Nearest beach

Dunster Beach (11 miles)

This wide, flat, sandy beach joins up with Minehead beach to form part of Blue Anchor Bay.

Clatworthy Reservoir (4 miles)

Nearest town

Bampton (3 ¾ miles)

Just outside Exmoor National Park, Bampton is everything you could hope for in a Devon town. Located entirely within a conservation area, Bampton’s streets are lined with historic listed buildings, giving the distinct feeling that you’ve stepped back in time. The town is famous for its flowers - having won the ‘Britain in Bloom’ competition no less than 6 times, Bampton is a magnet for the green-fingered, who make a pilgrimage here during the summer months to marvel at the floral displays.

Called in a small bakery here to purchase bread. Homemade and absolutely delicious, also purchased some venison burgers from a street vendor, the game and pheasant man. He also has a stall at another market nearby, where we paid him another visit to purchase duck and plum sausages. All the produce was exceptionally good and excellent value. We had a wonderful cup of tea in the bakery too , delicious and best value for money cuppa all holiday .

Lovely day out.....

Lovely walk, very peaceful it took my 14 year old son and I four hours to walk the 9 miles. Nice cafe by the lake which served amazingly yummy ice cream. Parking was reasonably priced £4.30 covered our walk and the toilets on site were clean too.

Very long walk

We walked right round this lake (9 miles according to the website)it took us about four and a half hours and it was very muddy in places,but well worth the effort. Shame it was the time of year when the tea rooms were closed! Beautiful scenery.

Free parking and walk for dog

We couldn't go in as we had the dog with us, but the car park was free and there's a nice woodland walk off the car park where dogs can walk off the lead. Nice setting and surrounding countryside.

Stunning

One of the best national trust properties we've ever been to, something for all ages. The gardens are fantastic and offer both formal and woodland styles. Well worth a visit!

Beautiful gardens!

The gardens are the jewel of this property, with many different areas; woodland, formal garden, meadow, parkland and a stunning restored kitchen garden which provides produce for the lovely stables restaurant. Highly recommended and really easy access from the M5.

Heritage Centre

This is an excellent display of local artefacts, pictures, countryside etc. Also railway history and a good kitchen display with a "talking" cook and housekeepr. Upstairs there is more to see - it is especially worthwhile sitting and watching 4 short videos of local events. All this for FREE although they ask for a donation. Coming into Dulverton turn left immediately after the bridge and follow the road around a big curve until it ends in the carpark with access to the centre. otherwise access through the information centre in the main street. This also has a good supply of maps, leaflets etc and the best postcards!

An interesting little town full of conveniences.

Dulverton is not exactly somewhere I could imagine spending an entire day at, but it does provide a good centre by which to stop by and stock up. There are plenty of conveniences such as a local co-op for your simple needs (bread, milk and some alcohols: beers...not wines, go somewhere decent for wine), small thrift shops as well as some tea rooms including Lewis's which is a personal favourite. There is a beautiful church at the top of the town which is worth popping into, and in the centre of town there is a fish and chip shop which opens at lunchtime from 12 noon until 2pm. There is also a bakery which sells a selection of baked breads, pies, sausage rolls as well as many sweet items, the game pie is delicious and enormously filling. The tea rooms near the co-op (I have forgotten the name!) are smaller than Lewis's but offers an entirely different ambience, more cosy and homely, helped in no small way by the warm, friendly manners of the owners (of which the landlady kindly ushered us in for tea as we oogled the menu outside, proclaiming the redundancy of pneumonia when there are menu's indoors to browse).

By far this is no Dunster or Tiverton etc, but it is a quaint little town that is central to lots of local attractions and is worth stopping by for an hour or two.

Rock Inn (4 miles)

Country chic dining on the southern fringes of Exmoor, with locally-sourced meats and cheeses, including Exmoor venison pie. There's a proper bar too, with darts and pool room.

The Exeter Inn was our nearest pub on our holiday, the staff were very friendly, they couldn't do enough to assist us. Lovely, homely pub with beautful log burning fires. The food was exceptional!!
