Pocket Guide: Exmoor National Park Holnicote Estate Hotels

Holnicote Estate is part of Exmoor National Park and has a rich and varied landscape of rocky coastline, moorlands, woods, villages and green fields. It's popular with ramblers because of its many footpaths which take in a variety of scenic views. Stay at a Somerset hotel close to or in Exmoor and you'll have a great choice of outdoor activities and wonderful scenery right on your doorstep.

From Somerset Hotels to Holnicote Estate on Exmoor

Holnicote House, constructed in the late-15th Century, lies at the heart of the estate. It was rebuilt later on in the 17th century, and in 1705 the Blackford family moved in and did some extensive refurbishing. A great fire swept through what was then called the Blackford mansion in 1779, and shortly afterwards the Acland family completely rebuilt it as a hunting lodge. Exmoor stag hunting was all the rage amongst the moneyed classes at the time, and in fact until as recently as the start of the 21st Century the local hunt was based here. It was then that the National Trust took over and banned hunting on the estate altogether. Another fire in 1821 burnt down the Acland manor, and it subsequently became children's home and later on a hotel.

Visit Holnicote Estate from Somerset Hotels

The 150 miles of pathways that criss-cross Holnicote Estate take in the Selworthy and Dunkerry beacons and numerous picturesque villages such as Allerford, Selworthy and Luccombe. You can also see some of the West Country's most beautiful coastal views here, as the estate is bisected by the South West Coast Path. Holnicote Estate in fact makes an ideal stopover if you're heading to another part of Wessex, and there are loads of excellent Somerset hotels and B&Bs all across the region for you to stay at.

In Dunkerry visitors can climb to Somerset's highest point, the Beacon, in the National Nature Reserve here. Horse riding, cycling and pony trekking are also popular, and the local wildlife includes heath fritillary butterflies, red deer and of course the famous Exmoor wild ponies, which have lived here for centuries.
