Eating and Drinking: The Poltimore Arms is about a mile from Emmetts Grange. It’s a traditional and totally unspoilt Exmoor inn, serving locally brewed real ale and has an appetising menu. It’s remoteness means it’s still not connected to the national grid, so you’ll hear the generator gently chugging away as you arrive

Foodstore: There is a Sainsbury’s in South Molton so why not pre order your grocery order for delivery for the cottage.

Sporting Activities: For a spot of Golf try Minehead Golf Course a challenging and enjoyable course. The second oldest course in the South West after Royal North Devon. Whilst preserving the best traditions of the sport, we have a progressive outlook and take pride in both maintaining and developing our magnificent course. There is always a warm and friendly welcome to individual golfers, societies, corporate groups and visitors. There is wide choice of Horse Riding Stables locally but you could try Burrowhayes Farm RidingStables are open to non-resident and offer horses and ponies to suit all members of the family, novice or experienced. Also you could try some hang gliding, canoeing, falconry, trout fishing and sea fishing which is all accessible locally.

Things you should know about Emmett’s Grange: The front lawn is bordered by a Ha-ha, which has a drop of about 1m.
