Find My Favourite Exmoor Holiday Cottages in Molland

The picturesque village of Molland is located in the southwestern foothills of Exmoor and is a small, quiet community on the southern edge of Exmoor, with an Inn, a shop and a church. The church is well worth a visit. It is mainly 15th century and is unusual because it managed to avoid restoration in Victorian times. The furnishings are predominantly Georgian, and the pews are high-sided boxed-in benches with little doors to grant access. In 1804, the infamous hunting Parson Froude became vicar of Molland and Knowstone. The Parson had a reputation as a bit of a tyrant, reputedly retaining a small army of tenant farmers, grooms and labourers for 'influencing' his enemies. The London Inn is next to the church. A 15th-century former coaching Inn, this fine, small country hostelry retains its rustic charm: open log fires, inglenooks and beamed ceilings. Good ale straight from the barrel and fresh-cooked food are available. Holiday cottages in Molland will appeal to all those who love the great outdoors and plan to explore Exmoor on foot or by bike or to cruise its largely empty, flower-lined lanes by car. There is a choice of moorland walks across Molland Common offering fine vistas or the Western edge of the Exmoor National Park, as well as plentiful opportunities to spot roving herds of red deer and sleepy Exmoor ponies grazing by the roadside.
