Avil Holidays Your home away from home


Nestled in the charming village of Timberscombe our cottages offer a peaceful break in a rural paradise...

Here you have the best of both worlds; Exmoor is on your doorstep and the village pub is just across the road. During the day you can walk and drive in some of the most beautiful countryside in England and in the evenings you and your friends can relax in peace.

Exmoor National Park offers some 267 square miles of changing and varied landscapes with a spectacular coastline, sweeping open moorland, ancient oak forests to pretty chocolate box villages.

This magical landscape, a home to varied wildlife, is popular with walkers, horse riders, cyclists or those looking for a relaxing break in tranquil surroundings.

Exmoor has plenty to please the eye and challenge the mind and body. Get close to nature with herds of wild red deer and Exmoor ponies. Heritage and culture abound with castles, ancient ports, paddle steamers and the West Somerset Steam Railway. There is a bustling calendar of events throughout the year.



For families there are plenty of attractions and activities around the area. Spend a day exploring some of the local beauty spots, visit the nearby golden beaches of North Devon, or take an Exmoor Safari.

For those who prefer culinary delights try the many restaurants and country pubs offering the best of local Exmoor produce.

If you think this is all too good to be true then just come and see for yourselves, you will not be disappointed. Here is what our guests have told us:

  • Stayed in lots of barn conversions over the years. This is by far the best – extremely comfortable and well equipped.
  • Beautiful house, real home from home, dogs loved Dunster Beach and Tarr Steps, fabulous area for walking and a real friendly village, will be back.
  • This has been a fantastic holiday! The cottage is home from home, we can’t fault it in any way and we all can’t wait to come back.
