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.

Tranquil and Relaxing. This property for us was better than home from home.

5 of 5
Modern, clean and roomy with many extras. The flowers and new laid eggs provided were an example of extras not normally found in a rented property. The quality of all furnishings and crockery was to the highest standard. Location was very quiet, the separate garden area was relaxing with wonderful views of the natural woodland all around the Lodge. To be able to relax to the sound of so many bird varieties made this special.
