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.

We loved last year's visit so much, we wanted to come back at the same time. So relaxing and everything we needed in the accommodation.

Great holiday once again, visited all the familiar places in the area.

The proper type is a lovely property and spotlessly clean. The location is ideal for sightseeing around the areastern. The Bell Inn is an excellent place to eat and drink.
