The Malt House
Exmoor National Park, in the South-West of England (map), is an area of outstanding natural beauty including open moorland, hill farms and dramatic coastline.
The Malt House is located in the hamlet of Exton which consists of fifteen houses, a church and a farm, in the heart of Exmoor National Park. Perched on the steep side of the Exe valley, we are within walking distance of Winsford Hill and the river Exe, and surrounded by idyllic countryside full of flowers, wildlife, birds and history. Countless footpaths and bridleways crisscross the area, and there are plenty of long distance and less demanding walks which can start and end in Exton.
The area is ideal for walking, riding, fishing, sailing or just relaxing! The North Devon coast, with cliff walks, rocks and sandy beaches, is within easy reach by car. Wimbleball lake, with sailing and fishing opportunities, is four miles away.
The nearest shop, post office and garage are in Winsford, two miles up the valley. Dulverton, five miles away, is the headquarters of the National Park and is an attractive large village which can supply all general needs.
As there is limited public transport in the area a car is essential.
The Malt House is a comfortable and delightful self catering holiday cottage situated near the border between the counties of Devon and Somerset, in the heart of Exmoor National Park (an area of outstanding natural beauty situated in south-west England). The self-catering holiday accommodation, with beds for up to 4 people, offers the perfect base for recreational activities such as walking, cycling, fishing, sailing, hiking, riding and painting, for exploring pretty local villages such as Dulverton, Dunster, Winsford, Exford and Porlock, and for simply enjoying Exmoor's beautiful valleys, moorlands and coastline. There is also an attached music room for the use of groups of musicians wishing to play during their stay at the Malt House.
