Exmoor is situated in South West Britain, specifically across West Somerset and North Devon. Often referred to as England's best kept secret, Exmoor is a wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking for a holiday in the great outdoors! There's so much to see and do, from short walks to long expeditions across the moors or horse riding, taking in a safari or sight-seeing at your own pace around the 'picture postcard' villages and hamlets.
Old Cleeve is situated in a sheltered spot on the edge of Exmoor, nestled between the hill and the coast. The village was once simply called Cleeve but became known as Old Cleeve to differentiate between nearby site of Cleeve Abbey in Washford, which was a monastery founded in the late 12th century as a house for monks. Today Cleeve Abbey is looked after by English Heritage and is open to the public; it is one of the best-preserved medieval Cistercian monastic sites in Britain.
The West Somerset Railway is a steam operated heritage railway and runs very near to Old Cleeve, passing over Black Monkey Bridge, which was built around 1860. Old Cleeve was also near the route of the West Somerset Mineral Railway which ran from the ironstone mines in the Brendon Hills to the port of Watchet on the Bristol Channel.
