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.

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.

The owners care, thought and consideration for their guests comfort is something to be admired. The quality of fittings, utensils, furnishing and bedding is second to none. The cleanliness is unbelievable. I have never been anywhere and not washed the cutlery and plates before I have used them - but not here! It's immaculate. Like many, I read the reviews before I book anywhere and, for this property, with the exception of one (which of course, we have all read), they are all 5*. My Weimaraner unfortunately died a few years ago and I have never replaced him. To say this is a dog friendly cottage is an understatement. In a spacious and warm utility area, there is a very large cage and beautiful bed. By the side is a comfy settee if your dog prefers. With it's own private shower; doggie mat and towels, this is 5* accommodation for any size pooch. The request not to allow dogs upstairs or on the rest of the furniture in this property is very reasonable (and a rule I applied with my own dog at home). To ask that dogs be shut in the utility area if they are to be left alone is also reasonable and common sense; after all, we all know what they get up to once our backs are turned. To abuse these simple rules is total disrespect in my opinion, not only to the owners but also those guests who choose not to have a dog. I cannot recommend this property highly enough - with or without a dog. The communication with the owner is excellent; nothing is too much trouble and I received a lovely email and confirmation that my deposit had been refunded before I arrived home!

The location was perfect for walking out into the village and the many walks in the surrounding area. It was lovely to have flowers and cake when we arrived and there was everything we needed for our stay.

The location is wonderful right in the centre of the village alongside a beautiful church and a brilliant pub just across the Square. The local people were very friendly. There are so many places to visit within easy reach and walks around the village to enjoy. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return ourselves.
