Lynch Mill, Bossington, Somerset

If you’re staying at Bossington Hall on Exmoor get up early one morning and stroll up to Lynch Mill for your eggs; it’s one of those simple joys in life, a quintessential pleasure. Organic veg, home made jam and free range eggs are all set out on a wayside stall over the little stone bridge; fill your basket, pop your money in the honesty box and on the way back, poke your head in the wonderful medieval chapel just down the road; a huge wooden bolt bars the door and the roof has some elaborately carved roof bosses. Head home for breakfast with a spring in your step and a song in your heart; perfect.
