Moorlands is set in six acres of grounds within the Exmoor National Park, with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Christine and Ian Corderoy offer visitors, seeking good quality and comfortable accommodation, a warm and friendly welcome. Special offers are usually available throughout the year for those wishing to stay that bit longer (see Tariff).
Woody Bay Surrounded by arable farmland and wild moor, the beautiful Woody Bay and the stunning South West Coast Path, within two miles walk or drive are well worth a visit. The twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth are only four miles away, offering a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. A little further afield are the beautiful beaches of Woolacombe and Croyde for those who prefer the sun, sea or surf.
Colonel Benjamin Green Lake built Moorlands in the late 19th Century as a gentleman's residence as part of his plans to develop the Wooda Bay Estate. Subsequently at the turn of the century Starkey Knight and Ford, a local brewery, re-opened the property as the Station Hotel to provide shelter for travellers on the Lynton to Barnstaple railway. In recent years it has been extended to provide both bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation, our emphasis now being on quiet relaxation. Evening meals are available in our licensed dinning room and coffee served in our residents lounge with real fire during the colder months.
Horse riding, tennis, golf, fresh and sea fishing are all available in the area. Explore Exmoor either with map and compass, or a short stroll through our garden will find the Woody Bay Station a beautifully restored narrow gauge railway offering rides (approximately 1 mile) to Killington Lane, from which walks are available to Heddon Hall, Parracombe or through the beautiful Heddon Valley to the sea.
