Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.

​Malmsmead is a hamlet on Exmoor, however you are be able to purchase treats and take-away food from the Lorna Doone Arms which is situated beside the river just beyond the packhorse bridge a few minutes away on foot. The Lorna Doone Arms is also licensed so you can enjoy a couple of drinks with a meal, and all within easy walking distance. Please note that the Lorna Doone Arms may be closed during the winter season (October to Easter). There is also a lovely homewares/gift shop in Malmsmead.Malmsmead is approximately 7 miles from both Lynton and Porlock. The village of Porlock 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. Lynton is a small town in the opposite direction and boasts similar amenities, both well worth a visit.Minehead is approximately 12 miles from the cottage (beyond Porlock). Here you will find the larger supermarkets and petrol stations (Tesco and Morrison's 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.For meals or a pint (further afield that the Lorna Doone Arms) there is The Staghunters Inn in Brendon and The Culbone Inn (en-route to Porlock) which is locally renowned for excellent food. Lynton and Lynmouth also has a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.
