Malmsmead is a hamlet on Exmoor which is approximately 2 miles from Poocks Cottage. There is a lovely homewares/gift shop and the 'Lorna Doone Arms' where you can get a meal, afternoon tea and cake or take-away food. The Lorna Doone Arms is beside the river just beyond the packhorse bridge in Malmsmead. They are also licensed so you can enjoy a couple of drinks with a meal. Please note that the shop and Lorna Doone Arms is usually closed during the winter.The village of Porlock is approximately 5 miles from Poocks Cottage, it is a traditional Exmoor village and has three pubs, two grocery shops, a traditional local butcher, Post Office, chemist, cash machine, petrol station, hardware shop, visitor centre and a range of independent restaurants, shops and tea rooms. Lynmouth and Lynton are approx 7 miles in the opposite direction, they have similar amenities and a good selection of cafes and restaurants. Both are well worth a visit.Minehead is approximately 10 miles from the cottage (beyond Porlock). Here you will find the larger supermarkets and petrol stations (Tesco and Morrisons are both situated on the outskirts of the town and have longer opening hours), most major high street banks with cash machines, plus a range of other shops throughout the town.The Culbone Inn (en-route to Porlock) is a good option for a meal out or a pint, it is locally renowned for excellent food. There is a footpath up to Culbone from Poocks Cottage, it's mostly uphill on the way there - so the good news is it's downhill on the way back!
