Birch Cleave Barns - Dog & Horses Welcome Holiday Accommodation

Nestled in the heart of Somerset lies the picturesque village of Simonsbath, surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of Exmoor National Park. This idyllic location is the perfect destination for anyone looking for a peaceful getaway. Our holiday cottage welcomes both dogs and horses.

One of the main draws of Exmoor is the vast network of walking trails that wind their way through the moors and valleys. From gentle strolls to challenging hikes, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. And with your dogs by your side, you can experience the beauty of nature together.

The moors are home to a diverse array of wildlife, including red deer, Exmoor ponies, and rare birds like the Dartford warbler. With a keen eye and a little luck, you might even spot some of these elusive creatures during your walk.

Many of the local pubs and cafes welcome dogs, so you can enjoy a well-deserved break along your walk.

For equestrian enthusiasts, Exmoor is a true paradise. The moors and hills provide a breathtaking backdrop for riding, and there are many stables in the area that offer guided tours and lessons. Birch Cleave Barns has stabling for two horses allowing you to bring your own horses or ponies along for the adventure.

Whether you’re a seasoned rider or a beginner, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to explore Exmoor on horseback. The trails wind through the hills and valleys, passing by ancient woodlands, crystal-clear streams, and hidden waterfalls.
