Timberscombe

Nestled on the banks of the River Avill, Timberscombe in Somerset is a pretty Exmoor village, five miles south of Minehead. In the centre of the village, on Church Street, the Lion Inn is a laidback pub that serves a variety of Somerset ales and ciders, and a menu of hearty meals, prepared with fresh, local ingredients.  On the opposite side of the road, the post office has a small shop selling a range of essentials. On the doorstep of holiday cottages in Timberscombe, the Church of St Petroc is one of the area’s oldest building, featuring a tower that dates back to the 15th century. The rest of Timberscombe consists of quiet lanes dotted with historic homes, and there are magnificent views of the surrounding views from various points around the village.

Cowbridge Sawmill is another local landmark on the doorstep of your holiday cottage in Timberscombe, dating back to at least the 14th century, when it produced flour for the community. It has been restored to working order and is a fascinating place to visit for a glimpse into the past of this remote Exmoor community.

Just outside the village, and a must-see on self-catering holidays in Timberscombe, Bickham Wood is an enchanting stretch of ancient woodland. It gives way to the Brendon Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the highest point of which is Lype Hill, at 1,388ft above sea level. Hikers who complete the strenuous ascent to the summit are rewarded with far-reaching views across Exmoor and the Bristol Channel, toward Wales. The wooded valley of the River Avill is also crisscrossed by scenic footpaths.

A short drive northward, the town of Minehead has a harbour, a sandy beach, ornate gardens, and a station on the West Somerset Railway. Nearby, Dunster is a medieval village with a castle, several atmospheric pubs and the famous annual Dunster by Candlelight Christmas celebration.
