Our first family holiday to Exmoor - We all had a lovely time at Emmett's Grange and would like to visit again. Lots still to do, but the walk along the river at Simonsbath is beautiful (even in the rain!). Hope to visit again to enjoy Exmoor on horseback too.
Constant wet weather, was no tether, no hill was too high, no beach too far, we walkerd rather than take the car!
Lots of rain, but good food, good company and dog walks. The lovely house and views also made our holiday. Thank you, Lucy for letting us stay at Emmett's Grange - a lovely old house set in beautiful scenery.
Lovely holiday at Emmett's Grange with the family and pregnant wife (baby Sebastian). Enjoyed sleeping, sleeping and sleeping and eating far too much! Loved the local welcome hamper too.
