Location description from owner

The England region

Exmoor is characterised by two main landscape types. The first is the meeting of the rolling expanse of high moorland and the sea. The coastline itself is one of high cliffs, some of them among the highest sea cliffs in England, but this height is sometimes disguised by the cliffs' convex shape, usually referred to as "hog's back". Views are often extensive inland, over the undulating moorland, while seaward in good visibility the coast of Wales may be seen across the Bristol Channel.

In contrast, substantial lengths of the Exmoor coast comprise deep and steep valleys cutting across the high land. These valleys, locally known as "coombes", are typically wooded, often with ancient oak woodland. Frequently this woodland spreads along the adjacent cliff faces, also convex in shape. The nature of the ancient woodland makes for an environment of considerable ecological interest.

Historical Development of the Coast - Exmoor

Because of its height and relative infertility, Exmoor has never been heavily populated. However, from the Bronze Age onwards (4000BC onwards), farming began to be undertaken, resulting in the clearance of the natural forest. This clearance led to the formation of bog and moorland, as found on the highest parts of Exmoor today. On the steepest slopes, however, the ancient oak woodland was retained, managed for charcoal and tan-bark, and these ancient woodlands are found along much of the Exmoor coast.

The Romans reached this coast, using its height to keep a look out over the Bristol Channel. At Martinhoe, west of Lynton, they established a fortlet and look-out post, the remains of which can still be seen, probably one of a chain. Another is known near Countisbury, on the other side of Lynton.

Towns and settlements are rare along this high coast, being found only at Minehead, Porlock, Lynton with its twin Lynmouth and Combe Martin, at the western end. Minehead is of Saxon origin as a settlement, becoming an important port in Elizabethan times and then a fishing centre. Today, like most of the South West's coastal towns, it is most known as a tourist centre, in Minehead's case based on a large holiday village. Its name, incidentally, is derived from the Celtic word for a hill and there are no mines here, and never have been.

Porlock also has Saxon origins and was sacked by the Danes in 918. It later became a prosperous market town with a busy port at Porlock Weir, but is now engaged almost exclusively in tourism.

Lynton is another town of Saxon origin. Its twin at Lynmouth, almost vertically below it, developed much later. This area came to prominence with the Romantic poets Wordsworth, Shelley and Coleridge, who proclaimed the area to be "England's Little Switzerland". Later, in the late 19th century, the publisher George Newnes fell in love with the area and built its famous water-powered cliff railway.

Combe Martin is first referred to in medieval times, becoming important in the 13th century after the discovery of lead and silver in the hills here. It developed along the long narrow valley leading inland from the sea and now claims to be the longest village in England. Remains of medieval strip fields running up the valley sides are still in evidence. The mines are now long gone and, in common with the rest of the coast, Combe Martin's attractions are now principally for tourists.

Minehead

At the heart of one of England’s most beautiful regions, Woodcombe Lodges is ideally placed for the glorious countryside of Exmoor National Park, the Quantock Hills and the North Devon coastline. At the same time, Minehead with its seafront, harbour and wide range shops, pubs, restaurants and local bus services is only 1 ½ miles away.

In a tranquil rural setting on the edge of the National Park, Woodcombe lodges stands with outstanding 180o views from the sea on one side overlooking Minehead and the approaches to Dunster through to the wooded slopes of Exmoor on the other.

Watchet’s harbour, Dunster with it’s castle and medieval Yarn Market, the picturesque villages of Selworthy and Allerford, Porlock and Porlock Weir harbour, and the attractive resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth are all within easy reach.

The area provides endless opportunities for sight seeing, with wonderful scenery wherever one goes and a truly spectacular coastline westward from Porlock and Lynmouth. Local beauty spots include Dunkery Beacon, the Doone Valley, Tarr Steps, Watersmeet and the Valley of the Rocks.

There is also a wide range of local attractions including the West Somerset Railway, whose steam trains run between Minehead, Watchet and Bishop’s Lydeard. This is an ideal area for walkers and there are many opportunities for sea and fly fishing, bird watching, cycling, sailing, riding and other outdoor pursuits as well as beaches for the children. There are also numerous attractive Gardens and Houses open to the public within a convenient distance.

Minehead has a golf course, a Leisure centre offering squash, tennis, badminton and a full gym facility as well as daily organised children's activities during the school holidays. Day entry to Butlins provides further opportunities to entertain the children.
