Sannacott Cottage
Area / Things to do

  From Sannacott Holiday Cottage and Sannacott Farmhouse there are many sporting and interesting activities to enjoy be it walking riding or cycling in the Exmoor National Park – exploring Tarr Steps and the Barle River in the beautiful wooded valley, sailing at Wimbleball Reservoir, enjoying the small country towns of South Molton and Dulverton or the delightful local pubs in Withypool, Exford and Simonsbath. Venturing towards the North Devon coast you can surf at Croyd Bay, cycle the Tarka Trail along the stunning coast line or just enjoy the numerous beaches in the area such as Saunton Sands, Putsborough and Woolacombe, or head further south down the coast to Westward Ho! Clovelly or Hartland.

From Sannacott there is a wealth of countryside sport accessible and we can advise and recommend where to go you if you wish to take part in fishing, clay pigeon shooting, trekking on horseback, or following the numerous local packs of hounds. During the Spring there are many local point-to-points in the area. The flying of hawks is also available in the area for those interested in these amazing and beautiful birds.

For the garden lovers there is a wonderful variety of very well known gardens to see. The Royal Horticultural Society garden at Rosemoor, the National Trust’s Knightshayes, Killerton and Arlington Court, Marwood Gardens, Glebe Cottage Garden, Heddon Hall, Hartland Abbey, Cothay Manor and numerous small and delightful nurseries and private gardens in Devon and Somerset.

  North Molton Village is just 2 miles from Sannacott self catering cottage, and boasts two pubs and an excellent village shop and post office. The small town of South Molton has two weekly markets where an excellent range of local produce is sold. There are meat and fish stalls, fruit and vegetables, a huge selection of West Country cheeses, lots of plants and shrubs, books and many other interesting products. The town is very well equipped with butchers, a greengrocer, an excellent organic dried food store, banks, chemists, sports shops, book shop and antique shops, a saddlery and a supermarket. The Honey Farm is well worth a visit – and for the younger or more energetic there is the Climbing Wall and a swimming pool.
