The West Country region
Oak Tree Holiday Cottage is centrally located between the North Devon and South Devon coasts. Both are easily accessible within an hour by car and the towns of Taunton, Barnstaple, Exeter and Minehead are all within 25 miles.
National Trust properties in the area to visit are Dunster Castle, Knightshayes Court and Arlington Court. For railway enthusiasts the West Somerset Railway one of Somerset's top tourist attractions and the Cliff Valley Railway at Lynton/Lymouth are well worth a visit.
The cottage is situated in quiet West Somerset countryside on the southern edge of Exmoor National Park ANOB. The nearest town of Dulverton, a bustling little market town where time has stood still with National Park Visitor Centre, tea shops, galleries, farm shop, butchers, deli and a selection of interesting shops and good pubs and restaurants.
Nearby is the ancient clapper bridge over the River Barle known as Tarr Steps dating from 1000BC between Dulverton and Withypool with riverside inn. The scenic Wimbleball Lake Country Park lying within the National Park surrounded by woodland and meadows is a short drive away offers "first class facilities both on and off the water". Wimbleball Lake has been nominated as the first Dark Sky Discovery Site on Exmoor - so it's a great place to simply gaze at the stars.
Exmoor National Park is a great place to explore and enjoy with over 1000km of footpaths and bridleways, through woodland, by rivers and on open moorland.
