About West Lodge

West Lodge has recently been refurbished to provide stylish comfortable holiday accommodation for four guests. Formerly a Gate Lodge, it sits in between the medieval village of Dunster with its magnificent castle, and the village of Wootton Courtenay in a rural spot within Exmoor's beautiful National Park in Somerset.

Exmoor National Park covers some two hundred and sixty seven miles of wonderful rolling moorland dotted with pretty villages, wooded valleys and miles of dramatic rugged coastline, all just waiting to be explored. The area is abundant with wildlife with Exmoor Ponies and deer (if you're lucky enough to see them) roaming freely, along with pheasants and a multitude of different birds.

A perfect choice for those who enjoy walking and cycling, West Lodge is within easy reach of Timberscombe Woods and Grabbist Coppice. Nearby Holnicote Estate (NT) provides further fantastic cycling and walking opportunities, along with Dunkery Beacon (magnificent views being the highest point of Exmoor), Horner Woods, Webbers Post and Selworthy Beacon. The area also offers good horse riding opportunities.

Dunster picturesque village is only two miles from West Lodge and a popular place to visit with its historic castle, priory, yarn market, dovecote, packhorse bridge and mill. In its own little time warp, it has a good selection of places for a meal out and shops. Timberscombe village is also nearby and just a two minute drive with a real ale pub serving nice food. Other villages and towns worth exploring include Dulverton, Minehead, Porlock (with nearby Porlock Weir), Bossington, Horner with its ancient woodland, pretty Selworthy, Lynton and adjoining Lynmouth.
