Location

Sitting on the edge of Exmoor National Park, Skilgate is a great base for exploring the Brendon Hills, the Quantocks and Exmoor National Park. The property is not far from the Somerset/Devon border and the county town of Taunton is just 19 miles, however a car is necessary as this is a a rural area. The closest stations are at Taunton (19 miles) and Tiverton Parkway (13 miles); both with direct trains to London Paddington in 2 hours.

The local towns of Bampton (5 miles) and Dulveron (7 miles) have excellent food shops (bakers, greengrocers, butchers, local supermarkets). Tiverton (11 miles) has Tesco and Morrison. Dunster with its Castle and medieval village is ½ hr away. Wimbleball Lake (sailing, fishing, walking and picnicking) is also close by (1-2 miles) as is Haddon Hill (deer, Exmoor ponies and wildlife).

Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Once a royal forest, the National Park covers 267 square miles of amazing landscapes, including moorland, woodland, valleys and farmland which has been shaped by nature and people over thousands of years. 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.
