Allerford, Somerset

A quintessential Exmoor village within the Holnicote Estate, with quaint little cottages, a village shop & post office, and a working forge. The school is now a museum with some interesting displays of rural life, and just up the road is Exmoor Falconry & Animal Farm. Allerford’s main claim to fame is the 15th century packhorse bridge arching over the Aller brook; go and have your photo taken on it; there’s a small car park, and if you fancy afternoon tea go to West Lynch Farm Tea Gardens or Crosslane House.
