Exmoor

We say
Exmoor National Park straddles Somerset and Devon and its unique combination of moorland, woodland and coastline with 1,000km of footpaths and bridleways makes it one of our favourite spots for walking, cycling and horse riding. Choose from seven one-day circular walks along the Wilderness Coast or glimpse wild red deer and Exmoor ponies and lunch at one of the many picturesque village pubs.

Classic Cottages says

Covering almost 270 square miles, Exmoor National Park has the feel of raw wilderness and is crying out to be explored, whether on foot, bicycle or horseback.

  • Charming cottages
  • Walking and cycling
  • Remote locations

You can rent a holiday cottage within the National Park and discover river valleys, moorland, hills and streams. After days out in nature you’ll return to the comfort and privacy of your own characterful home from home.

The miles of trails make it easy to feel you have Exmoor all to yourself. ┬áThere are even beaches within the Park – Porlock, Lynmouth and Minehead are amongst the best.

We have 10 cottages to choose from inside Exmoor National Park, with one up to three bedrooms. We have selected each of them for its character, charm and location.

Take a look at Week Cottage for example, a dreamy beamed bolthole for two with a lovely garden and great pub half a mile away. Andrew’s House, with three bedrooms, is a great choice for families with Dulverton a short riverside walk away.

There’s even more choice if you are happy to stay outside the National Park itself.

Wherever you stay, you will find a well-equipped, spotlessly clean and welcoming cottage and we will arm you with lots of top tips and recommendations for great local places to eat, drink and explore.
