Pinkery, Simonsbath, Exmoor, Somerset

Sleeps 10 - 32 8 Bedrooms 32 Dining

Great value off grid large bunkhouse sleeping 32 in an idyllic remote setting in the Exmoor National Park

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Pinkery, Simonsbath, Exmoor, Somerset, sleeps 10 - 32 in 8 bedrooms.

This extended former farmhouse located at the headwaters of the River Barle offers a unique opportunity to stay at the heart of Exmoor National Park's beautiful moorland landscape.

With flexible accommodation and a wide range of facilities, a stay in Pinkery is an experience not to be forgotten. Pinkery is so remote that it is "off grid" and has its own wind turbine and solar panels (backed up with a generator), so you really do get a sense of getting away from it all. A short walk will take you up past the famous Pinkery Pond up onto the open moor with its Bronze Age barrows, wild red deer and wide open spaces.

Pinkery sleeps 32 in dormitories sleeping 4, 5 or 6, each with its own en suite facilities. Groups have the use of a well equipped self catering kitchen and dining room able to seat the whole group, with tables arranged to suit the group's requirements. Upstairs there is a further social room which doubles as a classroom when required.

Set in stunning open moorland, this bunkhouse is ideal for activity groups and those wanting to immerse themselves in the great outdoors. Always offered with exclusive use, we welcome all types of groups.
