A fantastic area of outstanding natural beauty and a wealth of amazing wildlife, Simonsbath is a centre for the splendour that is the Exmoor National Park offering a good local pub, restaurant and tea rooms. The whole of Exmoor is your playground, with acres of ground to explore and plenty of pubs to visit for some great traditional English cuisine, just a few minutes from the front door of your holiday rental. Take a walk along the banks of the River Barle, past 19th Century tin mines to the remains of Cow Castle - an iron age fort, keeping your eyes peeled for red deer and other wildlife.
You could take an Exmoor-Style safari across the moors in search for red stag and other majestic creatures. Or follow the River Barle and track the rapids downstream from the calm spots of this beautiful expanse of water until you find the perfect spot for a picnic and paddle. Simonsbath is a peaceful area of countryside and outstanding wildlife that is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of city life. It’ll provide a wonderful contrast and break for you and your family from ordinary life.
