B&Bs in the heart of Exmoor
Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Exmoor is widely available in pretty villages such as Exford, Wheddon Cross and Winsford in the heart of the National Park. Cosy, welcoming B&Bs in these villages are perfect for a relaxing break or activity holiday, surrounded by beautiful scenery and just a short walk from country inns and village tearooms. Stay in a central Exmoor B&B situated in a stunning wooded valley or in a riverside location along the rivers Exe with its great fishing or the river Barle, a top spot for kayaking. Central village B&Bs offer a quiet, idyllic setting as well as easy access to some of Exmoor’s most famous beauty spots and walks. Exford is perfectly placed for visits to the ancient stone Tarr Steps and the walk to Dunkery Moor and Beacon. Exmoor Land Rover guided tours also depart from central villages like Exford.
National Park Coast & Border B&Bs
Border locations on the Exmoor Coast such as Porlock and Minehead, and around the edge of the National Park such as the medieval small town of Dunster and Dulverton in the south offer an excellent choice of quality B&B guest houses. Stay in a Dunster B&B near the castle, ideal for coast and country exploring. Dulverton in the Barle Valley, one of Exmoor’s most popular southern gateways close to the Devon border, is surrounded by steep sided wooded hills and has many B&Bs. On the coast, bustling Minehead and the village of Porlock next to spectacular Porlock Bay afford access into the National Park and onto the South West Coast Path. You can also pick up the scenic West Somerset Railway at Minehead and pretty Porlock nestling on low ground flanking Exmoor’s steep rocky coast contains many fine B&B guest houses with magnificent sea views.
