Make a self catering cottage or holiday rental in South Molton, Devon your home away from home

The small market town of South Molton takes its name from the River Mole which runs through it. It still has an authentic livestock market on Thursday. The main street has plenty of pubs, antique shops and art galleries for browsing, as well as local stores for supplies.

South Molton’s heyday was in the late 18th and early 19th centuries when it was a thriving mining and wool town. The river drove the watermill for the woollen and corn mills. Market Square has some interesting buildings which date back to these times. After the Industrial Revolution South Molton gradually fell into quiet obscurity.

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!!!
