    Located just a few miles from the coast, Washford is a small and peaceful village along the tranquil Washford River, ideal for a family holiday or romantic getaway. Surrounding the village is the beauty of Exmoor National Park, a number of museums and historical sites, and a delightful stretch of coastline. Washford is an excellent base for touring this very special part of south west England.

HomeAway features a good selection of holiday cottages in Washford to suit a wide range of needs and budgets.

    Holiday cottages in Washford offer excellent value for money. A one-bedroom apartment can start from just £240 per week.

    Things to do

    -Beaches: The coast is just two miles from Washford, and well within walking distance from many Washford holiday cottages. The closest beach to Washford can be found in Watchet, a neighbouring village. The beach at Watchet is mainly comprised of pebbles, but still makes for a good stroll. Minehead, which is a little further afoot, offers a much sandier beach that is ideal for walking and sightseeing.

    -Outdoor activities: With Exmoor National Park just a short drive away, there are a wealth of outdoor activities to partake in. Walking is the most popular activity in the park, and there are countless guided trails to explore. Mountain biking, horse riding, and climbing round out the list of popular activities within the varied terrains of the national park.

    -Museums: Watchet, which is less than two miles from holiday cottages in Washford, is home to the Market Watch museum. It is the village’s top attraction and offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the region. Likewise, Washford itself lays claim to the Somerset and Dorset Railway Museum. Both museums have a strong focus on local history and appeal to children and adults alike.

    -Historic monuments: Though Washford is a beautiful and historic village in its own right, nearby Dunster offers more to visitors in terms of historic sites. Located on the edge of Exmoor National Park, the stunning Dunster Castle is the area’s main attraction and is an impressive sight to behold, while the Dunster Yarn Market and Dunster Church of St. George also attract many visitors throughout the year. There are holiday cottages in Dunster if tourists would like an alternative to Washford.
