Somerset is a beautiful place to escape to, away from the hustle and bustle of urban areas to the calm of the countryside and coast. Exmoor National Park in Somerset is the perfect place to unwind. To the north lies its wonderful coastline, and throughout lies the River Exe and spectacular surrounding woodland. There is a wide selection of Somerset Hotels but our 16th century built hotel The Exmoor White Horse Inn is situated right at the centre of it all. Our inn boasts 28 elegantly decorated bedrooms, and is the perfect place to put your feet up in after a long day of trekking on the moors.
The bedrooms are cosy and many have scenic views, which give a bright start to the morning. Admiring the scenery however is not all Exmoor has to offer. There are many things to do out of doors, which include walking and horse riding. We have our own personal guide, who can show you the best treks and sights to see on the moor. As well as this, we run an exclusive Exmoor safari, which has been long established, where you can observe all of the wonderful wildlife. If you are not up for something so physical, renowned photographer Peter Hendrie also offers excursions allowing you to capture a little piece of Exmoor for yourself. Away from the woodland, you can visit surrounding villages, as well as Exford, where our hotel is based. Also situated close by, to the east in Minehead, is the famous West Somerset Steam Railway.
Although you are never short of things to do, the hotel itself is a great place to unwind and relax, with our wide selection of food and drink. Throughout the day our restaurant serves delightful food, from breakfast to freshly caught seafood to locally sourced game meats, all of high quality. Food is also served in the bar, with favourites such as homemade soups and Somerset ploughman’s lunches on the menu. The bar itself is renowned for having the largest malt collection in the South West, with over 150 different whiskies on offer. Whisky tasting weekends are available for those who want more than just the odd dram.
All in all, Somerset and the Exmoor White Horse Inn offers something for everyone, and is right at the heart of the moor, ensuring you are never short of things to do. Whether you are after fine food and drink, a walking holiday or simply a cosy place to stay after exploring Exmoor all day, it is the perfect place to escape to from a busy everyday life. You may find that you’ll never want to leave!
