Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in North Molton

In the green hills of North Devon lies the village of North Molton, bordered by the beautiful county of Somerset. Devon’s second largest parish, North Molton, offers picturesque views from all angles and makes for a perfect escape to the countryside for families and couples looking for a relaxing self-catering holiday with gentle activity. Sip a delicious pint at the Grove Inn or Poltimore Arms and soak in the atmosphere, of course not forgetting to take a trip to the local shop, which sells homemade pasties and fresh food from local farms. For the kids – or for fun-loving adults! – there is the Rock and Rapid Adventure Centre, offering both indoor rock climbing and other exciting outdoor fun. Go for a walk around Bamfylde Clump on a sunny day, and sit between the beech trees while looking down onto the village, admiring the surrounding nature of Exmoor and the stretching golden coast of North Devon.

Wander far enough, and you will also reach Exmoor Zoo, perfect for a day out with your loved one or for treating the kids. Another great idea for the kids would be a day out at the Quince Honey Farm in South Molton. Here, you can take a truly fascinating glimpse into the secret world of real, live worker bees – and later, you can get your own taste of their creation in the honey shop. South Molton is a pretty and lively little town with wonderful shops, tea rooms and a lively Devon pannier market selling lots of organic foods. A trip to North Molton promises to be a heavenly get-away, made even better by a cosy holiday cottage to return to in the evenings.
