Blindwell Bunkhouse, South Molton, Exmoor, Devon, sleeps 4-16 in 3 bedrooms.

On the Devon/Somerset border, this beautiful bunkhouse is situated on a 5th generation family-run Exmoor hill farm. Take a look at the wonderful reviews from guest's on our website. We welcome you to our warm clean and friendly barns, converted recently into contemporary rooms , with large comfortable bunks all with sprung mattress's making for a great night's sleep, and plentiful hot water for showers. The Barle downstairs bunkroom is disabled friendly and also accessible shower and toilet facilities are on the ground floor. The kitchen dining area is fully equipped, with plenty of outdoor space for dining.

Reconnect with family and friends playing board games and walk to the lovely rivers The Barle and The Danesbrook for a picnic and paddle/swim.

At every turn are spectacular landscapes and views, with the bunkhouse at the centre of Exmoor's wildlife. Exmoor ponies on Molland moor as featured on south west trains advert. Red Deer hinds can be seen with their new babies opposite in early summer. In early October the Red Deer stags start the rutting season in our valley and you can hear them bolving in the early morning and evening. Blindwell is also perfectly placed to watch the night sky, as Exmoor is a now Dark Sky park.

The countryside around Blindwell offers an abundance of walking and cycling opportunities, including Cycle route 3 network and the Two Moors Way as well as excellent circular walks which can incorporate a stop for a delicious traditional cream tea. Two pubs offering food are also within 3 miles.

A short drive takes you to the market town of South Molton with lots of amenities, or drive deeper into Exmoor to visit Dulverton for some great restaurants or historical Dunster with it's distinct yarn market and castle.

Alternatively, why not visit the rugged coastline of Lynton and Lynmouth, or some of Devon's best beaches at Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe - just over half an hour away.

We have local contacts should you like to try clay pigeon shooting or coasteering, and mountain bike days can be arranged. There are local fishing lakes and river fishing close by.
