A timeless rural landscape of thatched cottages, nestled in the vale of the Holnicote Estate.


Things to see and do

Selworthy is a good place to start discovering the wonderfully varied Exmoor landscapes within the 4,856-hectare (12,000-acre) Holnicote Estate. This is a timeless rural landscape of thatched cottages, a fine medieval church, walks through wooded combes and sweeping views across the vale to Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor's highest point.
