The Somerset region
Exmoor really has something for everyone, it is a place full of contrasts; dramatic coastlines of plunging cliffs, sheltered bays and historic
ports, wide open space and wilderness of the moors as well as the wooded valleys with quiet trails for you to enjoy. Exmoor is a holiday destination of unrivaled beauty and interest.
Malmsmead sits on the Somerset-Devon border deep in the valley below County Gate. The 17th century packhorse bridge spans Badgworthy Water and is the focal point of the hamlet. R.D. Blackmore's 'Lorna Doone' novel, published in 1869, is a romance based on a group of historical characters, he used the landscape of this area as a basis for the novel.
Malmsmead falls within the parish of Oare, known as 'Are' in the Domesday Book of 1086, the parish includes the hamlet of Oareford and Culbone which has its own tiny church - said to be the smallest church in England.
This area is excellent for walking; you can chose to stay within the shelter of the wooded valleys and explore the remains of medieval villages or enjoy delicious pub food and cream teas. Or you may wish to venture onto the open moors to experience the wilds of Exmoor at its best.
The nearby towns of Lynmouth and Lynton worth a visit to see their famous water-powered funicular railway that joins the two towns on the rugged North Devon coast.
