Walking around Minehead and Exmoor from Woodcombe Lodges

WALKING FROM WOODCOMBE LODGES

One of the magic elements to a holiday at Woodcombe is the chance to get out into the fabulous open countryside surrounding us. We are set in one of the most peaceful and clean environments in England with an unsurpassed range of wildlife and flora that can be enjoyed on our doorstep. We do our best to open this up to you by offering a range of walks from our door and close access to the National Park, South West Coastal Path, Coleridge Way and Quantocks to name but a few.

Walks on Exmoor

Woodcombe Lodges is set on a hillside down a quiet country lane on the very edge of Minehead on one side and the Exmoor National Park on the other.

This puts us in a unique position to allow our guests to enjoy both the town and coastline around Minehead, access to the South West Coastal path and the wide open spaces of the National Park.

The range of walks from our door is endless but to assist our guests we have a range of over ten walks from our gate which take from 20 minutes to four and a half hours. These are set out in concise note form for you to carry on your walk .
