Reviewed yesterday for a stay in August 2017

Location perfect although camping in the adjacent fields over Bank holiday weekend was a little noisy. Dogs were well catered for but garden perimeter not 100% secure.
Easy access to main roads but side roads very narrow with many passing places.
Local pub Lorna Doone excellent with lovely cider no good food.
Would happily return for another holiday

About the neighbourhood
Malmsmead sits on the Somerset-Devon border deep in the valley below County Gate. The 17th century packhorse bridge spans Badgworthy Water and is the focal point of the hamlet. R.D. Blackmore's 'Lorna Doone' novel, published in 1869, is a romance based on a group of historical characters, he used the landscape of this area as a basis for the novel.
Malmsmead falls within the parish of Oare, known as 'Are' in the Domesday Book of 1086, the parish includes the hamlet of Oareford and Culbone which has its own tiny church - said to be the smallest church in England.
This area is excellent for walking; you can chose to stay within the shelter of the wooded valleys and explore the remains of medieval villages or enjoy delicious pub food and cream teas. Or you may wish to...
