SITUATION AND AMENITIES
Brendon is near the Northern coast of Exmoor National Park in the valley which shares its name, well known to readers of Lorna Doone as the picturesque setting for R.D.Blackmore's classic adventure. Also nearby are, Oare Church, Malmsmead and Robbers Bridge which feature primarily throughout the book. Stag Hunters Inn is within a short level walk. The twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth are about 4 miles and, as well as their scenic cliffs and historic harbour, they offer a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants, primary school, library and even cinema. Exmoor National Park offers over 260 square miles of dramatic scenery including some of Britons highest cliffs, steep wooded valleys, rolling pasture and mile after mile of open moorland, a haven for a wide range of wildlife including deer, Exmoor ponies, buzzards and other birds of prey. Exmoor's reputation of one of the finest areas of England for those interested in walking and riding is richly deserved. We understand that Tescos, Sainsbury's and ASDA all deliver. It is about a 50 minute drive to Taunton where trains to London take 1 hour 50 minutes. The Regional centre of Barnstaple is about 45 minutes by car and Combe Martin the surfing beaches of Woolacombe, Saunton and Croyde all within the hour.DESCRIPTION
