Yenworthy Mill

Oare, Lynmouth, North Devon, Away from it all

Yenworthy Mill a luxury holiday cottage near the Somerset/Devon border - set in a spectacular location on the northern slopes of Exmoor National Park, a few hundred yards from the coast and with views of the Bristol Channel. The holiday cottage is part of a farm which is situated in ‘Doone Country’, and actually appears in the novel itself.

Yenworthy Mill is ideal for walkers - a rugged pathway leads from the farm down to a secluded rocky beach and there is direct access to one of the most scenic sections of the South West Coast Path which runs through the farm. There are 13 miles of footpaths to explore on the farm itself and it even has its own historic monument - an old Roman Fort at Old Burrow. A haven for wildlife, it has four Sites of Special Scientific Interest. There are rare species of butterflies and trees, large areas of heather moorland and impressive cliff geology.
