The heart of Hawkridge beats within the ancient walls of St. Giles Church. The presence of Norman features within its ancient church strongly suggests Saxon foundations. This historic place of worship holds an enchanting blend of history, spirituality, and timeless beauty, nestled in the heart of Exmoor. Village houses were thoughtfully designed to embrace the sweeping vistas of the moorland, once deemed "barren ground," now celebrated as one of Hawkridge's prized scenic treasures. The allure of Exmoor vistas has made Hawkridge a popular location for self-catering holidays for those seeking to truly get away from it all. The parish is home to the two charming settlements of Withypool and Hawkridge, accompanied by an array of picturesque farms. The pastoral scenery extends to the moorland of Withypool Common and Bradymoor, along with one side of the wooded valley cradling the Barle River near the iconic Tarr Steps.
