Dulverton

Heritage and culture

Less than half an hour’s drive from Dulverton, Dunster Castle is a National Trust treasure with pretty subtropical gardens, a working watermill and dramatic views over the Quantock Hills. Knightshayes is another National Trust estate with acres of gardens, parklands, woodland walks and wild play areas. Literary buffs will relish the chance to follow in the footsteps of one of England’s most prestigious romantic poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Explore 51 miles of the Quantock Hills, the Brendon Hills and surrounding Exmoor landscape through winding waymarked paths, beautiful valleys, charming chapels and rich countryside. 

Food and drink

After a brisk country walk, The Bridge Inn is a great place to stop and refuel, with a friendly atmosphere and varied menu. One of Dulverton’s hidden gems, Woods Bar and Restaurant is a charming country pub, set on the edge of Exmoor. Its classic British cooking and extensive wine list make it a firm favourite amongst locals. Stop by The Swan for dinner and drinks at the oldest pub in Bampton, or visit The Masons Arms, a Michelin star restaurant. The Tarr Inn also comes highly recommended.

Activities for children

Animal lovers and bird watchers will love nothing more than a visit to Exmoor’s Owl and Hawk Centre, situated just 12 miles from Dulverton. A 15th century farmstead with a large collection of owls, birds of prey and friendly animals, enjoy a walk with a herd of alpaca or marvel at the outdoor flying display. Alternatively, a day out with Exmoor Wildlife Safaris will add an extra splash of fun to any holiday. Explore the dramatic windswept moors, rushing rivers and wooded valleys as your knowledgeable guide tells you all about the local legends of the area. 

Outdoor pursuits

Part of the Exmoor National Park, the ancient Tarr Steps walking route passes through a beautiful wooded valley of the River Barle and the heathland of Winsford Hill. If you'd prefer, cycle over the River Barle and follow the gentle track towards Knightshayes Court or discover Tiverton Castle by bike for a tougher climb. Exmoor provides fantastic cycling trails for all abilities, as well as horse riding treks. Keen golfers will love Somerset’s oldest club, Minehead and West Somerset Golf Club. There are also plenty of opportunities for fishing in Exe Valley as well as clay pigeon and game shoots with Shalden Shooting School. 

Beaches and watersports

The North Devon coastline is home to some great beaches for sunbathing, surfing and walking. Saunton Sands can be reached within an hour’s drive and makes an idyllic day trip location with its expanse of sand, food outlets and beach shops. Nearby Lynmouth Beach is backed by wooded hills and served by a unique cliff railway from Lynton. Other recommended beaches are Putsborough Sands and Woolacombe. Less than a 20 minute drive from Dulverton, Wimbleball Lake Country Park offers a range of watersports. 

Time for pampering

For a spot of pampering during your stay, Heyford House Day Spa in nearby Willand promises serene relaxation for both body and mind. With a range of treatments and therapies available, from deep tissue massage to radiant skin facials, there’s plenty to make you feel recharged and refreshed. We also recommend The Cleve for a fantastic spa day, a Victorian country house with a twist, or The Mount near Taunton, another luxuriously traditional house. With vast countryside views, these spas offer complete tranquility.

Willow's Rest is a beautiful barn conversion. It is warm and comfortable, despite there being lots of space to move around. And it's quiet! The kitchen is really well equipped, which is unusual for holiday rentals, meaning we could easily prepare meals. 

The Kelly Family, Hampshire - November 2019

We stayed in Nightjar and Willow's Rest near Dulverton. Both properties were furnished and equipped to the highest standard. From the minute I arrived and was welcomed by the owner, to the minute we left, everything exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating a special birthday and couldn't have asked for a more "special" property to be in. I would like to keep it a secret but it is too good, not to share. The service provided by Perfect Stays was also of an excellent standard, they dealt with all our queries and provided great recommendations for add-ins to the accommodation. We will definitely be back.

The Saunders Family, Oxfordshire - November 2019

Willows Rest and its amenities were fantastic, the surrounding countryside was amazing, Daniel "the owner" was attentive and helpful during our stay. The hamper awaiting us on arrival consisted of local produce and was a welcome addition covering all essentials. The only problem was loss of WiFi connection, but that was no fault of Willows Rest. Definitely a property to revisit sometime in the near future.

The Hodges Family, Surrey - October 2020

We recently stayed at Willows Rest, it is such a beautiful place, the house is simply gorgeous and the views breathtaking. We had a very friendly welcome by Dan, the owner and we were made to feel very welcome immediately. There was a lovely welcome hamper on arrival filled with delicious local produce which we really enjoyed. Our boys loved the jacuzzi over looking the pond. There is lots to do in the nearby area or equally you can choose just to relax and enjoy the house! We will definitely be returning!!
