About

As the Gateway to Exmoor, South Molton makes a great base to explore the local area from. Dating back to Saxon times, this classic British market town is formed around a pretty central square with impressive historic buildings to either side – take the town Heritage Trail or visit the award-winning local Museum to find out more. South Molton’s traditional markets take place on Thursdays and Saturdays providing a great opportunity to sample some of the area’s acclaimed local produce – you’ll find everything from sausages and home grown vegetables to local fish.

 

South Molton has also built a reputation for its cafés serving locally sourced food and independent shops selling everything from handmade chocolates to boutique homeware – perfect for holiday souvenirs! With a programme of lively events throughout the year, there’s always something going on in South Molton – from vintage rallies to celebrations of the town’s agricultural heritage.

For a great family day out visit the Quince Honey Farm, where you can see the world’s largest exhibition of honeybees up close, watch staff take on a daring bee beard challenge, and take some delicious local honey home with you.
