Location description from owner

The England region

Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.

Malmsmead

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.
