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.

The weather in Dulverton

Since Dulverton is situated in Exmoor, it has a mild and wet climate like the rest of the area. Summer highs reach around 21°C while winter temperatures drop down to 1 or 2°C . On beautiful summer days, you can use your Dulverton holiday accommodation as a base from which to go exploring. When you need shelter from the rain or the cold, you can have a great time in the cosy indoors too.

Travel to Dulverton

Dulverton is conveniently located about 36 miles north of Exeter Airport while Bristol Airport is about 43 miles to the north-east. Both these airports receive regular flights from several destinations in Europe while Bristol Airport also receives flights from a few other international destinations. From the airport, it’s best to hire a car or taxi and travel to Dulverton. There are no train services in Exmoor and bus routes via Dulverton tend to be quite complicated. An easy option from Minehead, however, is to pre-book a ride with the Moor Rover transport service, which will drop you off or pick you up from anywhere in Exmoor National Park.

The house is in a great location on the main village square with easy parking and close proximity to the magnificent church and well regarded gastropub. The house is very well equipped and was spotlessly clean. The living area is spacious and we really liked the oak floor and oak staircase. The bed was comfy and it was good having an ensuite. We noticed in the visitors book that many people came back to the house and we would have no hesitation either in returning. We highly recommend it.
