Make a holiday cottage in Exmoor your home away from home

Straddling the coastline of north Devon and Somerset, Exmoor National Park stretches for 267 square miles to encompass scenic moorland and ancient hunting forests. Rugged and rural, the park attracts visitors seeking a holiday close to nature. Hundreds of miles of trails traverse Exmoor, providing holidaymakers with an endless combination of routes to explore. This beautiful region of England is punctuated by charming towns and a myriad of options of places to stay such as holiday cottages in Porlock or holiday cabins tucked in a corner of the park. With several rivers in the area, fishing and canoeing are popular activities, among plenty of other outdoor activities.

There are rentals available throughout, from small coastal fishing villages to countryside retreats. Most Exmoor self catering cottages have one to four bedrooms. Small cabins start at just £230 per week, making the park an affordable holiday destination for budget travellers. Larger and more luxurious accommodation is available from £400 per week. All holiday accommodation comes fully furnished, but some offer added amenities such as a swimming pool or tennis court.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Hundreds of miles of trails crisscross Exmoor National Park, revealing a variety of different landscapes. Many visitors choose to explore the park on foot, whilst others opt for cycling and horse riding. Exmoor holiday homes often enjoy access to these trails. For a unique wildlife watching opportunity, try the Land Rover Safari tours that drive through the moorland and often encounter wild deer and Exmoor’s famous ponies. Visitors can also take to one of the many rivers in Exmoor for fishing and kayaking. The opportunity to canoe is available at Wimbleball Lake, located in the southern part of the park.

-Family attractions: There is lots of family fun to be had in Butlins, located just outside the border of the park in Minehead. Butlins is popular with visitors staying in Exmoor, just like Exmoor is popular for day trips for visitors staying in holiday homes in Minehead. The resort is home to its very own waterpark, fairground, and lake where families can ride bumper boats. The historic village of Dunster is also a great place to take children. Here holidaymakers can visit Dunster Castle and Dunster Water Mill, which are two excellent historic sites that are as educational as they are entertaining.

-Food and drink: Delicious fresh food is everywhere in Exmoor National Park. The region is famous for its dairy products, particularly its cream, ice cream and cheeses. Everyone will enjoy cream tea at the tearooms in Withypool and Wimbleball. Dishes containing local game are also featured regularly on pub menus; pheasant, rabbit, venison, and locally caught trout are all popular with visitors.

-Culture: The summer sees plenty of festivals and cultural events take place in Exmoor National Park. Top events include the Simonsbath Festival, which runs from May to June and offers a whole host of concerts and exhibitions. The Exmoor Pony Festival is also a local favourite. Outdoor lovers won’t want to miss the North Devon & Exmoor Walking Festival, which runs from late April to early May.

Really friendly people and luxurious accommodation. High quality furnishings and amazingly warm, even without the gorgeous wood burner on the go! Lovely views and so peaceful. On a clear night we went out into garden, it was pitch dark and the stars we could see were amazing, clearest I've ever seen the Milky Way Galaxy! I love the fact that in most of the pubs in this area you can sit with your dog, which is great if you're out walking and fancy stopping for a bite to eat or a quick pint! Minehead is worth a trip, and go to the Apple Tree Café (number 1 in Menhead, just look at the cakes) as they LOVE dogs and give them treats and their own blanket to lie on when you go in! I would definitely return to these cottages as they are 5 star quality and you just step out of the front door and you've countryside walks straight away - and I'd love to see the 4 resident dogs again, so friendly!!!

Your welcome is genuine and warm. This was our third visit and the cottage was as magical as our first visit. We feel at home straight away and didnt want to leave. The dogs enjoyed the garden and loved running on the beach. We loved the comfy bed and enjoyed a restful sleep. We will be back in 2017.
