Description

What to do in Dulverton


Dulverton is a jewel in the far west of Somerset, where streets are lined with cosy cottages and charming restaurants. It’s tucked into a spectacular and steeply-wooded valley where the River Barle meets the River Exe, and you’ll find many important bridges in the area - including the famous, prehistoric Tarr Steps, one of Exmoor’s highlights. Venture outside the village to explore the ancient Oldberry Castle site and the iron age hill forts of Mounsey Castle.

Nature lovers will feel right at home in this national park, which is internationally recognised for its populations of deer, otters, bats and dormice. It’s been designated Europe’s first International Dark Skies Reserve, which means it offers stunning uninterrupted night sky views. The National Park Centre, which hosts exhibitions and a gallery about the area, makes for a great family day out, as does the Guildhall Heritage and Arts Centre. Here, you’ll see what life in Dulverton was like at the end of the 1800s thanks to the preserved Lamb Inn buildings.
