Wintershead has a truly stunning, remote location in Exmoor National Park. Close to the Devon/Somerset border and easily accessible from the North Devon link road, we provide our guests with luxury self catering cottage accommodation in spectacular surroundings. If you are looking for holiday accommodation where you can really get away from it all and relax in quality, well-equipped cottages full of character in beautiful moorland surroundings, then Wintershead can provide your perfect holiday destination.

Our self-catering cottages have all been converted from the old farm buildings to provide luxury holiday accommodation whilst still retaining the charm and character of the original buildings. All cottages are centrally heated, with comfortable beds and well equipped kitchens. There are comfortable sofas and colour TVs in the lounge areas, with DVD players in some cottages.

  • Laundry Room – separate, fully equipped with automatic washing machine, tumble dryer and guests payphone.
  • Ample Parking.
  • 11 acres of grounds which provide a safe environment for children to play in.

Further Detials


Wintershead is in a remote location in the heart of Exmoor. Set in 11 acres of beautiful grounds, it is no longer a working farm, but is surrounded by farmland and the open moor. Although we are in a wonderfully isolated spot, there are plenty of nearby villages, pubs and restaurants where you can shop and enjoy a meal out. The tiny village of Simonsbath is about 3 miles away, and Exford a further 5 miles. South Molton in Devon is a delightful country market town about 10 miles away. There are several country pubs offering excellent food all within a short distance from Wintershead.

Exmoor is a great place for a holiday at any time of the year, particularly in spring and early summer. This part of the West Country is relatively undiscovered by mass tourism, and parts of the high moor can still give you a feeling of being in a wilderness, with only the sounds of the moorland birds to disturb the peace. The months of April, May and June are especially good for an Exmoor holiday, when the countryside is bursting with new life.

During these months the long light evenings mean you have more time to enjoy the beauty of the moor, watch wildlife at dusk, and take a walk after your evening meal to watch the sunset. The spring flowers in the hedges and new lambs in the fields are a welcome sight after winter, and these months often have wonderful weather, so you can enjoy the peace and quiet of Exmoor without the crowds of the high season.

Wintershead is a great base for exploring Exmoor and the surrounding area. Walkers and cyclists will enjoy the close proximity of the open moorland, and horse riders will find miles of bridleways to explore. We can provide facilities for people to bring their own horses to Wintershead if they wish, or there are many stables in the area that hire out horses. The spectacular coastlines of North Devon and Cornwall are within easy driving distance, including the popular surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde.



Bird Watching

Somerset is a haven for birders. The county’s position, partly sticking out into the channel and subject to a milder climate than almost any other part of the UK, means Somerset is well positioned to attract migrants and wandering colonisers. Somerset seems to straddle the west and east, with buzzards and redstarts, honey buzzards and bearded tits. There are some great hot spots to bird watch and we know where to go. For details about our bird watching please contact Themed Holiday Ideas.
