Exmoor Holiday Cottage: Little Mead Brendon

Little Mead is an idyllic area, on the edge of the village of Brendon, surrounded by wooded hills, providing complete seclusion – ideal for walkers, horse riders, golfers or fishermen.

Quiet and tranquil Brendon is only 3 miles from the Doone Valley and the picturesque towns of Lynton and  Lynmouth

Footpaths criss cross the area over the open moor, through wooded valleys and along the spectacular Exmoor coast line

It is an easy drive to the pretty village of Porlock along the dramatic scenic coast road

To the west are the superb beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe.

Fishing:

Salmon, sea trout and trout fishing is available on the East Lyn River: Down stream of the cottage tickets are available from Brendon House Hotel (lOOyds from the cottage) for the Glenthome and Watersmeet fishery. Tickets also available upstream of the cottage on the Badgworthy Water.

Riding: There are plenty of stables in the area but we recommend either Brendon Manor Stables, or Clouds Hill Farm Stables at Malmsmead.

Golf: There are golf courses at Ilfracombe, Minehead and Saunton Sands

Walking: The walks are too numerous to mention except to say that from the cottage you can either walk along the river, up onto the moor or along the coastal path. All are within easy reach.

Eating out: There are any number of excellent eating places. The Stag Hunters Inn is only 250 yds from the cottage and the Rockford Inn a mile further on and the Blue Ball at Countisbury. A particular favourite of ours is the Fox and Goose at Parracombe about a twenty minute drive away.
