About the location

SIMONSBATH

Exford 6 miles; Lynmouth 8 miles; Minehead 19 miles.

The small village of Simonsbath stands on the junction in the centre of Exmoor where the East-West, Exford to Challacombe road crosses the North-South, Lynton to South Molton road. The village consists of a number of properties scattered along the lanes from this junction. It is also home to the church of St Lukes, a hotel and a pub. The area has several lovely walks especially down the River Barle which passes the southern edge of the village. The village of Exford is a short drive away which boasts a village green, tea rooms, a shop, Post Office and two traditional inns serving excellent food and drinks. Exmoor National Park is a walkers' paradise with many miles of waymarked paths down the Exe and River Barle valleys and up to the nearby hills, including Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor, with outstanding views over 17 counties. The area is renowned for fishing and riding. The largest herd of wild red deer in England and Exmoor’s unique wild ponies roam the moors, as they have done since the time of the Domesday Book. Guided walks with a National Park Ranger take place throughout the summer, and Exmoor is home to Lorna Doone and Tarka the otter, it is a place of rolling hills, medieval villages, such as Dunster with its castle, wild moors and a dramatic coastline. The coastal towns of Lynmouth, Porlock and Minehead are only a short drive from Simonsbath and there are a variety of beaches along the coast, consisting of sandy and shingle beaches, plus some are ideal for surfing and body boarding. In 2011 Exmoor National Park was designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world. Simonsbath is a wonderful location with plenty of things to do for everyone.
