South Molton

South Molton holiday cottages are a great choice if you want to experience life in a traditional Devon market town, with some of the county's most beautiful countryside on your doorstep. This thriving community lies on the banks of the River Mole, with the wilds of Exmoor to its north and the sandy beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe to its west. Wandering into the town centre, you'll pass rows of pretty cottages and an excellent museum, where you can explore the history of sheep and cattle trading at the town's livestock market. In the heart of South Molton, there's an excellent pannier market, which is the place to go for fresh, local produce and antiques. There's also a good selection of family-run shops, cosy pubs and welcoming tearooms, and a pretty town square, which remains the centre of activity for the community. For a slice of delicious homemade cake or toasted teacakes the size of side plates with a pot of tea, try the renowned Corn Dolly Tea Shop.
