A medieval village in the north-eastern corner of Exmoor, boasting an impressive castle built not long after the 1066 Norman Conquest.

The views of Exmoor, the Bristol Channel coastline and displays of vividly coloured tulips made it worth the effort

  1. Whimsical and heavenly. I live a quiet life. This would suit me fine but my grandchildren aren’t ready for something this peaceful yet. Love the pictures. A slice of paradise for sure. ❤ ❤ ❤ Thank you for sharing. Absolutely gorgeous.
