Exmoor Cottages for Couples

We have a fantastic range of cottages available for couples. Whether you want a remote romantic retreat or a convenient bolt-hole, we will have just the thing for you. Plenty of cottages are within easy walking reach of pubs, tea rooms or even ancient heritage sites.


Exmoor Cottages for Families

Bring the kids to explore Exmoor, and you will find no shortage of things to do. They’ll love rock pooling, harbour-side ice creams, Exmoor pony spotting or many of the various activities around on Exmoor. For when the little ones are not so little anymore, long family walks are an excellent way for some decent catch-up time and a refreshing break from busy lives.


Exmoor Cottages for Larger Groups

There are plenty of properties available for enabling everyone to get together under one roof, whether for a weekend or longer break. Birthdays, anniversaries, or just why-not-have-a-holiday gatherings can be accommodated in beautiful properties sleeping up to 15 guests. We have various other options where smaller cottages are within easy reach of each other, for those looking for a little more independence.

Exmoor Dog-Friendly Cottages

One of the best reasons to holiday in the UK is perhaps that the whole family can come. This is especially true when you’re visiting one of the best regions for walks! Most of our cottages are dog-friendly, look for the paw icon to indicate pets are welcome. Thankfully, not only the cottages are dog-friendly; many of the beaches, pubs, cafes and attractions allow dogs too.

Exmoor | A Magical Place to Stay

Those who visit Exmoor will never do so only once. This stunning, ancient land has an otherworldly quality where it feels like time stands still. Here, there is space to breathe, time to think, beauty and light that leave you feeling inspired and refreshed.

Many people are surprised to find the landscape richly varied on Exmoor. Images of high heathy moorland and rugged, windswept trees come to mind. This you can undoubtedly find, where salty sea breezes and wild Exmoor ponies will lift your spirits. But often forgotten is the abundance of soft, rolling hills and pretty woodlands, coves, beaches and sheltered footpaths following meandering brooks. Harbour hamlets scatter the coast with beautiful boats and plenty of spots for ice cream. Villages of higgledy-piggledy cottages with thatched roofs and well-loved roses look like the thing of fairy-tales, with tea rooms, castles and ancient monuments for good measure.

Plenty is going on, from outdoor pursuits to galleries, walks, country shows and various fun days out for the little ones. You can check out our Things to Do and What’s On pages for some inspiration. Even just staying in for some quality time together – whether you make the most of our many cottages with gardens for some summer alfresco dining or one with a wood fire for cosy evenings snuggled in.
