Exploring Exmoor

Exmoor spans West Somerset and NorthDevon with high, open moorland, a variety of different woodlands and a dramatic coastline.

Famous for its red deer and Exmoor ponies, the area offers activities and interest for all the family: wildlife safaris, trekking, riding, biking, kayaking, fishing and boat trips can be arranged locally.

Welcome to the historic Ashley Combe Estate. Set within secluded woodland by the sea, our self-catered cottages are easily accessible and a short walk from Porlock Weir. Close to the Southwest Coast Path and Coleridge Way, they make an ideal base for exploring the rugged shoreline and wild landscapes of north Exmoor.
