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, Porlock Pilgrim’s Trail and Coleridge Way, they make an ideal base for exploring the rugged shoreline and wild landscapes of north Exmoor.
