Marsh Bridge Cottage bed and breakfast is an ideal location to take advantage of all that the Exmoor National Park and North Devon has to offer. Dulverton is the southern gateway to Exmoor and is situated in the beautiful Barle Valley.

Dulverton is full of natural charm. A small Exmoor Market town which was used as a back drop to the well known film, The Land Girls. It is also the Head Quarters for the Exmoor National Park.


Pleasant walks follow the valley through to Tarr Steps, an ancient clapper bridge on this southern edge of Exmoor between Dulverton and Withypool.

Exmoor has one of the finest stretches of unspoilt countryside and continues to the coast. Experience Dunster with its Castle and famous yarn market, Lynton and Lynmouth, Porlock and the Lorna Doone Valley to name just a few, showing you such wonderful Exmoor scenery to enjoy either on foot, by car or cycle. The open moorland displays its mauve covering of heather in the late summer, whilst snowdrops, primroses and bluebells carpets the woods in Spring. The changing flora and fauna on Exmoor is beautiful when ever you choose to visit.
