Exmoor has long been recognised as having dark night skies, a valued attribute of the rural character and tranquillity of the area. Exmoor National Park has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world. On a clear night, the night sky of Exmoor is simply stunning when many astronomical sights can be seen through the naked eye and even more can be discovered through a telescope or binoculars.
Fishing at Park Mill Farm
"This is an accommodating little river in a lovely Devon valley where time really does seem to stand still."
Mike Weaver, Trout And Salmon magazine, Feb. 2009.
There are two rivers (The Little Dart and The Huntacott) running through the property and a private fishing lake where guests can enjoy free fly and coarse fishing and catch Brown Trout, Rudd, Chubb, Roach, Tench and Carp. There is also complimentary fishing in the rivers where Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon can be caught together with Course fish.
On site at Park Mill Farm
The Park Mill Farm cottages are situated in a magical riverside setting, less than a mile from Chulmleigh centre, with 20 acres of lush fields, woods and parkland where you are free to roam along with the abundant wildlife. From the viewing area on top of the hill with bench, to the river and lakeside areas, there is plenty to explore and find a perfect picnic spot. There are benches throughout the site.
There is a communal barbecue area with tools provided, a summer house with books, DVD's area information, a payphone and even wellies!
In 2010, Park Mill was featured in The Sunday Times 'Britain's Cosiest Christmases' feature.

The West Country region
North Devon holidays and the great outdoors go hand in hand, with the area's rugged landscapes, Atlantic coastline and stunning natural sites. The Atlantic coast of North Devon is renowned for its excellent surfing conditions – and surfers flock to the area from all over world to take advantages of the famous waves. A break in one of our North Devon holiday cottages will place guests amidst intriguing towns, the beautiful Exmoor National Park and of course, some fine surfing locations! North Devon's dramatic scenery and unique beauty make it a true escape to the country. North Devon is a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The North Devon & Exmoor Walking Festival is held every Autumn. Exmoor Zoo is home to 200 different species.
Exmoor straddles the Devon and Somerset border along the Atlantic coast and contains one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline in the country. The South West Coast Path provides a challenging hike along the hogback cliffs, but the views across the water to the Welsh coast more than compensate for any burning thighs. The coast is not the only walking on offer. The moor itself is largely uninhabited and is riddled with footpaths and bridleways allowing visitors to explore the unique landscape.
Most visitors stay in one of the many towns and villages around the edge of the moor and can choose between small coastal resorts, such as Lynton and Lynmouth, enjoying precarious locations nestled along the cliffs, or quaint inland villages like Winsford, Dulverton or Exford.
