it that, as part of a bet, the Devil created the bridge and still has sunbathing rights. When he feels like working on his tan, nobody may pass.

    -The River Barle: provides wonderful opportunities for recreation while you stay in holiday farmhouse accommodation in Dulverton. You can go canoeing, kayaking, fishing or bird-watching or simply stroll along the river’s banks. A lovely three-arched bridge crosses the river at Dulverton and this is a favourite subject for artists who come down to the river to paint or draw.

    -Pixton Park is a historic country house just outside of Dulverton. Dating from around 1760, the estate belonged to the Acland family and over the years was passed on to the Herberts, the Earls of Carnarvon. Laura Herbert married Evelyn Waugh, author of works such as Scoop and Brideshead Revisited. Their son Auberon, himself a prolific and acclaimed writer, was born at Pixton Park.

    -Three hillforts: dating from the Iron Age are located just to the north-west and west of Dulverton. They are Oldberry Castle (alternatively known as Oldbury Castle), Mounsey Castle and Brewer’s Castle. It is uncertain why these earthworks overlooking the River Barle were built but it was probably for defense purposes.
